Enjoy unparalled visualization
Innovative graphics are dynamically updated as equipment is installed, decommissioned or moved within the infrastructure. End-to-end connection visualization shows all the connections between any two assets, including intermediate assets. The device symbol library is rich, including all environmental statistics, nameplate power consumption information, dimensions and weights, plus connection and port information made available by the manufacturer.
Plan with confidence
Sophisticated modeling and predictive analysis capabilities, such as what-if scenarios, are easily created using a drag-and-drop interface. The Data Center Planner intuitive interface provides visibility into projects across departments and locations. These project planning features help organizations stay organized while allowing users to see potential impacts of planned changes before they occur, providing for prioritization of activities, while reducing commonly associated risks.
Know your capacity
Unique rack timeline and real-world power usage capabilities offer insights into actual consumption levels and predictions of when and how rack capacities (space, power, cooling) may be impacted. This single solution, with configuration and project planning capabilities, ensures that information is up to date and accurate.
Know your inventory
Save valuable time with on-demand reporting and centralized, controlled access to assets and plan information. Easily identify the assets that are in production and those that are on the move. The single repository eliminates the need for personnel to conduct labor-intensive audits and update multiple spreadsheets, freeing up resources and improving management efficiency.
Share critical data with other departments
Standardized APIs support exchange of data to and from the Data Center Planner software database. Data exchange allows for sharing of critical information across departments to support strategic operations management and planning.
