Schneider Electric introduced version 7.4 of its StruxureWare Data Center Operation.
As part of Schneider’s data center infrastructure management (DCIM), v7.4 will optimize colocation management, power monitoring and network management helping data center and facility managers free up power capacity, right-size physical infrastructure and integrate with existing DCIM systems.
A key feature to optimize colocation management includes paired receptacles to provide an overview of complete power redundancy at the cage or rack level, allowing facility and data center managers to simulate the impact of a failure and display the failover load for each receptacle. The 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.
To further bridge the gap between IT and facilities, v7.4 enables data center managers to manage capacity and conduct impact analysis down to the breaker level, providing added understanding of the power chain and the ability to reduce stranded capacity.
