RCNTEC Introduces Innovative Solution for Power Management at Data Centers

RCNTEC, creator of the first Russian horizontally-scalable Resilient Cloud Storage data storage system and developer of business IT solutions has announced the release of the Resilient Power Control Module (RPCM), an innovative device to remotely control power for Data Сenters.

Designed for the corporate sector, the RPCM will enhance and simplify Dada Сenters infrastructure, improve system reliability and fault-tolerance, and reduce the total cost of ownership (ТСО). It can also be used by the individual consumer; for example, to protect against a fire or short-circuit in a household.

In terms of its functionality, the RPCM is unmatched on the market and is the only device today that combines remote power control and Automatic Transfer Swtiching (ATS) capabilities without interrupting the hardware plugged into it. Each port has short circuit protection and electrical power metering.

HOSTKEY, a major provider of colocation, hosting, and HPC services has confirmed that RCNTEC’s new development comes just in time. “We are extremely interested in a solution that combines ATS capability, remote power control, short circuit protection and electrical power metering separately at each port. This solution will make our colocation service much more attractive and convenient for clients, without bumping the price up too high,” noted HOSTKEY General Director Pyotr Chayanov.

Tempesto, distributor of solutions to create uninterruptable, guaranteed electrical power has already expressed interest in a smart PDU RPCM. “For over ten years, we have been supplying hardware for Data Сenters and are always looking for the best solutions. RCNTEC’s Resilient Power Control Module (RPCM) will be very attractive to our customers,” said Tempesto Development Director Anton Saraev.

RCNTEC’s new development will be of interest to the partner channel of OCS Distribution, which is the leading federal distributer of IT solutions. “Power control modules manufactured in other countries, including smart modules, sometimes have less functionality. The specialists and developers at the Russian company RCNTEC are telling us to rethink how we power hardware by expanding the PDU capabilities. The functionality implemented in the Resilient Power Control Module (RPCM) offers unique opportunities to monitor and control the power for hardware, which could easily set a new bar for quality for the modules that distribute power in server rooms. We are really excited to see this unique PDU model start selling and to see other new RCNTEC products in our showroom,” said Alexander Osipenko, product manager at OCS Distribution.

“Today everyone expects information systems to work uninterrupted, 24/7. Our development is a direct response to the market demand that we keep hearing about from customers. The RPCM will help Data Сenters upgrade their IT infrastructure, boost the level of services rendered, cut costs on hardware and cut costs for clients, while also improving failure tolerance,” says RCNTEC General Director Dennis Neshtoon.

Starting tomorrow, you can request a test and pre-order on the RCNTEC website.

Mid-summer 2017, testing can begin and you can acquire a RPCM.



The device has 2 power inlet ports and 10 outgoing ports, each of which administrators can turn on, turn off, or reset without physically visiting the facility. It has the highest in the industry density of controllable electrical power ports per unit for systems with ATS.

ATS and failover functions built into the RPCM and controllable PDU mean cost savings on hardware and being able to remotely reset consumers. If the electrical power specifications become degraded at one of the entry ports, the device automatically switches to another entry port without interrupting the power supply.

RCNTEC’s smart development involves protection from a short circuit. In the event of a short circuit in one of the connected devices, the RPCM automatically cuts power to just the device that had the short, preventing both the powering off of other hardware connected to the RPCM, as well as everything else connected to that electric bus.

Because there are electrical power meters at each individual port, the RPCM makes it possible to effectively measure electrical power and for commercial Data Сenters to offer customers lower prices on colocation as soon as the customer buys the first unit.
