WEST KINGSTON, R.I. -- APC, the global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, today announced the availability of its new Capacity Manager and Change Manager software applications. With the launch of these data center management software tools, APC becomes the first and only company to integrate the three essential elements of data center design, operations and management in one platform in order to optimize both efficiency and effectiveness in the physical layer.
aligns the capabilities of the physical infrastructure with the changing data center requirements in real time, tracking the optimal installation location for new or existing equipment based on that equipment's electrical load and thermal profile. Change Manager enables rapid and accurate physical infrastructure changes including installing, moving and decommissioning of IT equipment without unexpected issues or surprises.
"With the current trend of higher power densities, blade servers, virtualization and increasing energy costs the dynamic data center environment will benefit from intelligent software tools to make optimum use of existing physical infrastructure," said John DiPippo, senior vice president, Management Systems and Software, APC-MGE. "With the InfraStruXure(R) Central monitoring platform and these two new software modules, APC pioneers the use of real-time data and intelligent software modeling. Using Capacity Manager and Change Manager, facility and IT professionals now can manage frequent physical equipment changes in the data center, as well as determine the effect planned changes and growth will have using 'what if' type scenarios."
