Infotech Lead America: Emerson Network Power announced its partnership with cloud infrastructure provider Joyent.

The partnership is aimed at integrating the Trellis platform with the Joyent cloud to allow optimization of end-to-end performance.

The strategic association enables DCIM based on application workload performance and unlocks new possibilities for holistic data center energy optimization.

“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.

Joyent and Emerson Network Power are working to combine Joyent’s software-defined data center suite, SmartDataCenter, with Emerson’s Trellis platform to improve ease of use, industrialization, efficiency and sustainability for customers of Joyent’s cloud services.

By combining critical infrastructures, 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. The Trellis platform will become an integrated component of the Joyent SmartDataCenter. The commercialization of this fully integrated, standardized solution is planned for the first half of 2013.

The partnership enables acceleration of time-to-deployment of infrastructure resources up to 70 percent through more rapid, efficient resource provisioning. In addition, with better infrastructure management, 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.

“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.
