  • Predictive Trending and Analysis – Modius has developed a new series of reports, dashboards and alarms that provide insight into the remaining power and cooling in the data center.  This analysis accurately predicts the time remaining before expenditures must be made to increase capacity.
  • Impact Analysis – OpenData v3.7 BI for Co-location & Cloud Operations also provides the ability to accurately assess the risk to client’s equipment and identify potential service level violations during unplanned outages.

”Data center operators offering co-location and cloud services require a unique set of operational monitors and controls to help them maximize their return on investment,” said Craig Compiano, CEO of Modius. “Modius’ ability to offer these data centers a specific set of analytics to manage their co-location and cloud services clients will help them make the right decisions to directly improve their profitability.
