OpenData – What It Does

Modius OpenData Editions

Get started with the Modius OpenData solution that's right for you:

OpenData Enterprise Edition - Do you have more than one data center to manage?  Then the Modius OpenData Enterprise Edition provides real-time data collection for data center assets, processes and events for every data center in your estate.  Our Enterprise Edition provides multiple site monitoring and decision support that enables unified visibility and better control over the critical systems in your data centers, including power, cooling and space. With OpenData Enterprise Edition, you can optimize capacity and increase efficiencies across your entire data center operations whether assets are being monitored from across the hall or across the world.

OpenData Standard Edition - For single data centers, the OpenData Standard edition provides all the data collection capabilities, device monitoring, and reporting functionality of the Enterprise edition, but limits this information to a single site.  This provides a low cost DCIM solution that simplifies the complexity of managing the diverse power and cooling equipment and IT assets in the data center. The “download and go” software provides a simplified, federated view of real-time performance data and alarms for all networked assets in your data center with installation and setup taking less than 1 hour.

OpenData Architecture

OpenData provides data center managers with a cost-effective, vendor-neutral, and easy-to-integrate DCIM software platform that collects, normalizes and analyzes data from all of the power, cooling and mechanical equipment, including data from environmental management systems. This means data center operators don't have to kludge together various point solutions, or contend with different data formats or increments that add complexity to data center management.

  • Alarm & Event Management - Enables a sensible, unified approach to alarm management by tracking the performance of all monitored, networked infrastructure equipment against a single, configurable threshold policy. Sends alarms via a centralized notification engine.
  • Device-level Analytics and Reporting - Provides analytics and reporting capabilities of the data center's operational status, capacity and efficiency at the device- and network-level.
  • Rack Analytics & Management - Enables rack-level power and capacity information to identify stranded capacity or problems with redundancy.
  • Cooling Analysis & Automation - Track granular cooling performance data and put in place automations that improve efficiency.


OpenData interoperates with most network equipment through its support of the essential communications protocols, including SNMP, Modbus, BACnet and wireless. This enables OpenData to capture equipment performance data from all major device categories from any equipment vendor. For equipment not accessible on the network, Modius provides a serial-to-network gateway (i.e., a data collector) to ensure that all equipment in the data center in fully monitored. OpenData also captures data from building and environmental management systems, thus enabling data center managers to leverage legacy systems.
