2bm signs exclusive worldwide agreement to distribute next generation power monitoring solution
2bm has announced an exclusive worldwide agreement with Jacarta to distribute and install the iMeter solution.
The agreement is expected to generate £5m worth of sales for 2bm over the next two years.
The 2bm iMeter, manufactured by Jacarta, is a highly advanced environmental and power monitoring solution, which has been designed to help businesses monitor and reduce power consumption in the data centre.
The iMeter can be used at rack level, providing insight into energy requirements of servers, storage area networks and switches, as well as the attendant supporting equipment, such as lighting and air conditioning, that will enable the controlled reduction of a data centre’s Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating.
Mark King, director at 2bm commented, ‘The reduction of excessive power consumption is a major government initiative over the coming months and those organisations which fail to achieve efficiency savings face a significant potential fine. However, it is difficult for organisations to meet these reduction targets without understanding and identifying their key areas of power consumption.
‘The 2bm iMeter enables businesses to accurately and intelligently monitor power usage throughout the organisation for the first time, gaining a much tighter control of power consumption in order to address the demands of both government and shareholders.’
