With rising energy prices and growing complexity in today’s data centers, your customers need a better way to optimize costs and efficiency. Now, there’s an energy-saving solution that makes it easy, enabling proactive planning, monitoring, and management of power, cooling, space, and inventory throughout the data center life cycle.
The right data in the right hands, at the right time
StruxureWare™ for Data Centers software is a comprehensive suite of modular, integrated, vendor-neutral data center infrastructure management (DCIM) applications that deliver total visibility across the data center, providing historical and real-time data and reporting.
The software takes the guesswork out of long-term capacity and resource planning with valid, actionable information that customers can use to identify capacity limitations and availability. Through this single, clear view of the data centre, it’s much easier to predict future infrastructure needs and manage IT configuration changes as needed.
Users can adjust power, cooling, and space to accommodate new equipment and redesign layout, avoiding downtime from overloads or overheating and preventing unnecessary build-outs or upgrades. This makes it possible to cut costs and boost efficiency — from server level to enterprise level — for real savings.
