DATA CENTER INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT (DCIM)
The objective is to improve system and application reliability and
reduce data center operational expenses and by providing a broad set of features used across multiple roles within the data center environment.
To be considered a true, enterprise class DCIM solution the software product must
provide a broad set of features that are able to scale across multiple sites and geographies.
Features must include functionality related to Asset Modelling, Asset Management, Native Performance Monitoring, Alarming with Notifications and Third Party Data Source Integration.
Integrated Asset Management
iCE365 Visual Data Center provides a software platform which enables customers to
manage assets, model facilities, monitor IT and Facility equipment and manage
workflow while scaling to multiple facilities in different geographies with tens or
thousands of devices and data points. Users can visualize their data center assets
using a desktop client, web interface or mobile platform.
3D Rendering of Locations
Comprehensive 3D visualization on the entire physical infrastructure. Thousands of high definition 3D graphics allow a virtual fly-through the data center.
Capacity planning and forecasting against critical infrastructure including space, power, cooling and cable connections.
Modelling and Simulation
Model moves, adds and changes prior to deployment. Take the risk out of impacts prior to deployment.
Generate work orders and tickets; assign tasks and track process performance.
Power, Network and Fiber connections can be created between devices to easily detect impact analysis and root cause of failures.
Reports & Dashboards
KPI tracking, trending and predictive analysis.
Advanced power monitoring and dashboard management through the entire power chain from chip-set to the utility; Power Strips, PDU, RPP, UPS, ATS, Generators.
Monitor temperature and humidity from existing sensors and systems to prevent overheating of IT racks.
IP Camera Management
Centralize IP Camera views across multiple locations. Capture motion alarms and correlate physical access control.
Complete inventory of all Data Center Assets including all device properties and software.
Alarm management, end-to-end, of all Mechanical, Electrical, and Power equipment combined with the discovery and monitoring of IT servers, switches, routers, and (VM) virtual machines.
