2 Locating assetsKnowing what is connected to what (managing relationships and dependencies)Finding available resources (rack space, power, cooling, network, IP addresses, etc.)Making accurate capacity planningManaging changing and enforce best practices/processesComplying with internal/external regulatory audits
3 Different silos often make use of different solutions for their domains. The increasing complexity of data centers result in labor-intensive (manual) processes that are often slow, unreliable and prone to conflict and errors.
4 Limitations of space and power, along with the enormous complexity of managing a large data center, have given rise to a new category of tools with integrated processes – Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM).Visualization of your Data Center DCIM helps you to visualize the entire data center instantly and drill down to any desired level of granularity with just a few clicks of a mouse.Easily track all your assets in the Data Center. DCIM will centralize data and will end the endless searches in and for excel spreadsheets for assets and their configurations.Real-time monitoring of Capacity DCIM also provides you with automated tools and what-if models to simplify any required system moves or new system provisioning, while taking maximum advantage of existing space, power and cooling capacity.Optimized Communication between Departments DCIM provides an effective bridge to support the operational responsibilities and dependencies between facilities and IT personnel to eliminate the potential silos.

6 Your Challenge: accurate tracking of assets in data center Your Challenge: accurate tracking of assets in data center. Our asset management solution consists of three main elements: visualizing and tracking software, asset management tags (AMT) and asset management sensors (AMS).1. dcTrack® is our software solution that lets you maintain accurate, real-time views across your entire data center. dcTrack maps physical relationships between devices so you can easily see how everything in the data center is physically connected. 2. asset management tags support dcTrack by allowing you to attach unique electronic IDs to each IT device, so you can remotely track equipment locations with pinpoint accuracy.3. asset management sensors monitor your devices and provide location information on each asset at the rack level.Together, these components enable you to:Accurately understand what you haveQuickly make informed decisionsImprove productivity of data center operatorsSave time and money
7 Your Challenge: accurate capacity planning. Raritan helps with a data center capacity management solution that intelligently manages your IT infrastructure today, while preparing you for the future.dcTrack® is our software solution that lets you maintain accurate, real-time views of capacity across your entire data center, including physical space, power, networking and cooling available in racks, as well as capacity of infrastructure devices like UPSs and circuit panels. It basically shows you the entire power and network chain at a click of a button.You no longer need to maintain files and files of Excel® and Visio®, nor make trip after trip to the data center. dcTrack centralizes all your data and their associated connections to greatly simplify how you find, place and reserve resources.With Raritan’s solution, you’ll be able to:Quickly make informed capacity planning decisionsUse power resources more efficientlyDelay capital expenditures Save on operating expenses
8 Your Challenge: efficiently and easily manage moves, adds and changes Data center operations are complex.
