DCIM Software

Manage your data center efficiently.

Data Center Infrastructure Management Software

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).

Modern infrastructures are morphing into a complex mixture of hybrid resources. While new tools are needed to manage these intricate hybrid digital infrastructures, DCIM remains a core capability that will always be required.

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

A complete overview of the entire system landscape

A single system of record for all data center physical inventory, IT assets, and network resources that delivers full transparency into all system resources. All data is stored in an integrated data model that exposes it to planning processes and makes it available for analysis and reporting. Access to this data enables faster impact analysis, reduced fault repair times and reduces operating costs.

Optimize capacities and resource usage

Enhance space, power, and cooling for on-premise, edge locations, colocation space, and distributed IT/network rooms. Know what is being used and where to reclaim lost capacity and avoid stranded capacities.

Reduce MAC processes and track all changes

Gain access to comprehensive information relating to daily data center processes. Whether managing a live data center, consolidating multiple data centers, or setting up a new one, detailed space and capacity planning must be performed before any changes can be made. FNT supports managing all standard move, add, and changes for IT and facility assets.

Highlights of our DCIM software

Floor Space Management

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.

Capacity Management

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.

Zone Management

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.

Cable and Patch Management

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.

Lifecycle and Object Management

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.

Power Management

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.

Rack Elevation Management

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.

White Paper

The Future of DCIM

The pandemic has heightened the need for digital transformation and is accelerating its mainstream adoption to support remote workforces, increased bandwidth, IoT, and virtualization. To ensure success in the aftermath of COVID-19 and remain competitive in a digital world, businesses must also understand how infrastructure management is evolving. In this white paper, we’ll discuss why today’s modern data centers need hybrid digital infrastructure management for greater visibility into digital infrastructure and to support increased mobility.

White Paper

Data Centers on the Edge

Current predictions by various experts indicate a rapid growth of edge computing. Many companies have now recognized the advantages of the edge and are in various stages of implementing their own edge strategies. This white paper discusses how organizations can keep track of and efficiently manage their geographically dispersed sites.

Success Story

Federal Employment Agency

The IT system house of the Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit, BA) is responsible for the operation of fail-safe data centers at the headquarters in Nuremberg as well as for the IT infrastructure in the 1,800 real estates. To increase the efficiency of the own organization for the DC planning and administration tasks, the IT system house migrated to the FNT Command resource management solution.
