Multi-tenant Data Centers

data center management software

GFS Crane DCIM comes with two sets of colocation features. The first set enables colocation facility providers to provide value-added service to their customers:

  • Role based Access: Colo customers can assign role-based access to their users which authorize them to access specific functions only.
  • Restricting customer to view/edit own racks: Colo customers can get to view/edit only the cage, racks or partial racks leased by them.
  • Dashboard and reports: Colo customers can get dashboards and key reports, restricted to assets owned by them. If a customer wants a report on power consumed by IT equipment, the report will have data from only servers or IT equipment owned by that customer.
  • Self-service for provisioning: If a colo customer wants to provision new equipment, and have preference for rack or u-space allocation within their leased space, the customer can initiate a workflow which will propagate through the facilities provider and provision the request when the workflow is complete.

Systems Integrators

Data Center Infrastructure Management

A key challenge for systems integrators who undertake data center transformation projects - consolidation and migration – is the lack of resources.

Our DCIM software, through automated asset discovery, asset rationalization and capacity planning models helps overcome this challenge.

The DCIM software has an asset management module that tracks & maintains inventory of all assets (IT & non-IT) in the data center, helps identify legacy servers and replacement candidates and analyzes environments and criticality of different applications and servers on which these applications are hosted in different data centers.
