RACKWISE provides data center infrastructure management software specifically developed to meet the diverse needs of data centers and enterprise IT infrastructure environments.
What is RACKWISE
Since 2005 RACKWISE has been a pioneer and leader in software development in the emerging market called Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). RACKWISE DCiM Xtm software is used throughout the world to help businesses manage and measure their data centers’ operational capacity, efficiency and optimization.
RACKWISE DCiM Xtm is leveraged by more than 150 customers worldwide to track, manage, measure, plan, optimize and reduce operational costs for operating their data centers and Enterprise IT infrastructures.
RACKWISE DCiM Xtm provides the information crucially required for making informed and critical decisions from within a centralized environment where facility engineering disciplines, IT engineering disciplines, and business management disciplines all converge within a common framework. By empowering facility engineers and IT engineers to work within the system and within their area of expertise, the most common communications gap (between Facilities and IT) becomes closed and business managers becomes dynamically aware of the efficiency, opportunity, capacity, and cost for their enterprise and data center operations without having to translate either of the technical disciplines.
RACKWISE DCiM Xtm provides an unlimited and unrestricted real-time monitoring capability for measuring critical information such as power, current, temperature and other elements from a broad range of devices including servers, switches, power equipment, smart power-strips, dedicated sensors, and other devices by leveraging industry standard communication protocols that are built into RACKWISE DCiM Xtm.
It is critical that any DCIM solution you choose be able to communicate and share data readily with the other critical systems with your infrastructure. Your ITIL systems, CMDB systems, Building Management Systems, Workflow processes may have taken many years to perfect for your unique environment. RACKWISE DCiM Xtm is designed to add value, not take it away. Your existing investments and process improvements may be incorporated into your RACKWISE DCiM Xtm solution, through our optional Certified Integration Connector which provide the codebase and baseline platform for all integrations to build upon. Rackwise can guarantee integration with ANY platform (from homegrown data system to commercial products) in your enterprise, if you desire automated information sharing between systems.
