Network-Critical Physical Infrastructure
InfraStruXure Central provides an efficient way for organizations to manage their company-wide physical infrastructure devices. Available on a range of hardware platforms, InfraStruXure Central acts as a centralized repository for critical power, cooling, and environmental data, as well as surveillance image data. The InfraStruXure Central server is a single database that can be accessed from multiple consoles running on multiple systems, which creates a consolidated view of the physical infrastructure layer. Real-time device monitoring, custom reporting capabilities, private networking, advanced security and instant event notification enable quick assessment and resolution of critical situations. InfraStruXure Central’s extensible platform can be scaled to grow with the business by supporting additional device licenses, while powerful add-on software modules expand the product’s management capabilities.
Balance IT demand with physical infrastructure capabilities. Through intelligent modeling, this sophisticated software provides you with the optimal location for new datacenter equipment. Using actual data on current space, cooling and power utilization from InfraStruXure Central combined with the requirements of new servers and the available physical infrastructure, Capacity Manager demonstrates the impact of planned changes. Reduce unplanned downtime caused by overloaded physical infrastructure through informed decision making. The graphical floor layout and rack front view enable accurate representation of your data center. The result: assurance that your physical infrastructure is providing the redundancy, backup time and availability required. To rapidly deploy these changes as well as align IT equipment redundancy and availability needs with the capabilities of your physical infrastructure, use in conjunction with Change Manager.
Change Manager enables data center operations managers to stay on top of frequent physical equipment changes. The application combines graphical data center room and rack views, physical asset management, a work order system and a handheld mobile application for creating changes on the go. The asset management tool keeps track of device properties and physical equipment location. The work order system allows you to easily juggle changing priorities and track the status of physical asset management tasks such as adding new equipment, moving existing equipment, and decommissioning retired equipment.
