Avocent, an IT operations management company, proclaimed an integrated platform, Avocent MergePoint, for increased data centre management with fast ROI.
MergePoint infrastructure explorer is a software platform that provides a detailed view of data centre conditions and assets and offers ways to design and run a data centre effectively.
MergePoint integrates resource management (heat, cooling, power, and space) with asset management and provides centralised automated view of these resources from a single location and with a single product.
MergePoint’s advanced modeling features within an organisation can identify specific discrepancies between where power and cooling resources are available and needed. Reducing discrepancies helps in reduction of overall power and cooling consumption in data centres.
MergePoint’s advanced user-friendly interface enables IT managers a view of data centre conditions and ability to catalog, plan, track and define outcomes with capacity planning and asset management, when paired with technologies such as probes, intelligent power distribution units (IPDUs), and switches placed in the data centre.
Michael Borman, CEO of Avocent, said: It’s clear from talking to customers that the traditional domains of facilities and IT are merging. Companies need tools for accurate real-time measurements to optimise existing data centres and for planning new data centres with the assurance of having sufficient capacity for servers and cooling equipment.
