JouleX, a leading innovator in enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities, today announced the launch of the JouleX-ReadyTM technology partner program. Available globally, the JouleX-Ready program, which includes a comprehensive software development kit (SDK), will provide technical validation and assurance for software and hardware vendors to ensure compatibility and interoperability with the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) platform.
The JouleX-Ready program spans a variety of vendors that offer hardware and software including devices for distributed offices, data centers, and facilities systems, including the following categories of solutions:
- PDU/Smart PDU/racks/smart meters/UPS
- Facilities/building management devices/interfaces
- Industrial/process automation devices/interfaces
- Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
- IT asset management systems
- Environmental sensors/monitoring
- Virtual computing
- Storage devices and management
- Thin clients/personal computers/mobile devices
- PC power management
- Server power management
- Network management/infrastructure
- VoIP devices and management systems
“With the growing interest in enterprise energy management, we are constantly looking for avenues to help our partners extend their offerings to meet their customers’ needs―whether it is providing technical validation and support or enhancing global marketing initiatives,” said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX. “The JouleX-Ready technology partner program formalizes these activities to provide partners with the technical resources and professional guidance that our own customers have come to expect from the JouleX brand.”
JouleX has made it easy to become part of the JouleX-Ready program. Vendors simply complete an application and, once approved, they gain access to the JouleX Energy Manager Software Development Kit (SDK) and other technical resources to assist them. Once the vendor’s solution is validated, they can display the JouleX-Ready logo on their packaging and marketing materials for qualified offerings. Additionally, their companies are listed on the JouleX-Ready webpage, giving them global visibility to customers, service providers, system integrators and sales teams worldwide that may be looking for readily deployable enterprise energy management offerings.
Key partners such as Calxeda, FieldServer Technologies, Project Performance Corporation and WeSustain are already leveraging the JouleX-Ready program to validate their solution integrations with the JouleX Energy Manager platform.
“We leverage the JouleX-Ready technology partner program for our FieldServer Gateways to provide energy visibility, analysis, and control for non-IP systems and devices,” said Richard Theron, national sales manager for FieldServer Technologies. "Achieving JouleX-Ready validation shows customers that our solution meets or exceeds JouleX compatibility criteria and successfully integrates with one or more of the JouleX Energy Manager products.”
All four JouleX products are eligible for integration including JouleX Energy Manager for PCs, for Distributed Offices, for Cisco EnergyWise and for Data Centers.
JouleX is the leading innovator in sustainable energy management systems for the enterprise. Its flagship solution, the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM), provides the Global 2000 and government agencies with the ability to monitor, analyze and control energy usage for all network-connected devices and systems across the enterprise, including in distributed offices, data centers and facilities. Importantly, JEM is the first network-based energy management system that works without the use of software agents, dramatically reducing installation time and removing the maintenance burden associated with similar technologies. JEM decreases energy costs by up to 60 percent with no impact on user productivity, availability and service level agreements. JEM also provides a robust, centralized enterprise-level reporting and decision support engine that supports corporate sustainability reporting and compliance with emerging carbon monitoring requirements.
