CUI Global’s subsidiary and Virtual Power Systems' software defined power solutions selected by SAP

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

CUI Global Inc (NASDAQ:CUI ) announced Thursday that its wholly-owned power and electromechanical division, CUI Inc, and Virtual Power Systems (VPS) creators of Intelligent Control of Energy (ICE) software defined power (SDP) infrastructure solutions, have been selected by the SAP Co-Innovation Lab (CIOL), in Silicon Valley.

The move represents the next step to increasing power capacity and availability within a data center, following SAP’s successful 90-day proof of concept trial of VPS’ Intelligent Control of Energy (ICE) platform. It will allow for the integration of CUI’s ICE Switch and ICE Block to intelligently control power infrastructure.

The groundbreaking SDP platform automatically identifies, aggregates and pools all sources of stranded power within a data center and routes energy on-demand to racks, nodes, workloads or circuits in real time. 

CUI’s proprietary hardware platform is the industry’s first software defined power infrastructure ICE-compatible device based on Virtual Power Systems ICE software platform. CUI Inc is the exclusive hardware design and development partner to Virtual Power Systems for the ICE Switch and Block solutions.

“SAP’s selection of the ICE platform serves as key validation by a technology leader whose global data center network is fundamental to the delivery of its services to customers worldwide,” said CUI Global CEO William Clough.

“Through joint sales and marketing efforts we and VPS have been systematically building a pipeline of prospective customers, and SAP’s selection is a very clear indication that we are addressing an imperative for the data center industry in solving their power capacity challenges,” added Clough.

Since power and cooling typically cost more than the IT equipment they support, data center owners and cloud operators are struggling to improve energy efficiency without compromising system reliability.

VPS and CUI Inc address this challenge by utilizing SDP to abstract power controls through a layer of software virtualization. By applying machine learning and predictive analytics, SDP improves data center management, which encourages growth, while releasing power-capacity constraints. ICE technology reallocates power according to capacity and availability demands while reducing the cost of data center capital and operational expenses by up to 50%.

“We have proven that software defined power effectively recaptures stranded power and makes it available for additional workloads on existing power footprints,” said Virtual Power Systems CEO Steve Houck. “With ICE, we are removing the biggest barrier to application and infrastructure deployments facing customers’ today—power costs, availability, and provisioning.”

      If we talk about software development it’s always important to pay attention to functional testing. Not every developer is great and even super skilled coder can make mistakes. That’s why I find it useful to use such services.
