StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.2 unveiled
Schneider Electric has introduced StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.2, Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software that identifies underutilized and comatose servers enabling the optimization of IT equipment within the data center. Updates to the Operation platform include the addition of IT Power Control, powered by Intel Data Center Manager (DCM), and the inclusion of the Cisco UCS Manager Plug-in.
"Businesses are increasingly looking to the data center for opportunities for optimization, which can be achieved through right-sizing and consolidating the physical infrastructure and optimizing the IT layer. StruxureWare Data Center Operation version 7.2 provides crucial information for making key decisions on how to run data centers more efficiently. The platform provides data center managers with the ability to operate, monitor, analyze and optimize the energy usage of a data center all the way down to the server and CPU levels, gaining significant CapEX and OpEx savings and extending the data center life cycle in the process," said Soeren Brogaard Jensen, Vice-President, Solution Software, Schneider Electric.
StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.2 helps customers optimize the IT layer of the data center by focussing on actual IT power consumption. The platform also provides an instant report on top power consumers, presenting data center managers with a list of servers that are likely candidates for upgrades, load sharing or retirement, as well as a report on underutilized and non-utilized servers.
