Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software is an essential tool in the management of a complex IT environment. With the right solution in place, users gain centralized and instantaneous monitoring, management, reporting functionality, as well as intelligent capacity planning. CEG’s DCIM environmental and power solutions allow you to maintain constant control of your critical facility – managing issues before they become problems, and well before they become catastrophic.
Environmental Monitoring & Alerting Solutions
Gathering information on environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, power, and leaks is an essential step in operating an efficient data center. We can help you select the right tools, then aid in get them installed and operating in order to collect the critical data you need in real time.
Aurora is CEG’s proprietary monitoring technology that allows you to clearly identify potential cooling- or heat-related issues – in real time. It is an extremely accurate wireless monitoring and notification system because it measures air temperature, not surface temperature. The instantaneous feedback provided by Aurora is invaluable when monitoring changes or validating best-practices improvement.
Power Monitoring Solutions
Power is now the single largest operational cost in an IT facility. Economic conditions and regulatory developments now necessitate data center managers to know the efficiency and usage of their IT equipment and supporting infrastructure. CEG’s power monitoring solutions provide the alerting, data visualization and reporting necessary to effectively manage a data center.
Rack Power Management Software
Fully leverage your investment by gaining control and insight into your PDU deployments. With our Rack Power Management Software, users can:
- Administer, monitor, manage and control rack power consumption from anywhere
- User defined groups to manage and report specific usage (chargeback, load balance, etc.)
- Activity logging and restorable history for operational accountability and reporting
Branch Circuit Protection
Branch circuit protection is an electrical safety feature and requirement for protecting IT equipment (and other electrical loads) as defined by the NEC and UL, specifically UL60950-1 which requires that all IT equipment placed in the data center be equipped with branch circuit protection. In a rack PDU, input power is typically broken down into multiple segments. Segments of a circuit where current is limited by a fuse or circuit breaker is referred to as a branch circuit.
We offer Branch Circuit Monitoring Systems that provide extensive monitoring information on branch circuits in PDU subfeeds, panelboards, main feeds to panelboards, and individual branch circuits.
Facility and Multi-Site Consumption Management
Facility and multi-site consumption management is a combination of hardware and software that enables the remote administration, monitoring and management of power consumption in data centers and remote sites. We offer solutions from a number of best-in-class partners and can match the right solution based on the user’s unique or specific needs.
