“Data Centre Infrastructure Management” is divided into several categories: monitoring, automation, planning, management and implementation.
The first category deals with monitoring and automation of the IT room and the facility’s power, environmental control and security. It helps ensure that the data centre operates as designed and provides user-configurable thresholds for alarms on physical devices, including heat, ventilation and air conditioning. It also reports real-time, average and peak energy use, and measures the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).
The planning and deployment software focuses on helping IT managers streamline data centre changes, deploy new equipment for maximum efficiency, and track assets.
It supports what-if scenarios to help with planning and reduce total cost of ownership.
