FEATURE DATA CENTRE MANAGEMENT


INSIGHTS FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM DATA CENTRES


Siemens’ new Data Centre Hub monitoring software complements the company’s portfolio for data centres, enabling effective operation of small to medium-sized colocation and enterprise data centres


D


ata Centre Hub is a cloud-based application that provides live


monitoring, automated analysis and advanced reporting of historical infrastructure performance data, using IoT connectivity and analytics. It combines and analyses data from field devices and external information sources, for instance weather data, to provide actionable insights to all user roles. Data centre facility and IT managers, as well as technical personnel and management get full visibility of key performance indicators such as power and cooling efficiency. Data Centre Hub provides them with site transparency at any time and on any device – smartphone, tablet or PC – to better manage their operations. “Data Centre Hub is designed


specifically to meet the needs of operators who manage multiple small


and medium-sized data centres from multiple locations. We empower the operators with the situational awareness across all sites and detailed analysis of performance of individual sites,” says Sabine Erlinghagen, head of digital buildings at the Siemens building technologies division. “User centric design was applied to ensure that Data Centre Hub is an efficient, easy-to-use and powerful solution for these types of data centres.”


SCALABLE SUBSCRIPTION The web-based product is easy and fast to deploy, and it is offered as a scalable subscription model. The offering is also vendor-agnostic and, as a result, the software can bundle data from different sources and types of equipment that often run side by side in data centres.


The analysis of the operating data


collected reveals trends that can be used to optimise energy use, operations and costs as well as to deploy personnel resources efficiently. Other data analyses, like heatmaps,


enable a swift response if an incident occurs and are useful for predictive maintenance. A clear dashboard structure provides users with up to date information on the status of their site or multiple sites that are geographically distributed at any time. Additionally, notifications can be set by users and sent via text or email. Data Centre Hub also enables automated reporting, ensuring transparency and the fulfilment of SLAs between colocation data centres and their tenants.
