Schneider Electric introduced StruxureWare Operations 7.0, an enterprise Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software platform. StruxureWare Operations 7.0, an integral part of Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare for Data Centers Suite, is designed to solve the most complex challenges of operating enterprise data centers. StruxureWare Operations 7.0 replaces Schneider Electric’s InfraStruxure Operations version 6.2.

The StruxureWare for Data Centers Suite is a combination of Schneider Electric’s market leading Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and Data Center Facility Management (DCFM) software tools. The complete suite is able to provide data gathering, monitoring, automation, and planning and implementation functionalities to enable an integrated and multifaceted view of all the mission critical physical systems of the data center. As a cornerstone of that suite, the StruxureWare Operations 7.0 platform allows c-level executives, data center managers and facility managers alike to have complete visibility and control over their data center’s daily operations.

“Schneider Electric recognizes the significant challenges our customers are facing while managing their constantly changing data center environments,” said Shrinivas Chebbi, Country General Manager and Vice President – India, APC by Schneider Electric. “With the release of StruxureWare Operations 7.0, we are addressing these challenges with the most comprehensive DCIM offer in today’s marketplace. Our platform ensures high availability and on-the-go control of the data center while lowering energy consumption. It is truly an invaluable tool that enables our customers to make informed decisions when planning for changes within their data center and maximizing its energy efficiency on a daily basis.”

As challenges like rising complexity, availability and increasing energy costs become a reality in today’s data center environments, customers struggle to find the correct set of tools to effectively operate and report on the various systems and functions of their data centers. StruxureWare Operations 7.0 offers the first comprehensive, easily deployable solution to relieve these pain points by introducing a scalable and rich new platform that promotes business growth while maintaining a real-time presence in the data center. Performing duties such as alarming, data collection, planning, optimizing, and analytics, StruxureWare Operations 7.0 is able to provide reporting on any aspect of the data center physical infrastructure. With the continuing evolution of DCIM and DCFM technologies and industry-leading software suites like StruxureWare for Data Centers, IT professionals now have access to all the data and tools they need to operate data centers that are more reliable, efficient, productive, safe and green from a single software suite.

StruxureWare Operations 7.0 enhances the flexibility and scalability of the StruxureWare for Data Centers Suite, with the ability to meet the needs of data centers of all sizes. This enterprise software can be deployed on both physical and virtual servers, providing the option of adding a clustering architecture to achieve the highest levels of availability and redundancy desired by the end user while allowing for the flexibility to scale to any size data center. Other new features of StruxureWare Operations 7.0 include the functionality to “drill down” into any data center location globally and get detailed real-time capacity and alarm summaries for any specific location within the data center. Additionally, a revolutionary instant 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) airflow view of any data center design enables users to prevent and resolve thermal issues quickly and efficiently.

Within StruxureWare Operations 7.0, two new modules provide multiple options to create customized reports to be delivered to those who need them in the most convenient ways possible. StruxureWare Operations: Insight is an advanced report designer which allows for customization of reports to match business needs with data integrated from any third party database or web service. The Insight module consists of a wide array of plug-in templates and scripting options allowing for customization specific to a customer’s data center. The second module, StruxureWare Operations: VIZOR, provides key data center capacity parameters and utilization for power, cooling, space and network directly to Apple iPhone, iPad or Android-based smart phones.
