FNT DC Capacity Management helps make sense of all the information flowing through the various systems that comprise the data center. With a clear view of current capacity status and forecasted requirements, management can determine the need for and prioritize investments in alternatives such as colocation, public cloud and managed hosting services, as well as operational considerations.
FNT Data Center Management covers documentation, planning, and management of all data center resources and facilities throughout their entire lifecycle. The solution offers a comprehensive range of display and evaluation options for all aspects of your data center. The solution provides an instant overview of all relevant information on footprints, height units, weights, power consumption and cooling data - even across multiple data centers. It also enables management of all assets through a single, dynamically updated repository integrated with key systems. As a result, data centers not only have the information and tools to support the existing environment but are also able to leverage technologies of the future for digital transformation today.
FNT DC Connectivity Management solution provides the information and tools to manage connectivity requests and operations. Whether a physical cable connection or logical connectivity service (such as Ethernet or VPN), all connections go through the same phases: planning, rollout out, implementation and operation.

The nerve pathways of digital transformation
Few aspects of digital infrastructure are as undervalued as network cabling – yet few are as critical to the process. Cabling provides the essential foundation for all forms of connectivity, data communication, and digital value creation. At the same time, the cables themselves are largely invisible, with more and more IT services being consumed from the cloud via WLAN. The highly qualified teams that provide and operate the cabling also work behind the scenes. This is especially true of the cabling in data centers, which is often regarded as a black box.
Actions data center and network operators can take today for a more environmental-friendly tomorrow
Businesses concerned about sustainability are taking stock of their current situation, identifying areas to target for improvement, and formulating plans for how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. There are many strategies that can be used, and not all of them are obvious. This paper is an enlightening look at a number of different actions businesses can take to minimize the impact they are having on the environment.
Guide to understanding Top-Down DCIM and why it matters
Data centers are essential for the success of any modern business. Accordingly, their performance and availability are increasingly moving up the agenda of customers and senior management alike. But it is no longer enough to simply use space, power, and cooling as metrics. Given digital transformation and the central role of IT in an organization’s ability to deliver, data centers need to provide maximum support for business transactions. Traditional tools for data center infrastructure management (DCIM) have reached their limits. What is needed are integrated tools, standards, and data models that enable seamless, efficient management of IT infrastructure from top to bottom. This white paper looks at the differences between tool generations, what characterizes modern DCIM solutions, and why managing isolated solutions soon runs up against functional limits. The core question is: How can I future-proof my data center?
How to leverage the full potential of management tools and process with smart integration
In this white paper, we’ll discuss how to drive growth and automate processes through smart integration. Combining a data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution with other business-critical systems will simplify and unify operational processes and allow you to achieve high-caliber data center management.
Taking data center automation to new levels with a combined FNT/ABB solution
Managing data centers is complicated. It involves multiple tools, a combination of manual and automated processes that aren’t always in sync, and data that isn’t always available when needed. A single solution simply cannot handle the complexity of a modern data center. Integrating best-in-class tools is the key to increasing efficiency and productivity across all departments. It makes sure all are working together in an integrated way and not operating in silos. Read our new white paper to learn how FNT together with ABB have made data center management more efficient just by working together.
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.
