Minicom Introduces the Data Center Alliance

Published November 18th, 2009 - 03:08 GMT

 Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of
IT & KVM remote access and management solutions, is proud to announce a new
initiative, the Data Center Alliance (DCA). The Data Center Alliance was formed with
Minicom, Wright Line, ServerTechnology, Uptime Devices, and Digi International to
fill the information gap in the marketplace by providing a centralized,
comprehensive source for building successful IT infrastructures.

The mission of the DCA is to serve as a central repository of data center/server
room products and services and to provide IT decision makers with a clear
understanding of the different solutions available for their IT infrastructures.

Because each organization has unique IT challenges, there is no generic solution
that adequately meets the requirements of every CIO.  Mixed IT environments demand
specialized solutions in order to optimize resources. The Data Center Alliance
brings together the best in class IT infrastructure manufacturers into one place
where IT decision makers can find the data they need to make smart decisions about
their growing data center needs.

"In today's complex IT environment, customers welcome simplicity. The program lets
companies see all the puzzle pieces in one place. The value of the program is having
quality offerings from all aspects of the IT infrastructure in one convenient
location," explains David Zucker, Minicom's Director of KVM Business Development.

Members of the Data Center Alliance benefit from joint marketing efforts such as
webinars, podcasts, trade shows, and cross promotion via social media marketing.
Members also enjoy increased exposure to the right channels through lead generation
and heightened brand awareness.

"The Alliance is the next step in bringing Digi closer to other data center solution
providers," said Brian O'Rourke, principal product line manager, Digi International.
 "We provide industry leading console management solutions, and we are pleased to
partner with other organizations to help customers better manage their data

"Wright Line is pleased to continue its long-standing relationship with Minicom and
looks forward to participating in the Data Center Alliance. We're excited to lend
our assistance to projects where our innovative airflow management solutions,
including our patented Heat Containment System(TM), can assist IT professionals in
their quest to make their data centers more efficient and reliable," stated Pete
Rumsey, Wright Line's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

"This Alliance helps to bring best of breed product solutions together, ensuring
compatibility within the marketplace," notes Calvin Nicholson, Director of Product
Marketing for Server Technology.  "We are proud to be part of this new effort to
provide infrastructure monitoring, management and control solutions that increase
data center efficiency."
