January 31, 2014 - Geist announced the launch of version 4 of Environet™ its customisable DCiM solution. The latest software release incorporates new asset management tools that enable tracking of rack equipment in the data centre.
The addition of the asset management functionality means the Environet solution spans across the traditional IT and facilities DCiM solutions. This enables users to visualise and associate rack assets with real-time power usage data to monitor energy consumption at the circuit and rack level. The combination of asset data with real-time power and environmental monitoring allows cabinets to be loaded to the maximum capacity supported by the data centre infrastructure.
“With the latest enhancements to Environet, we have delivered a true DCiM solution in real-time, to bridge the gap that has existed between IT–based asset management solutions and facility based real-time monitoring.” stated Matt Lane, President of Geist DCiM.
Marek Stuczynski, Geist DCiM International Business Development Manager added: “This new functionality assists IT and data centre managers with capacity planning; a significant issue for them. In a recent Gartner survey*, 46% of respondents cited capacity planning as the primary reason for deploying a DCiM solution. The ability to visualise and understand capacity will take away a major headache and improve efficiency within the data centre. We believe these enhancements position Environet as a leading DCiM solution in the market.”
