Infotech Lead Asia: Schneider Electric has introduced StruxureWare for Data Centers v2.0, a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software engineered to manage data centers across multiple domains.
To accelerate data center performance, the new DCIM suite offers enterprises with actionable intelligence for an ideal balance of high availability and peak efficiency throughout the entire data center lifecycle.
Schneider Electric has updated the data center suite by adding new applications for monitoring and management support for facility managers and additional power capping capabilities for further control of power consumption at the server level for improved IT management.
StruxureWare Portal for increased visibility into business and data center key performance indicators (KPIs) with customizable views across the various company stakeholders will also benefit data center customers.
Soeren Brogaard Jensen, vice president, Solution Software, Schneider Electric, said: “With StruxureWare for Data Centers v2.0, Schneider Electric is providing a holistic approach to managing the data center by integrating IT, facilities and now the executive suite through the use of DCIM, allowing businesses to make the right decisions based on shared data — helping them make the most of their energy.”
StruxureWare for Data Centers v2.0 is an open, modular, fully scalable and integrated DCIM solution that breaks down the typically siloed information that often prevents a holistic and intelligent view of the mechanical, electrical and IT aspects of center operation.
According to Gartner, the challenge is for companies to find funding for (DCIM) for an existing data center. The reasons revolve around tight budgets and budget ownership.
The company has extended the StruxureWare for Data Centers suite with several applications aimed at providing facility managers with in-depth support.
StruxureWare for Data Centers has also been strengthened on the IT side by enabling Data Center Operators to further control power consumption at the server level through power capping capabilities provided through Intel DCM technology — resulting in reduced OpEx, optimized utilization of existing servers and delayed equipment investment.
