Intel Data Center Management (DCM)

Data center infrastructure management

Data Center Management has become one of the toughest problems to solve for businesses around the world. Proper management is quickly becoming one of the best ways for any business to cut costs within a data center. When systems are running inefficiently this can lead to high energy costs, increased heating issues, and a wasted space within your facility. With proper DCIM a data center can reduce the costs due to high energy use, larger number of system component failures, and high system idle time. Improving these areas of inefficiencies will have a huge impact in saving your company time and money leading to a much more efficient and maintainable cluster.

Intel DCM is right for you

Aspen Systems is an Intel Platinum Provider

Intel is partnering with Aspen Systems to build greater confidence in the systems running within your data center. With this powerful software suite you can easily monitor any system gaining better insight into where your inefficiencies lay. The robust user GUI will allow you to easily track down idle servers, hot spots on a rack, component error messages, and also move systems around within racks virtually to help reduce the footprint within your facility. We want your systems to be long lasting and run as efficiently as possible, so we are working tirelessly to empower you to increase the value of the technologies you are using.

Intel® DCM is the easiest way to modernize your data center. With out-of-the box support that allows you to painlessly save on CapEx and OpEx, Intel DCM gives you complete visibility and control over your environment.

Monitoring for Modern Data Center Management

With Aspen Systems integrating Intel® Data Center Management software into your servers, you can reduce the power consumption of data center cooling equipment by up to 30 percent and improve overall data center operating efficiency. This can lead to great savings with very little upfront cost for your custom built cluster.

Challenges

  • The biggest challenge facing companies is the ability to increase density their in data center racks to meet business growth. Doing this, with high intelligence into systems power consumption, will allow a data center to optimize their resources to their maximum potential while also reducing the costs of operating the systems.
  • We know you need the data to be able to cool your systems as efficiently as possible. In order to properly do this you will need a customizable solution to cool your servers on a case-by-case basis to give you complete control.

Solution

  • Intel® DCM provides data, metrics, and analytics to allow you to gain the information you need. With this real-time power and thermal monitoring that gives you the needed reporting, and analytics into your cooling, energy consumption and compute monitoring allowing you to make the decisions to grow your data center the right way
  • This single platform allows you to reduce power usage and increase your systems efficiency. By monitoring air conditioning, lighting, security, and environmental monitoring. These powerful services are what you have come to expect from Aspen Systems and we are glad to be partnering with Intel® to give you the control you need in order to have the best system possible.

Benefits

  • With this technology you can achieve up to a 30 percent increase in systems efficiency allowing you to have a greener data center and increased savings.
  • Real-time information to give you the knowledge you need to reduce heating issues and create customizable heat distribution alarms. This is everything your data center administrators have been looking for to help make your systems as efficient as possible with the lowest amount of work and money.

A data center under control brings peace of mind.

Real-Time Power and Thermal Monitoring

With this powerful tool you can have precise power and thermal data to give you the knowledge you need to manage your systems.

Intel® Power Thermal Aware Solution

Intel® Power Thermal Aware Solution

Identify energy efficiency issues in the data center to avoid service delays and gain savings.

Predictive Detection of Cooling Anomalies

Predictive Detection of Cooling Anomalies

Predict cooling issues before they happen with a patented algorithm that detects anomalies in time to be resolved before a thermal issue occurs.

Health Monitoring and Utilization

You will have fine tuned analytic data on component failures and other errors within your CPU, disks, and DIMMs.

Server Health Management

Server Health Management

Enable server health management with real-time sub-component monitoring, error detection, proactive health management, and server firmware synchronization.

Granular Server and Rack Level Thermal Monitoring

Granular Server and Rack Level Thermal Monitoring
