OpenData Power Management Module
The Power Module helps both IT and Facilities management develop
strategies for optimizing and extending power capacity in complex data center
Data Center Facilities Operators are tasked with ensuring maximum uptime, minimizing utility costs, and ensuring adequate power capacity exists to support an
ever-changing allocation of IT equipment.
Knowing exactly where capacity exists for new equipment deployment or equipment relocation without jeopardizing service level agreements, is critical for rapid
response to business requirements. OpenData Power Management is the
key to infrastructure optimization and agile support of business initiatives.
The OpenData Power Management Module provides the ability to create an exact model of the power distribution infrastructure. This model enables performance monitoring, fail-over, and redundancy scenario testing, and power capacity planning to support IT operations in your data center.
- Delay or Eliminate Data Center
Recover “trapped’ power capacity caused by over-provisioning.
- Improve MTTD & MTTR Metrics
for Power Related Outages
Monitor power infrastructure
with alarm and alert notification.
- Increase Uptime
Eliminate power related outages caused by human error.
- Reduce Power Expense
Adjust cooling requirements to match actual power loads and right-size power capacity to actual demand.
- Recover Power Costs
Track and report on power usage by customers or departments for bill-backs.
- Improve Efficiency
Increase server density to do more work by freeing up power capacity trapped by over-provisioning.
- Power Chain Analytics
Real-time dynamic capacity models of the power chain from grid to rack with converged equipment capacity and utilization data.
Power Chain Analytics: Real time dynamic capacity models of the power chain from grid to rack with converged equipment capacity and utilization data.
The Power Management Module for OpenData supports the following functionality:
- Interactive Software Model of Power Infrastructure
Complete documentation of your entire power chain, from utility to servers.
- Multiple Power Utilization Values
Manufacturer’s Rated, Derated, User Specified, Measured Real-time, or Downstream Power Feed Aggregates.
- Power Chain Visualization
Detailed view of complete or partial power chain with drill-down on individual nodes.
- Load Balancing Analysis
Instantly visualize power load imbalances for electrical panels and rack PDU’s.
- Circuit Redundancy Definitions
Defines correct mapping for power flow in architectures with redundant
- Redundancy and Load Testing
Interactively test the effect of adding or subtracting load or simulating equipment failures
- Provisioned Circuits
Provides the ability to assign power usage to customers or end-users to support bill-back reporting.
- Asset Management Support
Works seamlessly with OpenData’s Asset Management Module to prevent power-related service interruptions caused by equipment changes.
