The use of RFID (radio frequency identification) tags to keep track of servers and other IT equipment has hit a milestone this week. RF Code, which specializes in RFID application in the data center, reported that it passed two million asset tracking tags sold worldwide.
“This is a huge milestone for us,” said Mitch Medford, CEO of RF Code. “The speed at which our asset management solutions are being adopted has increased at an unprecedented rate in 2013 while our environmental sensors are trending to take us to three million tags and sensors in the market in just a few months. After deploying RF Code into their data centers, our largest customer calls us their ‘automated infrastructure platform for managing physical assets’.”
RF Code's RFID tags are attached to servers and racks to provide asset tracking, and can also monitor environmental conditions. The company continues to enjoy deep integration with the data center industry and has been building up relationships with Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), power and infrastructure vendors in the sector. It also provides solutions to enterprises like GE Healthcare and other supply chain solutions.
The asset tracking tags help solve regulatory, financial and resource demands faced by today’s critical IT facilities. RF Code provides a one-platform solution that incorporates power, environmental, security and asset management data.
The company also announced a Passive to Active program. The company will offer money back on every passive tag deployed at enterprise companies when they upgrade to an automated, RF Code active RFID solution.
"We have received strong endorsements from Gartner, 451 Research and IDC this year and have established relationships with all of the leading DCIM, power and infrastructure vendors in the data center sector," saidd Richard Jenkins, vice president of marketing and strategic partnerships. “Enterprises are now acting on the potential risk of not having the accurate data we provide and this is reflected in our continual growth.”
