Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is quite a broad term that integrates IT and Facility Management concepts that, in brief, aim to monitor, manage and control data center utilisation and energy consumption of all data center related equipment.
As a DCIM software supplier, our goal is to provide users with a holistic view of their data center’s performance so that floor space, equipment and energy are used as efficiently as possible.
Perf-IT have built a DCIM solution based on ICONICS GENESIS64 software suite.
Fully integrate your existing BMS application from any provider and start adding additional analytics and functionality to your system with DCIM software.
There's no longer a need to separate displays for fire detection, leak detection, door entrance etc. - integrate all of this data into one central overview.
A huge influencer on your datacenter efficiency is the performance of your cooling. If integrated, DCIM software combines the information from your cooling and other infrastructure which can be used for manual or automatic optimisation and control.
DCIM can be integrated with almost every Cooling Management System and also offers the possibility to connect directly to remote I/O, industrial control units and protocol drive devices via BACNet, SNMP, Modbus and others.
Get a clear view of your electrical infrastructure, where power is measured, UPS systems are monitored and all trips are visualised into the system and be sure that all power consumption in invoiced to the right customers.
The EMS information is used for:
Power consumption invoicing
Calculating your performance
Controlling your capacity on both electrical and cooling. By combining your contract information and comparing it to the actual use and overbooking. Gives you control over your datacenter
And of course all devices regardless brand or type can be connected to our DCIM software.
Use your power data and asset-data for real-time capacity calculations. When expanding your datacenter, when will your UPS, EPG or Busbar reach the limit?
With capacity monitoring you are able to balance the energy in your datacenter and even postpone future investments.
By creating dashboards you will get a quick look into your datacenter without moving through all kinds of displays, you even may integrate map structures to get an overview of all datacenter’s all over the country.
The Performance and capacity dashboards of DCIM service as a business intelligence representation of your datacenter infrastructure. Our predefined (GreenGrid based) dashboards provide real-time metrics like PUE, EUE, EER, CUE and WUE.
This helps datacenter operations to:
Increase your energy efficiency
Reduce your Electrical and Carbon footprint
Comply with governmental legislation
Make a combination of all the assets that are available in the system and combine them into one single graphic. Any device, regardless of its brand or protocol can be connected to DCIM’s.
Some examples are:
Power measurements or Power analysers
Temperature and humidity sensors
Racks (PDU's in the racks on general or outlet level, temperatures and humidity)
By using several graphical backgrounds you can switch between tiles, simple graphical layout, only walls, doors etc.
If you have autocad, Revit, 3DMax graphics, you can use our 3D visualisation capabilities
Bring all your alarms to one platform that gives you the flexibility to see alarms and their correlation in one dashboard. Escalate on these alarms and see if people respond in a proper timeframe.
Within a datacentre, all kind of equipment generates alarms. Many of them can escalate their alarms. If you use Perf-IT, your alarms will be centralized and you can perform the alarm escalation from one point. Alarms can be escalated using email, SMS, Pager and Skype. Sms or HTML5 mobile technology can be used for remote alarm acknowledgment. Using alarm groups you can:
Escalate through users and user groups
Set speed of escalation based on priority
Log all the events
DCIM is capable of suppressing alarms on assets or groups of assets. During maintenance operations, the manager can decide to lower the priority of the alarm, to designate the alarms to a maintenance engineer or even disable the alarms completely. Knowing that the alarm will only be disabled during a certain amount of time, without losing alarms for months.
