CoreSite Now Using FieldView DCIM
June 27th, 2013 By: Jason Verge
Data Center Infrastructure Management player FieldView Solutions has a big win with CoreSite Realty, a company known for its cloud-enabled data centers and the CoreSite Mesh. FieldView will help CoreSite drive data center efficiency with consolidated monitoring of power, cooling, and space inventory.
FieldView’s software will also play a role in a larger technology transformation project underway at CoreSite, which is an attempt to link all of CoreSite’s business applications, including FieldView, into one integrated view.
“FieldView understands the importance of automated monitoring for the most effective DCIM practices,” said Sev Onyshkevych, Chief Marketing Officer, FieldView Solutions. “As a component of CoreSite’s system, our enterprise monitoring solution will drive efficiency across the data center and enable visibility and transparency around power, cooling, and infrastructure.”
Tight Integration for a “Single Pane” View
FieldView developed a custom interface to integrate its software with CoreSite’s existing system. The FieldView component will allow CoreSite to sync data among multiple systems with greater data consistency. The FieldView solution will enable a single-pane, real-time view of constrained resources, including power, cooling, and space allocation, throughout the data center. It will also significantly strengthen CoreSite’s DCIM monitoring system, which will complement the control capabilities of the company’s building management systems (BMSs).
“Data center providers like CoreSite need better tools and automation to support their customers,” said Bill Wosilius, Senior Vice President, Corporate Operations, CoreSite. “Data center infrastructure management is our livelihood, and a world-class customer experience is essential to our growth. Being able to support our customers more efficiently and effectively is a differentiator that enables us to create added value. That’s why our approach to our technology transformation project was to select best-in-class technologies like FieldView and further strengthen our integration.”
CoreSite’s National Platform Growing

FieldView adds some much needed insight into the status and health of this infrastructure.The company has been aggressively building out data center campuses across America. Focusing on network centric and cloud oriented applications, these data center campuses are network-dense.
Most recently, the company announced a facility in Secaucus, a 280,000 square foot building with a first phase of 65,000 square feet. The Secaucus facility follows the launch of CoreSite’s previously announced 15th data center, located in Reston, Virginia.
