Data Center Architecture Handles Hardware and Software
Able to integrate with existing IT and building management systems, APC’s InfraStruXure Central, Capacity Manager, and Change Manager provides a standardized method of integrating rack-level power, cooling, and environmental data and alarms into one centralized system. The architecture correlates the physical infrastructure of the data center “white space” with the supporting building infrastructure, providing the ability to create, store and push the system configuration out to similar APC devices with a Network Management Card. The Capacity Manager also offers an Energy Cost Management Report plug-in, which provides visibility into the energy usage of a specified group of equipment, based on kW/hour.
