Modius OpenData Platform enables monitoring and metering of critical data center infrastructure
San Francisco and Emeryville, Calif., Apr. 12, 2016—365 Data Centers, one of the top U.S. colocation providers by market presence, today announced that it has implemented Modius’ OpenData data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software platform to enable real-time monitoring and metering of its data center infrastructure. This new technology allows 365 to improve power efficiency, pro-actively notify customers about power utilization and offer more flexible, usage-based power pricing options. 365 Data Centers chose OpenData because of the breadth of its features and ability to integrate equipment and collect performance data from multiple vendors across their portfolio of sites.
OpenData DCIM software performs real-time polling of critical data center infrastructure to measure power utilization, cooling effectiveness and environmental status. Featured in Gartner Inc.’s latest Magic Quadrant for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), OpenData was recognized for its innovative features such as predictive analytics, sensor-based real-time monitoring, asset management and thermal mapping.
365 Data Centers has deployed Modius OpenData across its colocation facilities and is currently providing its customers with metered power pricing and monitoring. All of 365’s colocation facilities are monitored 24x7x365 by 365’s Customer Service Center (CSC).
“Modius OpenData has helped 365 to better understand our colocation environment,” said John Scanlon, CEO, 365 Data Centers. “Modius’ engineers provided critical insights that are helping us to improve PUE and deliver a better service to our customers. In our opinion, OpenData was the best value considering its breadth of functionality.”
“365 Data Centers’ record of 100% uptime for the past nine years demonstrates its commitment to excellence,” said Craig Compiano, CEO, Modius. “Implementing DCIM will help 365 to deliver the next wave of innovative data center services and controls.”
