No Limits Software announces the upcoming release of version 3.0 of their RaMP DCIM solution, with a new user interface, new tablet and mobile versions, new reporting features, support for patch panels, improved drag and drop support for setting up rack power and network connections, a new cost model for tracking all costs for an asset, and enhanced support for managing warranties, service contracts, and leases. “Version 3.0 was a major endeavor by our dedicated team and I could not be more pleased with the results,” said Dave Cole, the president of No Limits Software. He adds that “I think our customers are going to love the new functionality and dramatic new look and feel.”
The RaMP DCIM solution provides data center management from the virtual machine to the IT infrastructure (servers, blades, storage, network) to the Facilities infrastructure (power, cooling, environmental monitoring). RaMP’s auto-discovery allows you to be up and running in hours rather than months and the intuitive user interface reduces training time. RaMP also provides software and operating system license management, state of the art workflow management to manage tasks, and complete integration with intelligent rack solutions from multiple manufacturers.
RaMP 3.0 also introduces new pricing models, allowing customers to choose between traditional software license with annual maintenance, software as a service (SaaS) model with the software running on premise, or SaaS model running in the cloud. This new flexibility will allow customers to choose the model which best suits their needs.
RaMP 3.0 will be on display at the No Limits Software booth (Booth 117) at the upcoming AFCOM Data Center World conference in Las Vegas on April 28 – May 2 and will be available for general release in May.
