In a bid to expand its presence in the Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) market, CA Technologies has launched CA Data Center Infrastructure Management 4.0 (CA DCIM) solution.
“CA DCIM 4.0 provides customers with a comprehensive monitoring and management system which helps bring together IT and facilities to meet the needs of the business more reliably and rapidly, and at lower cost,” said Terrence Clark, general manager, Energy and Sustainability, CA Technologies.
The DCIM 4.0 enables customers to gather power and environmental information from data center facilities and IT systems to analyze, report, alert and control the data center environment.
The new solution helps decision-makers to effectively understand energy consumption and use, visualize data center space, place and locate data center assets, manage asset lifecycle, perform root-cause analysis and plan capacity.
With such capabilities, customers can reduce costs, improve service levels and respond more quickly to change.
UK-based IT services provider Logicalis claimed it achieved 159 percent ROI and an 11-month payback on its use of CA Technologies energy management technology.
“Because power is a major factor in the services that we provide, we need complete visibility into our consumption, our costs, our capacity and our efficiency. CA Technologies DCIM technology is extremely helpful to us in this regard,” said Simon Dayki, CTO at Logicalis.
The new version of CA DCIM bring a range of enhancements, including improved IT asset discovery and monitoring, expanded integration gateway functions for improved data capture, 3-D visualization of thermal environment, integration with CA Executive Insight for Service Assurance and expanded integration with Cisco EnergyWise.
In January this year, CA Technologies launched CA Private Cloud Accelerator for Vblock Platforms. CA Private Cloud Accelerator is the company’s fifth solution certified for use with VCE Vblock Infrastructure Platforms.
