iTRACS is out with the latest release of its Converged Physical Infrastructure Management 3.4 software for data center management. The new version has improved change management capabilities and more integration options. CPIM is considered data center infrastructure management software.
Additions in the new release include a faster data import capability that can accelerate mode -building. There is also better integration through improved asset reconciliation, which helps operators resolve data conflicts when combining data from multiple systems. Better asset reconciliation helps in heterogeneous infrastructures.
There are also enhancements to operational monitoring with VMware and OSIsoft. The data center management software now collects, aggregates and analyzes more real-time data points on power, VMs and other key metrics.
Change management has been optimized with improvements in commissioning and task management.
“Whether it’s an enterprise or multi-tenant facility, data centers are increasingly leveraging DCIM to enhance agility and efficiency in response to the needs of their end-users,” said Anand Ekbote, vice president of infrastructure management at CommScope, which owns iTRACS. “The focus for data center operators usually revolves around speed and agility in relation to deploying new IT assets, getting actionable information on power and integrating DCIM with outside systems.”
