(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – iTRACS Corporation, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions driving efficiency and strategic value in the data center, today announced a new level of automation, ease-of-use, and time-to-value in its Converged Physical Infrastructure Management™ (CPIM™) software portfolio.
The release of CPIM™ iCDC™ v2.4.1 offers iTRACS customers a range of enhanced DCIM capabilities, including more robust intelligent capacity planning, space management, and dynamic modeling features to help accelerate knowledge-based decision-making and change management in today’s most complex infrastructure environments. This latest release helps users generate even faster time-to-value from their physical infrastructure, simplify the adoption and ongoing maintenance of their DCIM solution, optimize the accuracy of their data center models without any manual intervention, and generate a higher continuous return on their DCIM investment.
“This release extends the capabilities of the CPIM™ portfolio as it creates proven, continuous business value for our customers,” said Elizabeth Given, President and CEO of iTRACS. “Customers will see quantifiable improvements in how efficiently they can manage the complex interrelationships between assets, conduct moves, adds, and changes, and commission assets. The new automated features will help customers accelerate the management of their physical infrastructure, particularly in the key areas of capacity planning and space management, where automation means faster time-to-deployment and faster time-to-value.”
Enhanced Capacity Planning: CPIM™ iCDC™ v2.4.1 offers true row-based capacity and white space management, automatically tracking and reserving space at the cabinet level. CPIM™ automatically reviews all power and network connectivity, identifies actual available row space, and confirms the ideal physical space for the new assets – right down to the millimeter. This makes rack-and-roll deployments easier than ever and allows users to “design” the growing density of the data center vs. adding assets ad-hoc. CPIM™ also automates the placement of vertical-mount power strips, turning a manual, unmanaged placement process into an automated, managed one. Customers can optimize the deployment of both rack-mounted and zero-U (not rack mounted) devices with full confidence that the model will be true-to-life.
Dynamic Modeling: CPIM™ iCDC™ v2.4.1 automates and accelerates the build-out of the data center model by linking operational asset databases with the iTRACS system, using the iTRACS open web service platform to continuously synchronize data between the environments. CPIM™ automatically updates the DCIM asset model, eliminating the delays and potential human errors associated with manual data entry. Customers with asset repositories can avoid the heavy lifting of model build-out, speeding the adoption and continuous enablement of their DCIM investment. They can also integrate multiple asset sets into the model, seamlessly maintaining a 100% accurate global data set without human intervention. It’s fast, easy, and error-free.
