Data Center Infrastructure Management Software (DCIM)
FNT's Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution is a central resource management and optimization software for the data center. It covers documentation, planning, and management of all data center resources and facilities throughout their entire lifecycle. Businesses that use our DCIM software are able to streamline processes and optimize utilization of building infrastructure (power, cooling, floorspace), IT infrastructure (networks, servers, storage), connectivity (cables, patches) and services (software, applications).
Our DCIM solution provides consistent, up-to-date, and easily accessible data that is vital for informed decisions on deployment of data center infrastructure resources and capacities. It is a field-tested solution based on the powerful FNT Command Platform that delivers a comprehensive and integrated view of all data center resources. From recording and monitoring live power consumption and temperature values to planning the entire data center, our DCIM software will keep your data center operating with maximum efficiency.
Advantages of Our DCIM Solution
Highlights of our DCIM software
Footprints, or graphical representations of entire data centers or zones within them, help to better understand the real situation in a data center. Racks, floor tiles, cable trays and climate zones, etc. can be placed and arranged. Use a footprint to store a floor plan of the room as a background image and lay a grid of floor tiles on top of the floor plan. Additional grids can be defined individually for each footprint.
Utilization diagrams provide information on all available reserves by room or data center. Easily create diagrams showing usage of air conditioning, power, and floor space. In the floor space view, create pie charts displaying the relative percentages for different types of space: occupied with device, unoccupied, maneuvering, traffic, and blocked.
Real estate documentation of a data center is structured hierarchically, starting with the property and getting increasingly granular with the campus, building, floor, and room. The structure and number of zones can be configured as needed, and zones can be linked within or between hierarchical layers.
Encompasses all cabling, including back bone and patching inside the data center and between sites. Manage all patches (non-fixed cabling) and patch panels for copper and fiber cabling. Various display options show connections, including the graphical view inside cabinets. Signal tracing allows fast analysis and tracing across the entire signal chain from any selected port. All devices and cables on the physical layer – whether in actual or planned state - are displayed schematically in the form of a block diagram.
Record every change in the database throughout the entire lifecycle of an object. A History function documents a range of parameters for every CI, such as location, attributes, links, users, and type of change. This information can be evaluated for one or more CIs using comprehensive reporting functionality.
Plan and manage power distributor systems, consisting of power distributors with the associated power buses and rails. Fuses are placed in the outgoing lines on the respective power rails and connected graphically with the corresponding terminal devices.
Graphic representation of the rack enhanced with a photorealistic imagery, 2 and 3D representations of entire rooms, and a 3D footprint view. These powerful views provide facility managers with a fast and comprehensive overview of current and planned conditions within the data center.
