APC by Schneider Electric has released the latest generation of its NetBotz security and environmental monitoring products that integrate rack access control into existing architectures.
The solution was designed to provide IT asset protection from a network closet to the datacentre environment by combining environmental monitoring, video surveillance and rack access in a single platform.
According to the integrated critical power and cooling service provider, improving scalability and reliability is a common challenge most datacentres and IT managers face.
The company aims to deliver a continually high level of integrated datacentre solution service to customers even with high demands.
The next generation of NetBotz products deliver four key enhancements:
- Mass configuration of up to 130 rack doors within a single user interface, eradicating the need to configure each door separately.
- Compatibility with multiple rack solutions for remote and local access integration within Chatsworth GlobalFrame and APC NetShelter SX enclosures.
- One IP address for up to 26 doors and 200 credentials to reduce the total cost of ownership while increasing the maximum number of unique users.
- “Basement" mounting eliminates the need to occupy rack space.
A new post-configuration insight service providing a structured hand-over from the network integration engineer to the customer is also available.
The NetBotz 4.0 is priced at $1450 per 2-door or 2-handle kit and is available globally.
