APAC data centres will benefit from EkkoSoft Critical’s ability to consistently unlock 30% data centre cooling energy savings and sub 12-month ROI

Rahi, a global IT solutions provider with a carefully selected suite of solutions for smart Data Centres has announced a major distribution partnership with UK-based EkkoSense. Under the agreement, Rahi will offer EkkoSense’s innovative software-driven data centre optimization solutions to clients across the APAC region.

The partnership will see EkkoSense’s unique EkkoSoft® Critical M&E optimization and capacity management platform added to Rahi’s extensive global data centre modernization portfolio. Rahi offers data centre and IT services to support critical space, power, cooling and infrastructure optimization. EkkoSoft Critical, with its proven ability to unlock average data centre cooling energy savings of 30% and ROI in under a year, will enable Rahi to unlock further performance optimization benefits for its customers.

EkkoSoft Critical is a powerful monitoring, 3D visualisation and analytics platform for data centres that’s designed to be particularly easy for operations staff to use and understand. It collects granular real-time data, helping them to visualize airflow management improvements, manage complex capacity decisions, and quickly highlight any worrying trends in cooling performance. This effectively removes data centre thermal risk and provides 100% rack-level ASHRAE thermal compliance.

Bruce Moore, APAC Managing Director for Rahi said: “At team Rahi, we are committed to helping our clients optimize their data centre performance, and we only add solutions to our modernization portfolio when they clearly demonstratevalue and operational savings for our customers. EkkoSense’s EkkoSoft Critical solution opens up entirely new areas of software-driven optimization performance. With proven international deployments already delivering quantifiable benefits we embrace the software as a pivotal addition and a powerful differentiator to our selected suite of Data Centre solutions. We look forward to delivering customer happiness with EkkoSense across the APAC market.”

Dean Boyle, CEO and EkkoSense co-founder, added: “Our EkkoSoft Critical solution has already earned a strong reputation for saving data centre cooling energy, reducing thermal risk and releasing capacity. We know that these benefits will prove valuable for Rahi’s customers. However, we’re also convinced that EkkoSoft Critical’s ability to deliver clear visibility into how to improve their environmental footprint and carbon will prove increasingly important, along with its ability to deliver evidence-based recommendations for further infrastructure investment decisions. Rahi is a great distribution partner for EkkoSense,  and a key addition to our global EkkoSense ecosystem.”

EkkoSoft Critical software delivers an average 30% cooling energy saving, significantly reducing cooling equipment capex investment requirements and delivering a valuable contribution to corporate NetZero commitments through sustained carbon usage reductions in the data centre. The EkkoSense solution provides an attractive business case as it enables true real-time M&E Capacity Planning for power, cooling and space – at a fraction of the cost of more expensive and complex DCIM solutions.
