RiMatrix Next Generation (NG)

27 August 2021

RiMatrix Next Generation (NG) is described as a “ground-breaking new modular system for installing data centres flexibly, reliably and fast”.

Based on an open-platform architecture, RiMatrix NG means customised solutions, delivering future-proofed IT scenarios, can be implemented anywhere in the world. These include single rack or container solutions, centralised data centres, distributed edge data centres or highly scaled co-location, as well as cloud and hyperscale data centres.

RiMatrix NGm, Rittal reckons, is the first platform that supports OCP direct current technology in standard environments.

Change is a constant across today’s IT infrastructure, but digital transformation is creating innovation at a pace that has never been seen before and the pace will almost certainly continue to accelerate. This requires both rapid responses and long-term investment in data centres which are flexible enough to meet a myriad of new challenges.

Rittal says it has responded with its new RiMatrix Next Generation (NG) IT infrastructure platform.

“Right from the initial design phase, we thought ahead in terms of adapting to diverse and constantly evolving requirements when we were developing the open platform,” says Uwe Scharf, managing director business units and marketing at Rittal. “Our customers have to adapt their IT infrastructures to developments faster than ever before to ensure business-relevant products and services can be continually created at the highest possible speed and without faults. “Our aim is to support them as their partner for the future.”
