RiMatrix S is an alternative to traditional datacentre construction, Rittal claims. The solution promises accelerated configuration, delivery, and operation, as well as enhanced energy efficiency.
It draws from the existing Rittal IT modular product line, incorporating predefined modules, including server and network enclosures, climate control and power supply.
Rittal offers a RiMatrix S Configurator on its web site where clients can calculate whether speed, installation and standardised processes outweigh any possible disadvantages from the reduced customisation.
The delivery time for the product is listed as six weeks. Rittal said this is possible because of the datacentre modules’ high level of standardisation; RiMatrix S is assigned in blocks.
According to the vendor, RiMatrix S was designed as a solution for modern, standardised datacentre infrastructure with uniform interfaces and continuous automation. Rittal sees this as a means of saving customers’ time and money.
The modules are available in versions with six (Single 6) or nine (Single 9) server racks which can be combined to form larger units.
Rittal owner and chief executive officer (CEO), Friedhelm Loh, said RiMatrix S is another step to “fundamentally change the rules of the market with this worldwide novel approach to standardised datacentres.”
RiMatrix S will be launched with a German theme to honour the company’s heritage; this means an Oktoberfest theme.
