Canara Announces Insight+for Batteries, the First All-Inclusive Predictive Monitoring Service for Data Centers

Subscription-based model for monitoring and managing backup-power infrastructure eliminates upfront hardware costs

ATLANTA – April 12, 2016 - Canara, the trusted leader in critical power analytics and facility management services, today announced the launch of Canara Insight+ for Batteries, the first-ever all-inclusive predictive monitoring service for mission critical facilities. The subscription-based solution bundles monitoring hardware, hardware replacement, and Canara’s predictive monitoring service to provide a complete solution. Data center operators that embrace this model can simplify their operations and realize cost savings of up to 50 percent.

“Canara Insight+ for Batteries is fundamentally changing the business of battery asset management by replacing upfront capital and costly hardware maintenance with a subscription-based, all-inclusive service,” said Tom Mertz, CEO of Canara. “The bundled model not only includes integrated monitoring hardware and an online portal, but also an expert power analysts to interpret performance data to predict and prevent failures, prolong asset life, and ensure uptime.”

Historically, monitoring and managing backup-power systems in a data center environment involved substantial upfront capital, unplanned maintenance expenses, costly personnel training and time-consuming reporting. Unlike the traditional “risk and react” approach, Canara’s new end-to-end service embraces a “predict and prevent” model through providing and managing every aspect of battery asset management. As a result, facility managers are empowered to focus on business priorities instead of the headaches of reviewing and analyzing performance data.

Canara Insight+ for Batteries’ groundbreaking hardware, Canara Quadrant Controller, gathers the same performance data with 80 percent less battery connections, resulting in a smaller hardware footprint and fewer points of failure than the traditional monitoring infrastructure. In addition, implementation and replacement is quick and non-intrusive.

Canara’s predictive and monitoring analytics as a service not only removes upfront capital, but provides convenient visibility into current performance, extends battery life, protects systems from thermal runaway and reduces maintenance costs.

“By gathering core data in a facility, we can help mission critical facilities improve energy and operational efficiencies and ensure availability,” said Brian Hanking, chief technology officer at Canara. “Our as-a-service model helps facility managers navigate the procurement, install, commissioning and replacement of their critical power infrastructure.”
