Avocent has unveiled new management capabilities to its MergePoint Infrastructure Explorer software platform, designed to help IT managers better manage their data centres.
The company claims that the new enhancements provide a view into capacity planning, bringing additional return on inve.stment (ROI) and total cost of ownership benefits to enterprise customers.
According to Avocent, by integrating resource management (heating, cooling, power, and space) with asset management, MergePoint Infrastructure Explorer provides a centralised, automated view of these resources from a single location and within a single product. In addition, it also provides detailed view of data centre conditions and assets, and offers ways to design and run data centres effectively.
New in the release of MergePoint Infrastructure Explorer 2.2 are enhanced change management, capacity search capabilities, and rack timeline, the company said.
Ben Grimes, CTO of Avocent, said: Companies want to view and manage their data centre assets in real-time using one management toot. Avocent has leveraged its hardware and software expertise to create a tool that accomplishes these goals, allowing customers to know where their assets are, as well as plan for different ‘what if’ scenarios, and manage their data centres to reduce risk – all while bringing improved ROI and total cost of ownership benefits to customers.
