Modius OpenData DCIM Solution

Critical <Better> Decisions Require Accurate Data!

At Modius, we believe that before you can make intelligent management decisions, you need to have real data on the operational state of your data center, otherwise, you are just guessing that the change you are about to make won’t be catastrophic.  Some DCIM vendors use de-rated plate values for power capacity measurements, and calculate available cooling capacity based on theoretical models, but at Modius, we don’t think that’s good enough, especially when it’s your job to know exactly how much capacity is available - and the technology is available today!.
That is why we developed OpenData, an “open”, highly scalable software platform for collecting the unstructured “big data” that comes from all the different makes and models of data center assets, processes, and activities as they are generated in real-time. Real-time data collection is the core foundation for implementing a successful DCIM solution, because real data makes for informed decisions, not sloppy guesswork.  At Modius, we make it our business to provide you with the data you need to make better decisions and better manage availability, capacity, and efficiency across your entire data center estate.
OpenData DCIM software solutions by Modius are completely vendor neutral and highly scalable with no coding required to add new devices across multiple sites. OpenData's ease-of-use and flexibility are unprecedented: Users can easily configure their own dashboards and reports with the power of advanced OpenData Analytics.
Modius provides data center infrastructure management solutions for the following DCIM issues:

Operational Intelligence for Data Centers

We have all heard of Business Intelligence and how this information can transform the decision making processes for companies that have invested in this technology.  As a data center or facility manager, you need Operational Intelligence to better manage the complexities of the heterogeneous mix of infrastructure found in today’s data centers.

OpenData’s next-generation performance analytics are derived from its real-time monitoring of resources, processes and activities as they are executed within the data center. The software collects, normalizes and analyzes data from all of the power, cooling and mechanical equipment—from racks to CRACs—including data from environmental management systems. The operational intelligence it provides helps IT, data center and facility managers work together to improve decision making, cut costs and identify ways to improve infrastructure throughput and capacity.

Modius OpenData solutions deliver the operational intelligence required to better manage today's sustainable data center, and answer these important operational questions:

  • What is my current capacity for power, cooling and space?
  • Based on historical trends, how much power, cooling, space and time do I have left?
  • If this circuit fails, do I have enough capacity on the redundant circuit to continue operation without interruption?
  • Can I add these servers without blowing the circuit breaker in this rack?
