Asset Management

Asset Lifecycle Management, OEM library, Rack & floor elevation (2D & 3D), Workflow-based Change Management

  • Auto-discovers all intelligent assets, including facility devices like UPS, PACs, PDUs, Sensors that support SNMP and those connected through BMS
  • Captures inventory of the assets using SNMP
  • Maps all static attributes of the assets from built-in OEM library, called Manufacturer Repository
  • Tracks unrecorded changes in asset configuration to keep the asset inventory consistent and updated all the time
  • Maps critical relationships and dependencies among assets. This mapping also depicted on the Power Chain
  • Provides Lifecycle Management and Preventive Maintenance Schedules
  • Provides Workflow-based system to perform Move-Add-Change operations
  • Floor & Rack elevation through 2D & 3D Data Center Layout & Visualization

3D Elevation Modeling of Racks and Cages

Improves staff productivity through multi-filter search capabilities, up-to-date asset inventory of all Facilities & IT devices and real-time status visually displayed on DC layout.

Capacity Planning

What-if analysis on Power, Space & Cooling. Resource Provisioning

  • Inventory Management: Base-lining of data center resources being utilized and what capacity is available
  • Freeing-up of stranded power, floor and rack space, cooling and IT capacity in the data center
  • Forecasting future capacity requirement
  • Validation of projected capacity requirements through ‘What-if’ analysis, simulations and modeling
  • Identifying best place to provision new asset based on available capacities
  • For Colo data centers, workflow-based provisioning based on customer orders

Auto Provisioning (identifying the best racks in the data center for new device provisioning)

GFS Crane DCIM Capacity Planning enables optimal rack allocations, determination of upstream power requirements based on additional rack loads and cooling requirements based on thermal profiles. Better rack & floor space utilization leads to higher usage of existing capacities and deferring new builds or leasing new facilities.
