Schneider Electric has launched its cloud-based data center management platform EcoStruxure IT Advisor. This platform is aimed at planning and modelling data center activities of large enterprises and companies behind colocation services.
The IT Advisor system is an extension of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure IT platform. The EcoStruxure platform uses the Internet of Things sensors and analytics to drive data centers more efficiently, to maintain uptime and save on energy consumption, writes ZDNet. This platform has already been deployed at over 480,000 locations and connects more than 1.6 million assets.
The new EcoStruxure IT Advisor platform analyses, among other things, the business impact of decisions on the entire environment, and automates workflows to ensure that the data center runs optimally. It also offers an option to manage assets and capture data in any environment. The platform allows teams to view device details and asset attributes in a logical way, knows Cloud Pro.
In addition, in-depth risk planning makes it possible to model potential incidents and demonstrate the impact of these risks on devices and infrastructure. The automated workflows further support change management, reducing the risk of human error and ensuring that best practices are implemented.
Furthermore, Schneider Electric has integrated functions to help co-location facilities understand how data is distributed. To do this, it maps out areas, cages and asset racks in a ‘floor view’ and shows how shelving is used, so that organisations know where there is space and can ensure that they are using their resources in the most logical and efficient way.
EcoStruxure IT platform
The EcoStruxure IT platform also consists of EcoStruxure IT Expert and EcoStruxure Asset Advisor. IT Expert is software with which physical IoT-assets can be monitored. Asset Advisor is a 24/7 monitoring service offered through Schneider Electric’s partner network.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
