Integration Support for DCIM

Modius Integration Support for DCIM

Modius is well aware that data centers use multiple software tools to manage their facilities. OpenData by design was built to integrate and share data with these applications. OpenData has a fully published API and REST-compliant web services to provide a standardized way of integrating Web-based applications using the XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards over an Internet protocol backbone. XML is used to tag the data, SOAP is used to transfer the data, WSDL is used for describing the services available and UDDI lists what services are available.
