Branch Circuit Monitoring, or BCM, enables the tracking of energy usage by the row or cabinet, making calculating PUE for specific systems simple. In a colocation facility, BCM can make billing for individual users very accurate, and supplying those clients with the information and documentation they need a matter of simply customizing a report.
With BCM, a user can improve energy efficiency and capacity planning, figure carbon emissions and ease phase and load balancing. Our built-in dashboards and automatically-created metrics make tracking and trending simple. Or, customize your screens and reporting to fit your needs.
You want to proactively respond to potential threats to your data center’s uptime.
FieldView makes this a reality with a real-time data center alarming/alert engine that consolidates all infrastructure events into a single interface. FieldView was designed from the ground up to "speak" to all of the systems within your data center, regardless of communication protocols. Its vendor-neutral non-proprietary framework easily communicates with all of the monitoring and control platforms installed at your facility.
FieldView's industry-leading interface offers a "Single-Pane" view into all aspects of your data center operation. It provides the high-level view of your entire global operation required by a NOC or operation command center and with just a few clicks, allows you to quickly drill down to see the status of any component within you data center in real-time. Alarms are delivered anywhere you want them, by e-mail, phone, pager, etc. They allow you to see the degree of severity of the alarm, using traditional stop-light colors, red, yellow and green, and enable you to take proactive steps to correct problems before they become critical.
Continuous logging of all alarms and alerts ensures that you have a permanent record of all operational conditions allowing detailed chronological forensic review of events.
Temperature is one of the most critical factors that determine the health of your data center. Too high, and you run the risk of damaging down-time. Too low, and you might be over-cooling, which is expensive and wasteful. What you need is a real-time view of the temperature and humidity in your data center, so you can keep them at optimal levels, without having to go around taking manual readings.
New Dynamic Heat Map

FieldView includes a real-time Thermograph, creating an up-to-the-minute image of data center temperatures. Environmental temperature and humidity information can be retrieved from wired or wireless sensors, (which FieldView can provide and install) and from existing monitoring and control systems. With enhanced graphics for readability and effective data interpretation, user-controlled reports and “snapshot” and “slideshow” features, this Heat Map makes it easy to assess status at a glance. The information is polled, graphed and stored so that in addition to real time data, the data center team can create trending reports to aid in enhancing the efficiency of the room as well as to serve as a guide for future deployment planning.
Whether your installation is a traditional raised floor environment, contained hot or cold aisle arrangement, one of the many vendor-specific high density solutions, containerized compute platforms or a combination of the above, FieldView will provide you the real-time information you need to drive energy and operational performance.
