Modius Partners with Nimsoft to Provide MSPs and Enterprises With Integrated Management of IT Infrastructure and Facilities
Leading Provider of Power and Cooling Management Solutions Joins Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance
SAN FRANCISCO – September 8, 2010 - Modius®, the leading provider of real-time facilities monitoring solutions for data center power and cooling, today announced plans to integrate its OpenData Facilities Monitoring Solution with the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS), enabling customers to tightly align the supply of power and cooling to variable computing workloads.
By unifying monitoring of IT infrastructure and facilities, the integration will provide enterprise and MSP customers with shared visibility into their IT infrastructures and their power and cooling equipment. This combination provides customers visibility both at the site level and the rack level. By unifying power & cooling data from Modius with on-board server instrumentation data collected by Nimsoft, the combined solution will allow operators to see unified performance metrics for every rack and zone across the data center. This unified view will enable closer collaboration and planning between IT and Facilities management teams, which is essential for expanding compute capacity, managing increasingly dynamic IT work loads, and reducing power costs with improved energy efficiency.
Modius also announced that it has joined the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance as a Solution Partner.
“Nimsoft is dedicated to providing customers with the most complete management solution set for improving IT service levels while driving down costs and ensuring adaptability to constantly changing business requirements,” said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. “The addition of Modius to the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance helps us fulfill this objective by adding facilities management capabilities to our already extensive portfolio of partner solutions.”
The planned integration will enable customers to access a real-time data feed to all power and cooling equipment in the data center via the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution, which collects data from electrical units and produces a variety of Green Grid Metrics. Using this data, operators can quickly estimate the energy efficiency of their data centers and compare the results against other data centers to determine what improvements or modifications, if any, would be worthwhile.
“Our customers have asked us to integrate with Nimsoft, which already has a particularly broad vision for unified monitoring that encompasses both IT and facilities,” said Craig Compiano, Modius CEO. “We are proud to be a partner in the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance, and we will continue to build our capabilities to help customers better manage the competing demands of data center reliability, energy efficiency, and responsiveness to the business.”
