RACKWISE Correlates Real Time Information to Business Services for the Data Center

December 6, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ServicesLas Vegas, NV. – Visual Network Design Inc. (dba Rackwise), the internationally recognized leader in data center management solutions, today announced that it will preview data center intelligence software at the Gartner Data Center Conference, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas NV, December 1st through the 3rd, booth #2.

Software being previewed will demonstrate how infrastructure costs can be analyzed to identify savings opportunities. These infrastructure costs are correlated to the applications and business services they are associated with and the corresponding operational savings are realized.

Dom Lesme, VP and General Manager of Rackwise said, “In the new age of data center management, energy costs matter. The new version of RACKWISE DCM correlates real time information, such as, resource utilization to business services, identifying opportunities to make significant savings, thereby giving companies a competitive advantage”.

The Rackwise philosophy of collecting data directly from the data center environment in real time ensures the greatest accuracy possible for the analytical models. In addition to gathering power consumption at the circuit or outlet level, temperature, humidity, and any SNMP object indentified by the user can be monitored. Detailed graphical trend analysis including moving averages is available for any of the real time monitored objects.

Other new features to be demonstrated are:
– Integrated ad hoc reporting that allows for modification of existing or template reports, or creation of completely new reports by the end user with Microsoft Report Builder, Microsoft Business Intelligence Studio, Business Objects Crystal Reports, or other reporting tools.
– Integration to BMC’s Remedy ARS and Atrium CMDB via the RACKWISE plug-in adaptor provides world class workflow, process management, and asset management.
– Advanced cable management complete with patch schedules, cable pathway, and device cabling reports.
– Monitoring of Virtual Machine status and attributes: CPU utilization, memory, and disk utilization.
– Financial Analysis:
o Data Center capital and operating expenses.
o Customizable Charge Back Reporting based on real time resource consumption, power, space, and CPU utilization by customer, department, or location.
o Business Service Management (BSM), including comparisons of infrastructure costs broken down by department or customer, business service, applications, rack, row, and device, or user defined parameters.
– Continuous calculations of PUE and DCiE are graphically reported as histograms showing the daily, weekly, and monthly trends.
