Weekly DCIM Software News Update: January 29th

Nlyte integrates with Oracle virtualization; Emerson adds 3D cooling management; Indegy says DCIM is not fully protected against attack; Data Center Journal explores the integration of CFD data within the DCIM workflow.

Nlyte integrates with Oracle virtualization. Nlyte Software announced full support for VM server virtualization technology from Oracle. The Nlyte Connector for Oracle VM enables customers to align and reconcile resources running across their virtual, logical and physical platforms, which enables IT organizations to view each layer, and the resources being used, in context of other resources present in the data center.

Emerson adds data center cooling management in 3D. Emerson announced that it has added 3D visualization capabilities for data center cooling management in the latest release of its DCIM software suite Trellis. The new environmental monitoring and management module is called Thermal System Manager, which tracks the data center’s thermal profile to the device level.

DCIM systems not fully protected against attack, says Indegy. Industrial cyber security firm Indegy says that the number of attacks against industrial targets is growing, security is being eroded due to proliferation of Internet-connected devices, and the company is finding little enthusiasm within data centers for additional security at the DCIM level. Indegy makes software that acts as the bridge between customer’s information technology and their operational technology, and notes that few clients are asking to export data to DCIM solutions at the moment.

Using CFD alongside DCIM. In part 3 of a series Data Center Journal explores the challenges of properly using CFD in the data center, the complexities of airflow, and how CFD data integrates with DCIM workflow.
