netTerrain DCIM Tackle data center connections, power and capacity

netTerrain DCIM Simple, easy-to-customize, feature-rich

Physical Space. Power Consumption. Cooling. Networks. Racks. Physical & Virtual Devices. Cards and Ports. Applications. Circuits. Cables. To gain insights and efficiently manage your Data Center, these are some of the components and properties you need to monitor and document. A good Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software helps you automate that process. The best ones go several steps further.

DCIM

netTerrain DCIM provides a centralized, multi-user, browser-based platform to visualize your Data Centers – from site to port. Easy-to-use navigation renders powerful hierarchical and subcomponent diagrams of data centers, IT inventory and networks. You gain greater visibility, control and governance to improve capacity planning and energy consumption, isolate troubleshooting and reduce downtime for improved service levels.

Fully utilize your assets. Lower data center costs. Prevent downtime.

Save money with proactive asset management

  • Find stranded or underutilized assets and put them to work
  • Find any asset, based on any parameter, in seconds
  • Troubleshoot faster with end-to-end circuit layout records
  • Know what is connected to what – down to the port level

Lower power and cooling costs

  • Put an end to zombie servers in your data center
  • Replace expensive smart power strips
  • Efficiently identify power/thermal failures
  • Streamline capacity planning

Visualize your entire infrastructure

  • With netTerrain DCIM, view your Data Centers from region, to rack… down to each port and subcomponent
  • Create your own hierarchies and visualize assets in physical, logical or any custom views
  • Track status, asset data and unlimited custom fields for any object
  • Create your own reports & dashboards in minutes
  • Manage your documents and workflows from one place

Increase space and rack density

  • Track the exact location of racks, equipment, trays and other elements
  • Color code elements by utilization and other capacity parameters
  • Stop wasting rack space based on nameplate power
  • Increase rack density by tracking actual power consumption
