A holistic approach to Data Center Infrastructure Management.
In many organizations real-time monitoring of the physical layer is non-existent. When network problems arise, this lack of awareness causes unnecessary downtime that impacts the bottom line. Panduit solves this problem with a holistic approach to Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). This solution is based on the
Unified Physical Infrastructure℠ (UPI℠) approach and includes intelligent devices and software automation tools, change management, service desk platforms and pre-defined dashboards and reports.
Intelligent architectures demand infrastructure flexibility.
As a result of
consolidation and automation projects, the popularity of DCIM has skyrocketed. These technologies demand infrastructure changes to accommodate space, power, cooling, environmental and connectivity requirements and meet asset use objectives. Data Center Infrastructure Management can help you reduce applications downtime and operational costs, support Information Technology Service Management (ITIL) initiatives, increase sustainability and meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
Physical Infrastructure Manager™ (PIM™) software is at the core of our DCIM solution.
PanView iQ™ (PViQ™) hardware and select third-party devices, the
Physical Infrastructure Manager™( PIM™) software platform is the foundation of DCIM and provides an end-to-end physical-to-logical view of your entire data center. It also works with your existing DCIM suites to enhance or extend their capabilities.
The PIM™ software platform offers visibility into:
Process documentation of IT assets, moves, adds, and changes (MACs)
Power consumption, temperature, and humidity measurement of active equipment
Centralized monitoring of IT assets through a single platform
Underutilized assets and resources
Unauthorized patch field changes
Potential physical network security breaches
Root cause analysis of physical network problems
PIM™ Software Platformhelps ensure that your physical infrastructure remains in alignment with objectives by monitoring and analyzing data to best practices, policies and procedures. PIM™ helps to define mission-critical business services, and maps IT (e.g., servers, switches and software applications) to facilities (e.g., power, cooling, and cabling). PIM™ delivers insights into your physical infrastructure and the modular nature of its construction to support easier realignment when necessary.
