Chatsworth Products and ZPE Systems collaborate

Chatsworth Products (CPI) says that its eConnect® Power Distribution Units (PDUs) now fully integrate with ZPE Systems’ open infrastructure management platform, Nodegrid®, providing customers with even more advanced outlet control and monitoring capabilities.

The integration delivers a unified solution that provides network and facility teams with out-of-band access for cabinet-level power, environmental and access control parameters, allowing these teams to build out an automation plan that helps create a self-sufficient, self-healing environment, particularly in edge sites.

“Nodegrid’s robust and reliable infrastructure management capabilities are superior and add many benefits for customers trying to manage assets in hybrid environments. We are excited to join forces and provide customers with an extensive visualization capability, allowing the PDUs to be managed through the same interface that could be used to manage compute and storage devices,” says Ashish Moondra, Sr. Product Manager at CPI.

Now, customers can monitor and collect outlet data, and execute scripts according to parameters to automate and self-heal network environments, giving them a 360-degree view of their networking sites, all from within a single, vendor-neutral infrastructure management solution. Through Nodegrid, eConnect PDUs gain application programming interface (API) ties and webhooks for additional automation, as well as indirect Command Line Interface (CLI) access to the PDU itself for additional extensibility.

“ZPE is pleased to collaborate with a leading PDU manufacturer that has such a successful track record in solving unique challenges in cabinet-level power monitoring and access control,” says Arnaldo Zimmermann, Cofounder and CEO of ZPE Systems.

“The integration with eConnect PDUs grants Nodegrid customers access to a robust, intelligent PDU solution. CPI’s eConnect PDUs have the highest operating temperature range in the industry and allow for dramatic savings in networking costs with Secure Array® IP consolidation technology,” Zimmermann adds. “Networking and facilities teams can do more than just monitor and manage, with Nodegrid they can now automate based on thresholds and data parameters—our support for actionable data means much more efficient network/facilities management.”
