Geist announced the launch of version 4 of Environet™ its customisable
DCiM solution. The latest software release incorporates new asset
management tools that enable tracking of rack equipment in the data
The addition of the asset management functionality means the Environet
solution spans across the traditional IT and facilities DCiM solutions.
This enables users to visualise and associate rack assets with actual
real-time power usage data to monitor energy consumption at the circuit
and rack level. The combination of asset data with real-time power and
environmental monitoring allows cabinets to be loaded to the maximum
capacity supported by the data centre infrastructure.
"With the latest enhancements to Environet, we have delivered a true
DCiM solution in real-time, to bridge the gap that has existed between
IT-based asset management solutions and facility based real-time
monitoring." stated Matt Lane, President of Geist DCiM.
Marek Stuczynski, Geist DCiMInternational Business Development Manager
added: "This new functionality assists IT and data centre managers with
capacity planning; a significant issue for them. In a recent Gartner
survey*, 46% of respondents cited capacity planning as the primary
reason for deploying a DCiM solution. The ability to visualise and
understand capacity will take away a major headache and improve
efficiency within the data centre. We believe these enhancements
position Environet as a leading DCiM solution in the market."
