Switzerland-based leading global cabling and connectivity solution provider, R&M has introduced inteliPhy net 3.0, its software for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), in the Middle East region.
The latest version of this flagship solution includes a slew of new features aimed at making data center design, planning, and management even easier through a single, centralized dashboard.
“Improved uptime, enhanced efficiency, and more cost-effective resource planning are all top priorities for data center managers as the reliance of Middle East business on IT continues to rise. With the latest update to inteliPhy net, we have unlocked the ability to capture even more metrics and KPIs, while streamlining and automating the data gathering process. This makes it possible for businesses to gain a higher degree of insight into the performance of their data centers, leading to more informed decision-making regarding resource utilization, upgrades, and expansions.”
According to the company statement, the software collects information from Power Distribution Units (PDUs), Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPSs), and other network devices that have an SNMP protocol interface. The software sets no limitations on the number of objects that can be managed with its fully scalable system architecture.
The inteliPhy net 3.0 makes it easy to specifically choose the most relevant data, display it clearly and raise an alarm in case an error or a precondition, such as excessive power consumption in a rack, is met. These alarms, which are displayed in the DCIM Client Graphical User Interface (GUI), can be configured to trigger email notifications.
Furthermore, inteliPhy net 3.0 includes devices that can configure and visualize optical distribution frames (ODF). This function is suitable for planning the setup of 19” and ETSI-based meet-me rooms, as per the company.
It also provides full work order management tools to enhance data center design and administration. These include planning and generating work orders within the GUI, emailing work orders to installers, and time planning of work orders using Gantt charts.
