Canara, a provider of monitoring, management and predictive analytics for backup power systems, has rebranded from IntelliBatt and launched a next generation suite of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) products aimed at sectors beyond the data center, including renewable energy, telecommunications, transportation and the grid.
Canara aims to shift from battery monitoring to active power asset management through predictive analytics, branch circuit monitoring and cloud-based multi-facility management. New Canara additions include:
- Available in a Lite or Pro series, Canara Branch Circuit Monitoring enhances visibility into the power infrastructure, enabling load-based cost allocation and improved capacity planning.
- Canara’s cloud-based power infrastructure monitoring and management platform allows operators to view site-specific, regional and executive reports, based on analysis of data collected on UPS, batteries, power distribution and temperatures. The new monitoring portal was designed in collaboration with Canara’s customer base.
The launch of the new brand and product suite caps off a series of milestones achieved by Canara over the past 12 months. In July of 2012, the company appointed former Rackable Systems CEO Tom Barton as a co-chief executive. Together with co-CEO Todd Ford, Barton helped Canara close a $22 million round of financing led by Columbia Capital, with participation from CBC Capital and private investors. The company has also seen customer and partner wins including Cologix, Digital Realty Trust, Computer Sciences Corporation and Savvis.
