We are privileged to be again participating in Intel DCM Booth at DCD New York on 19th & 20th April, 2016 at Marriott Marquis, Times Square.
We will be announcing our new version GFS Crane DCIM v3.0 with a number of enhancements.
With these enhancements, we will show how GFS Crane is a complete DCIM for Enterprise as well as Colocation Data Centers. We will demonstrate how it helps in Data Center Operations, Planning & Management.
We will demonstrate the integration with Intel Data Center Manager and how that reduces cost of ownership for better capacity planning, power, space and cooling management.
Last month, we did a joint webinar with Intel DCM Group where we showed how GFS Crane mitigates risks of data center failures. Those who missed that may see the recorded version. If you are attending DCD New York, please visit us at the Intel DCM booth to see GFS Crane as a Policy-driven DCIM. Threshold levels for each monitored parameter and SLA terms are defined within the Policies section of GFS Crane DCIM. When a threshold level is breached Active Alerts are sent to designated users via email or text messages or sent as SNMP traps to an ITSM tool. Dashboards and analytic reports provide Data Center Managers key metrics against SLA terms such as average PUE for the month, temperature range and uptime standards for critical devices.
You can read more from a recent case study of GFS Crane DCIM with a telecom operator.
We launched a new web site this month.
The new content reflects the new capabilities of our DCIM Software, GFS Crane. We have extended monitoring to every critical infrastructure device supporting a data center, including DG sets. We have added multi-tenancy and we have added features to support Managed DCIM Service that may be offered by Managed Services providers.
While the history of DCIM is intimately linked to Energy Efficiency, more and more customers today are deploying DCIM software for Asset Management, Capacity Planning and Business Continuity. During the last six months, our engineers worked closely with customers and partners to enhance capabilities in all these areas. We have significantly reduced manual efforts in creating asset database. GFS Crane Capacity Planning now adopts constraint-based approach to provide realistic and implementable results. A new module of Advanced Alarm Management with a dashboard provides analytics that can help I&O staff to predict and prevent failures.
The global economic outlook looks promising. Awareness about DCIM value has increased with the changing topology of data centers with cloud and highly virtualized infrastructures. We therefore have reason to be very optimistic.
As we start a new fiscal this month, I must thank our customers and partners for their incredible support to get us to this stage.
