The next generation 3DCIM approach enables asset management, real-time thermal optimisation and M&E capacity management integration in one single, intuitive solution.
EkkoSense, a leader in the provision of software-driven optimisation solutions for critical M&E environments, has partnered with ASSETSPIRE, developers of SPIRE – the truly flexible enterprise asset control platform for data centres. Together the two companies will support data centre operators with an innovative 3DCIM alternative to legacy Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) challenges – making enterprise-class DCIM available ‘inside-the-rack’ at a fraction of the cost of traditional, outdated DCIM solutions.
Both companies have developed intuitive, cloud-based performance optimisation and management solutions for data centre operations. ASSETSPIRE’s customisable asset control platform enables the fast and accurate capture of any data centre asset, in a solution that’s particularly flexible and easy-to-use and keep up-to-date. EkkoSense’s 3D visualisation and analysis solution makes it simple for data centre operations teams to collect granular real-time thermal, power and capacity data, enabling them to visualize airflow management improvements and manage complex capacity and risk decisions across facilities.
“To date, most of the solutions classed as DCIM have only really offered very basic M&E monitoring capabilities rather than the truly integrated infrastructure management offering initially promised by vendors. However, DCIM doesn’t need to be that way,” said Dean Boyle, CEO, EkkoSense. “At EkkoSense we’ve created a unique Machine Learning and AI-powered solution for monitoring, planning and optimising the performance of critical data centre environments. But, unlike traditional DCIM tools, we go much further to offer a solution that not only picks up on potential data centre problems or underlying negative trends, but also suggests recommended actions to resolve thermal issues, simplify capacity management and optimise cooling energy. The proven self-installation timescales of days, not weeks, will also bring benefits to customers almost immediately – along with a rapid, sub 12 months return on their investment.”
“ASSETSPIRE’s SPIRE is a highly complementary solution for EkkoSense, going way beyond basic asset management to embrace a far more dynamic monitoring model,” said Syed Akhtar, EMEA Director of Sales, EkkoSense. “By integrating SPIRE with EkkoSoft Critical we’re enabling customers to track all their data centre assets, monitor their operation at a granular level and then visualize real-time performance using our intuitive 3D visualisation technology. And thanks to EkkoSense’s Machine Learning and AI models, our combined 3DCIM approach not only highlights potential problems as they occur, but also offers clear recommendations to help resolve issues before they have a chance to develop. It’s DCIM that works without all the hassle and at a fraction of the cost of traditional DCIM solutions.”
“SPIRE is a highly intuitive, customisable asset control platform and integrating it with EkkoSoft Critical to create a distinctive 3DCIM approach will unlock significant benefits for data centre operational teams looking to gain a complete picture of all their assets and their performance,” said Steve Beber, CEO, ASSETSPIRE. “With our SaaS delivery model, flexible architecture and API integration, SPIRE is a great fit for EkkoSense. We look forward to working together and sharing the benefits of our next generation real-time 3DCIM alternative with the global data centre community.”Click below to share this article
