Operations

Multi-site analysis of energy, operations, and assets. Managers can aggregate, analyze, and report on financial and operational data from a single site or company-wide.


 
StruxureWare Data Center Operation enables vendor-agnostic inventory management with real-time device failures and data shown within your data center physical layout, as well as recommendations on how to resolve issues. A location-based drill-down view provides a structured overview of data center locations, from a global to local view down to single assets. The Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) calculator supplies information on daily utilization of energy. For instant updates on the go Data Center Operation: Mobile provides access to StruxureWare Data Center Operation information via handheld. StruxureWare Data Center Operation is available as an Enterprise or a Co-location base application. The Co-location application provides additional space and cage management, integrated tenant billing and reporting capabilities

Data Center Operation: Capacity predicts the optimal location for physical infrastructure and rack-based IT equipment based on the availability and requirements of physical infrastructure capacity; and user defined requirements such as redundancy, network and business use grouping. It reduces stranded capacity through optimized use of the physical infrastructure and avoids unplanned downtime. With its sophisticated simulation based on live data, Data Center Operation: Capacity proactively analyzes the impact of changes before they occur, enabling informed decision making and planning, ensuring that your physical infrastructure provides the required capacity for current and future needs..

Data Center Operation: Energy Efficiency analysis software provides current and historical Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) values, enabling a fact-based understanding of how much power is devoted to driving the installed IT-equipment compared with the total facility consumption. It provides a detailed insight into how effectively energy is utilized down to subsystem level, as well as an understanding of how to improve energy efficiency and power conservation. Subsystem data can either be measured or estimated, also allowing customers with few power meters to benefit from the application. The web-based dashboard view includes efficiency data on current and historical PUE, as well as detailed subsystem cost analysis. Data Center Operation: Energy Efficiency is available via StruxureWare Data Center Operation, which enables integrations with StruxureWare Data Center Expert and 3rd party enterprise systems.

Data Center Operation: IT Optimize increases utilization of infrastructure and IT assets through accurate, detailed power consumption profile of data centers, server by server and rack by rack. IT Optimize monitors IT asset utilization and power consumption to help reduce costs associated with over-provisioning, underutilization, and imbalanced power and cooling throughout the data center. Business critical analytics tie IT costs to business groups for chargeback, provide critical information for build vs. buy decisions and track capacity at the rack, row and room level. At the core of IT Optimize is the GenomeTM library, which continually discovers and monitors individual IT components and collects information to keep track of server specific information. The information forms the building blocks for understanding IT energy consumption and how it impacts the business.

Data Center Operation: Change is an applications management software that enables operators to gain control over the data center environment by implementing organized moves, adds, and change work processes, significantly reducing the risk for inadvertent downtime. With its automated workflow system, operators can assign work orders, reserve space, track status, and extract an audit trail for complete visibility and history into the change lifecycle. The optional Data Center Operation: Mobile provides you with your operational changes while on the data center floor, enables barcode scanning and ensures data integrity, as well as improved operational efficiency.

Data Center Operation: Cooling Optimize continuously optimizes airflow in the data center facility, delivering improved reliability and availability. Cooling Optimize is a closed-loop system that reacts to real-time data, automatically identifies and eliminates hot spots and helps diagnose potential facility risks. The application balances the need for cooling with the lowest possible energy expenditure, delivering immediate cost savings and the right amount of cooling within the data center. The application provides facility managers with control over desired temperatures and visibility into thermal conditions. It employs intelligent software which constantly adjusts cooling as environmental conditions change. This real-time response to temperature-affecting events, such as equipment moves, upgrades or IT load swings, stabilizes air flow and solves the complex puzzle of cooling resource allocation.

Data Center Operation: Server Access is a software only application that provides full lifecycle access to the server Operating System (OS) and the Base Management Card (BMC) for controlling multiple IT devices from a single console via remote management. Power cycling enables users to remotely access servers when they are offline, and power up/down or restart servers, even when the server OS is down. Server Access enables both in-band and out-of-band access to servers. Access the BIOS (basic input/output system) or the BMC directly from the DCIM software to solve hardware problems preventing a server from booting normally.
