Helping Involta manage power in eight data centers for hundreds of clients

Co-location companies need the ability to track power usage at the cabinet level to accurately bill customers, meet their SLAs, and plan for growth. Involta, a rapidly growing multi-tenant data center services provider, wanted one monitoring solution that could meet the needs of a number of different facilities with different power configurations. Packet Power delivered a solution that installed quickly, integrated seamlessly and provides value to Involta and Involta’s clients.
