2bm signs exclusive worldwide agreement to distribute next-generation power monitoring solution

2bm, an innovator in data centre technology, has announced an exclusive worldwide agreement with Jacarta, the leading supplier of environmental monitoring and power monitoring equipment, to distribute and install the revolutionary iMeter solution. The agreement is expected to generate £5,000,000 worth of sales for 2bm over the next two years.

The 2bm iMeter, manufactured by Jacarta, is a highly advanced environmental and power monitoring solution which has been designed to help businesses monitor and reduce power consumption in the data centre. Uniquely, the 2bm iMeter is the first product to provide an intelligent, reliable and accurate method to monitor power consumption without requiring any system downtime. This highly innovative technology can be used at rack level, providing unprecedented insight into energy requirements of servers, Storage Area Networks and switches, as well as the attendant supporting equipment, such as lighting and air conditioning, that will enable the controlled reduction of a data centre’s Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating.

Mark King, Director at 2bm comments, “The reduction of excessive power consumption is a major government initiative over the coming months and those organisations which fail to achieve efficiency savings face a significant potential fine. However, it is difficult for organisations to meet these reduction targets without understanding and identifying their key areas of power consumption. The 2bm iMeter enables businesses to accurately and intelligently monitor power usage throughout the organisation for the first time, gaining a much tighter control of power consumption in order to address the demands of both government and shareholders.”  

King continues, “The 2bm iMeter is unique to the market as it has the ability to be implemented in a ‘live’ data centre environment without a complete re-fit, allowing normal uninterrupted operation. Within just three days, an average sized data centre can be set up with the 2bm iMeter solution, providing managers with real-time access to continuous, in-depth and accurate energy consumption information.”

King concludes, “Since the launch of the iMeter power monitoring solution last year we have already seen a number of UK businesses placing significant orders, and we expect demand to increase further throughout this year as we start to distribute the iMeter internationally. We are delighted to sign this worldwide agreement with Jacarta as it clearly demonstrates that 2bm is a trusted, reliable partner with a proven track record and heritage in the data centre industry. We are looking forward to working closely with Jacarta to drive global sales of the iMeter and help businesses to reduce excessive power consumption within the enterprise.”
