Data Center Infrastructure Management Leader Modius Launches New Version of Facilities Measurement and Monitoring Platform at Data Center World

OpenData v3.4’s improved data visualization identifies data center energy inefficiencies in both on-premise and cloud-based implementations

 

LAS VEGAS – October 4th, 2010 - Modius Inc., the leading provider of real-time monitoring solutions for data center mission-critical infrastructure, today announced enhancements to its OpenData product line with the launch of OpenData® v3.4.

OpenData v3.4 introduces several important features, including:

  • Visual Alarm Correlation – Modius has developed a new alarm visualization tool that allows users to quickly compare alarm timing across different categories of data-center equipment to more easily perform root-cause analysis and management.
  • Dynamic Heat Map Reporting – Modius has added a new reporting feature that allows users to visually assess variation in performance data across different categories of equipment to easily identify outliers and trouble spots in equipment, rack or site-level performance.
  • Integrated Reporting Framework – OpenData v3.4 introduces an integrated framework that allows all major OpenData reports types (line & bar charts, dashboards & pie charts, alarm visualization, and heat mapping) to be available from a single tab.
  • New Rack Management Dashboards – Based on recent customer field work, Modius has developed new dashboards that give users specific insight into several rack-level management issues, including which racks have available capacity for new servers, which racks have most variable energy consumption, and which racks have highest or lowest average operating temperature.

“Time and time again, leading analysts from respected organizations such as Gartner and The 451 Group have stated that the key step to running an efficient data center is measurement,” said Craig Compiano, CEO of Modius. “Modius’ ability to unify both facilities and IT data makes it easier for data center managers to view trouble spots and take immediate action - as well as break down barriers between the IT and facilities department.”

From a single console, Modius’ OpenData platform displays in real-time comprehensive power and environmental intelligence from a distributed network of facilities - including data centers, server closets, call centers and mechanical yards. Using these metrics, data center leaders have the ability to anticipate and plan for numerous data center events that will enable them to reduce data center energy consumption. The system can be installed either locally within the enterprise network or remotely with the database and server application hosted in a cloud-based configuration for easier service management.

Modius will provide attendees of Data Center World with a live demonstration of OpenData v3.4 using data from multi-site data centers. The demo can be viewed at booth #528.

Last month, Modius and Nimsoft announced a partnership to provide enterprises with integrated management of IT infrastructure and facilities. The partnership will allow unified monitoring of IT infrastructure and facilities, giving enterprises shared visibility into their IT power and cooling equipment.
