Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today introduced StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.4, which provides new capabilities and access to actionable intelligence for an ideal balance of high availability and peak efficiency throughout the data centre life cycle.
As part of Schneider Electric’s data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) solution, StruxureWare for Data Centers, StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.4 will optimise colocation management, power monitoring and network management helping data centre and facility managers free up power capacity, right-size physical infrastructure and integrate with existing DCIM systems, thereby reducing capital and operational expenses.
A key feature to optimise colocation management includes paired receptacles to provide an overview of complete power redundancy at the cage or rack level, allowing facility and data centre managers to simulate the impact of a failure and accurately display the failover load for each receptacle. StruxureWare Data Center Operation v7.4 also features an improved cage and rack-based power overview with the ability to display sold, measured and estimated power for black box environments, as well as accurate tenant billing, enhanced tenant data, and improved cage drawings. All of these features can help colocation facilities accurately bill tenants, determine available leasing space and avoid overspending on capital and operational expenses.
