To ensure business continuity, GFS Crane DCIM software has an Alarm Management System that warns you of abnormal conditions, such as a threshold breach in any of the critical parameters in the data center. This helps in preventing an outage in the data center
These alerts can be viewed on a dashboard or sent through email or text message to designated support staff and escalation points via the DCIM software, so that immediate remedial action can be taken.
High usage of power, with power-related costs accounting up to 40% of operating expenses in multi-tenant data centers, makes data center energy efficiency a top priority. GFS Crane DCIM software has the unique capability of measuring power consumed by servers, UPS, and network devices without installing energy meters. Besides this soft metering with over 95% accuracy, it also supports hardware-based power metering for both IT and Facility assets by integrating with iPDUs and BMS.
The DCIM software identifies top power consumers in your data center and reports trends for peak and lean time. What helps in making the data center energy efficient is that the DCIM software measures the real-time Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of the data center and identifies power distribution losses.
Our DCIM software can help data centers meet critical SLA terms and ensure customer satisfaction by generating energy bills or charge-backs for individual SBUs based on power consumed. For Service Providers, this also prevents revenue leakage.
Our DCIM software, GFS Crane, can allocate power and cost proportionately for each business unit served by a captive data center or for each customer in a Multi-Tenant data center, in the form of Energy Bills or Charge-back Reports
