EkkoSense, the UK-based data center M&E Capacity Planning and Simulation specialist, has announced a software partnership with Rentaload, the leading European load bank rental company.
Under the agreement Rentaload will integrate EkkoSense’s powerful EkkoSoft Critical M&E SaaS software and sensors into its data center offering, providing customers with cost-effective ongoing monitoring, management and maximization of their critical data center M&E infrastructure.
Designed for server room power acceptance testing during the building, renovation or maintenance of data centers, Rentaload’s rack-mounted load bank solutions provide highly accurate insight into a data center’s functionality under normal operating conditions.
EkkoSoft Critical is the first M&E SaaS software platform to offer a practical and cost-effective way for organizations to achieve real time visibility of their critical data center heartbeat operational data. Because of this, EkkoSense’s intuitive SaaS provides an entirely complementary solution to the Rentaload proposition.
“Rentaload offers a portfolio of smart electrical load bank solutions for testing resistive loads for initial data center commissioning (Level 4 and of IST Commissioning Tests) / deployments. Now, by working with EkkoSense and its EkkoSoft Critical software, we’re able to provide data center customers with innovative power and cooling support for their IT and M&E operations,” commented Pierre-Luc Barbe, Rentaload’s General Manager.
“EkkoSense’s SaaS software is simple to deploy and use, providing us with a smart solution to build out our Rentaload proposition. We look forward to sharing its undoubted benefits with our many customers across Europe.”
“Applying Rentaload’s proven load bank technology is a great way for organizations to test the actual future load of their data centers, and directly test whether their initial power and cooling provision is adequate and compliant,” added EkkoSense’s CEO Dean Boyle.
“Through this partnership, Rentaload will now be able to take advantage of EkkoSense’s powerful front-end software, on site telemetry, low-cost 3D visualization, power monitoring and cooling analytics to deliver further value for their customers. Adding our wireless sensors and EkkoSoft Critical cloud software to the portfolio will also allow Rentaload to provide their customers with deep insight into their data center cooling, power and space performance, with an ongoing tool to monitor, manage and maximize their critical M&E investments.”
