Goal

Provide complete insight and control over the data center’s daily operations to avoid inefficient manual monitoring

The ability to make informed decisions on capacity planning, equipment changes, and availability is critical for streamlining their operational efficiencies. Insights into IT power consumption and utilization increases efficiency and decreases cost.

  • Strategic alignment with a company that could meet technical and commercial requirements
  • IT power consumption insights to increase overall efficiency and decreases costs
  • Update software for better monitoring and control of aging infrastructure across two data centers
  • Infrastructure classification between “business critical” and “business important” all the way down to the physical data center infrastructure

Process

The nature of the gaming and lottery business means time critical transactions and processing must be real-time.

Any equipment downtime results in immediate and real loss of income, and because the events are perishable, betting on them can only happen before the event has begun. There is no way to recoup any losses after the fact.

  • “StruxureWare for Data Centers provides us with the ability to monitor all power from the main switchboard through to individual rack units."
  • "Without this tool, we would be looking at 15-20% more racks. This means we have been able to delay a new data center building by about 2-3 years, giving us significant savings."
  • Heat mapping and air flow analysis saves energy with a 2 degree rise in cooling temperature
  • Eliminate slow and inefficient manual diagnosis
  • "The availability of data center engineers has been terrific. They came in and helped us at different stages of the project, and have always been available."

Product Solution

•  Streamlined operational efficiencies

•  Optimum capacity planning

•  Significant energy savings

Monthly

Reports

Provides interesting colored graphs and images that are easy to understand, changing people’s perceptions as to what a data center is about.

Live

Alerts

“Increased monitoring means that if there is a problem, we can see immediately where that problem is and fix it. No more manual diagnosis, which tends to be slow and inefficient.”
