Rittal’s ‘ground-breaking’ RiMatrix Next Generation

07 December 2020

Rittal has launched RiMatrix Next Generation (NG), described as a ‘ground-breaking’ new modular system for installing data centres flexibly, ‘reliably and fast’.

Based on an open-platform architecture, RiMatrix NG means customised solutions, delivering future-proofed IT scenarios, can be implemented anywhere in the world. These include single rack or container solutions, centralised data centres, distributed edge data centres or highly scaled co-location, as well as cloud and hyperscale data centres.

Rittal also said the RiMatrix NG is the first platform that supports OCP direct current technology in standard environments.

“Right from the initial design phase, we thought ahead in terms of adapting to diverse and constantly evolving requirements when we were developing the open platform,” said Uwe Scharf, managing director business units and marketing at Rittal. “Our customers have to adapt their IT infrastructures to developments faster than ever before to ensure business-relevant products and services can be continually created at the highest possible speed and without faults.

The RiMatrix NG modules cover five functional areas: racks, climate control, power supply and backup, and finally IT monitoring and security. This enables IT managers to create solutions that are tailored to their individual requirements. The number of potential combinations offered by Rittal and its certified partners means that users can both meet their own needs and any stipulated local regulations, wherever they are based across the world. n
