Industry veteran Peter Vancorenland, PhD brings more than 14 years of experience in systems software, wireless sensor technology and IoT to new role Austin, TX – October 26, 2016 – RF Code, a leading SaaS provider of real-time operational intelligence (RTOI) for physical asset lifecycle management and environmental monitoring in data centers, today announced the addition of Peter Vancorenland, PhD to the position of Chief Technology Officer. In his new role, Dr. Vancorenland will be responsible for pioneering the architectures of RF Code’s next generation platforms, including the incorporation of both data analytics and advanced wireless sensor networks. Vancorenland brings a wide variety of software and hardware expertise to his new position at RF Code. He joins the company after a distinguished career at Silicon Labs, where he was most recently Vice President of IoT Engineering. Among his duties in this capacity, Vancorenland led the engineering team for the IoT Business Unit and was responsible for R&D, IoT product development, custom software applications, hardware tools, and customer engineering and support. Vancorenland received his MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium where he worked on RF CMOS semiconductor technologies and advanced how wireless devices are designed today. He also holds 23 patents spanning a variety of technical fields. “RF Code has been at the forefront of full-stack IoT solutions, employing scalable sensor networks, data gathering software, and applications software. It has grown into a credible first-tier supplier to many of the largest data centers in the world today,” said Vancorenland. “The company’s innovative perspective on data center operations and IT has shaped how the industry utilizes real-time automated physical asset management and environmental monitoring technology. I’m excited to join the RF Code team and to help build on the success that RF Code has enjoyed to date.” “Data centers are the backbone of the global economy, powering businesses, organizing communications, and delivering online consumer services. Managing the physical data center from the assets within to their environment in real-time and across the globe requires advanced automation platforms,” said Ed Healy, CEO of RF Code. “Over his career, Peter has been instrumental in developing wireless sensor networks and IoT software solutions across many vertical applications. As RF Code shapes the future of how data centers adopt sensor networks, automation and migration to the Cloud, his experience will be invaluable.” Earlier this year, RF Code announced a company benchmark: over 125,000 data center racks are now under management worldwide through its CenterScape solution. As a result, over one million enterprise IT assets and hundreds of thousands of environmental sensors are being continuously monitored for safety and security while simultaneously offering critical information on how to increase efficiency and reliability in data centers and colocation facilities. 

Subscription Pricing Model Propels RF Code to Over 125,000+ Racks Under Management

on Sep 13, 2016 7:00:00 AM By | RF Code | 0 Comments |
Customers embrace simple per-rack/per-year pricing, reducing operational expenses while increasing data center efficiency. Austin, TX,  September 13, 2016 -- RF Code has announced that over 125,000 data center racks are now under management with CenterScape, the company’s leading asset management and environmental monitoring solution for the data center. Within these racks are well over a million enterprise IT assets and hundreds of thousands of environmental sensors, all being continuously monitored by RF Code’s real-time operational intelligence solution. “As our technology and software has evolved over the years so has the data center. Companies are looking for more insight into their operations and the equipment in their facilities. Organizations know how other business units are performing and the data center should be no different, especially when downtime and reduced availability is so costly to the business,” said Ed Healy, CEO at RF Code. RF Code’s subscription pricing has assisted the company in achieving this landmark figure, as more customers choose to lease software and hardware from RF Code on an annual per-rack basis, eliminating additional maintenance costs and providing additional flexibility. With the launch of CenterScape Cloud earlier this year, RF Code is also able to offer a remote data center monitoring solution for customers that provides the same real-time information as its on-premise service. “We have seen strong interest in our subscription pricing since its introduction, from both smaller businesses who appreciate the ability to pay with available capital and from large global customers who see the advantages of combining CenterScape Cloud and the subscription pricing for added scalability. By eliminating the expense of purchasing sensors outright, organizations are able to realize savings from RF Code’s solutions from day one,” said Ed Healy.

Computer Business Review: How IoT will hit data centres

on May 23, 2016 8:04:05 AM By | RF Code | 0 Comments | Articles
C-level briefing: Two data centre operators predict an IOT storm and warn users to get their set up right now. For several years we've been told that the cloud lives in a data centre. Now it is the turn of IoT. Where else will the massive data workloads in need of real-time processing and crucial security measures to avoid catastrophic cyber attacks reside?  It is accepted that the operational pressure data centres are under will increase as intelligent connected devices produce more data at huge volumes. Storage management, server technology, networks, security, and operational efficiency are being challenged as the IoT kicks in. First the IoT brings with it the need for facilities of different sizes. Size, says Gartner, does matter when it comes to data centres, and smaller edge data centres will be key. We can expect to see the 'standard mothership' data centres continue to exist but the emergence of edge data centres and distribution data centres is only set to accelerate. At the edge these data centres assume an important role, as SQL-based management platforms and analytic tools fail to handle the amount of data that the IoT will deliver. So said Ed Healy, CEO at data centre management company RF Code. Mr Healy believes this is being experienced today and leading providers of IoT management platforms for the data centre are developing solutions to address this.
