Emerson Network Power and Joyent Partner to Provide Unparalleled Visibility, Efficiency and Resource Optimization for the Cloud

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today announced it will partner with leading high-performance cloud infrastructure provider Joyent to transform and optimize how physical and logical data center resources are packaged and delivered for public and private clouds. This will augment the efficient, standardized cloud solution available from Joyent today.

Joyent and Emerson Network Power will address the need for industrialized cloud services by combining Joyent’s software-defined data center suite SmartDatacenter with Emerson’s Trellis™ platform for DCIM. Built partially with Joyent’s Node.js runtime, the Trellis platform runs on the Joyent cloud today. By integrating the Trellis platform into its cloud management stack, Joyent will be able to significantly improve ease of use, industrialization, efficiency and sustainability for customers of its cloud services. The Trellis platform will become a tightly integrated component of the Joyent Smartdatacenter. The commercialization of this fully integrated, standardized solution is planned for the first half of 2013.

“We selected Emerson as our partner because the Trellis platform is the only DCIM solution available today that can provide holistic, real-time visibility from service processor to power grid and enable the dynamic optimization of data center physical resources,” said Jason Hoffman, founder and CTO of Joyent. “Our partnership will enable us to offer a unique, tightly integrated, modular, highly efficient solution that optimizes the entire infrastructure based on the energy consumption of application workloads.”

Combining Emerson Network Power’s critical infrastructure insight through the Trellis platform with Joyent’s orchestration layer, the two companies will be able to track the energy consumption of virtual workloads and the impact each virtual workload has on the physical infrastructure. Operators will gain complete visibility into their entire cloud from the grid up, enabling discreet measurement of application workload/watt, which promises to allow applications to be charged back to the corresponding owner. The application workload/watt measurement will also allow operators to optimize the entire infrastructure based on the energy efficiency of applications. The Trellis platform’s purpose built real-time architecture with hardware and software engineered to work together with the Avocent® Universal Management Gateway is an industry first and the only solution today that can make this possible.

The integration of the Trellis platform with Joyent’s SmartDatacenter will bring infrastructure visibility into the cloud orchestration layer, enabling resource delivery optimization that improves overall performance, energy efficiency and reduces costs.  Key benefits include acceleration of time-to-deployment of infrastructure resources up to 70 percent through more rapid, efficient resource provisioning. Maintenance cost reductions up to 40 percent, energy cost reductions up to 25 percent and capital expenditures reductions up to 50 percent can be delivered through better infrastructure management.

“Emerson Network Power is delighted to partner with the premier cloud services infrastructure provider to bring additional optimization and efficiency enhancements through the end-to-end management of all data center resources,” said Steve Hassell, president of the Avocent business of Emerson Network Power. “Integrating the Trellis platform with the Joyent cloud not only allows optimization of end-to-end performance, it enables the next generation of DCIM based on application workload performance and unlocks new possibilities for holistic data center energy optimization.”

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
