According to Gartner in its December 2017 Market Guide for Data Center Infrastructure Management Tools report, “managing infrastructure has become more complex as the traditional data center view expands to include infrastructure housed in the cloud, micro data centers, colocation facilities or edge computing environments.” Gartner recommends that I&O leaders explore how DCIM tools can help using their Market Guide for insight. As Gartner reports, “DCIM tools require a bidirectional flow of data between them and adjacent software (such as CMDBs, BMSs, ITSM solutions, and workflow management systems).”
In Gartner’s Market Guide, FNT Software was recognized as a Representative Vendor offering DCIM tools and solutions that support core DCIM capabilities. We are proud to announce that FNT supports 100% of the 13 functionalities most frequently associated with DCIM tools listed by Gartner. These categories include “Required” (Power Monitoring, Environmental Monitoring, Reporting and Visualization, Resource Management), “Recommended” (Predictive Analysis, Modeling/Simulation, Air Flow and Pressure Monitoring, Workflow Management, Cable Management), “Nice to Have” (Resource Control, Fire Alarm, Physical Security) and “Value-Added” (Multitenancy).
“FNT knows that data center and operations managers are always looking to control costs, manage data center growth, and reduce the chance of IT service outages,” Horst Haag, CTO of FNT Software said. “Therefore, a comprehensive DCIM tool such as FNT Command can be utilized to optimize infrastructure resources.”
As a central control and optimization platform, FNT Command provides complete transparency throughout data centers from IT management, to network connectivity and cable management. The ability to have detailed insight into all of the relationships between IT, facilities, and networks enables data center managers to accurately predict the impact of planned changes and develop effective optimization measures.
