TSL Products, a producer of broadcast equipment, has acquired AdInfa, developer of the data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) software, InSite.
The acquisition, which was finalised last week, enables TSL Products to add InSite to its growing portfolio of monitoring solutions for the broadcast sector, while also giving the company a strong entrance into the data centre market.
Chris Exelby, managing director, TSL Products, said: “This acquisition is the perfect adjunct for our business, coming at a time of the launch of our new vertical intelligent PDU’s and as we continue to build our range of monitoring solutions for broadcast and look towards new markets. InSite is already well-established with high profile customers including SKY and Cisco; it works out of the box and is very sophisticated in its approach – it offers all the monitoring features that customers have been asking for, as well as many they don’t yet know that they need! We are delighted to add InSite to our portfolio.”
Traditional DCIM solutions are notoriously complex and expensive, requiring large investments both in time and money. InSite has been designed with customer feedback at its heart to provide a solution that real companies want, with smart and well-designed functionality they actually need. It connects with virtually any device including PDUs (including those in TSL Product’s existing range), power meters, and temperature and humidity sensors, and has a user friendly interface that is easy to configure and operate, delivering the information to operators via a sophisticated customisable dashboard.
Financial aspects of the deal remain confidential. The AdInfa management team have left the business by mutual consent, while TSL Products will take on InSite’s technical resource.
