Cormant Delivers DCOI Metrics Capability to Enable Federal Data Centers to Quickly Meet Compliance Goals
Delivering DCOI Capture, Reporting and Auditing capability within Cormant-CS, provides Government Data Centers a complete, cost effective solution to drive compliance and manage data center efficiency.
San Luis Obispo, California, USA, March 15th, 2017 – Cormant Inc., a pure-play developer of complete, easy-to-use data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, today announces that it is the first DCIM solution to offer a full suite of DCOI metrics, including dashboards and reports, as part of its standard DCIM solution. The 2016 Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) from the Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates that all data centers under the control of federal government agencies optimize existing facilities and report on their progress with a goal of late 2018 for compliance. The US Government DCOI Implementation program lists five key optimization metrics to be reported on by federally-controlled data centers and summarized at an agency level. At Cormant 15 years of experience demonstrates that no two data centers are exactly alike, so Cormant delivers its suite of DCOI metrics as part of its open, configurable DCIM solution. This means that each data center can rapidly deploy DCIM and refine the metrics captured as instrumentation is added or additional data captured.
“Cormant uses its proven implementation methodology to work with customers to deploy the Cormant-CS DCIM solution, quickly and cost effectively”, said Brad Beamish, Director, Professional Services for Cormant. Brad added, “Cormant’s unique configuration capabilities deliver DCOI metrics rapidly and accommodate a wide range of data center types while still providing data that is accurate, actionable and auditable.”
Cormant provides a full set of DCOI data points at the server, rack, data center and agency level, along with historical data capture, reporting, dashboards and network queries. The Cormant-CS DCOI package includes a set of goals that are used to track progress against the current federal standards. DCOI metrics are delivered using Cormant’s unique configuration ability, meaning if the metrics or goals set by the government change, adjusting to the new metrics will be quick and will not require additional software updates from Cormant.
The Cormant-CS DCOI solution is:
- Delivered as part of the core solution with no additional modules to purchase. This includes data elements, calculations and roll up, reporting and dashboard widgets.
- An open and flexible delivery of all metrics, allowing configuration to support a wide range of data center instrumentation maturity levels and track progress showing progress towards the mandated goals.
- Backed up and supported by the Cormant implementation and consulting teams and strong data migration capability, to ensure each data center is up-and-running with Cormant DCIM in weeks not months.
“At Cormant we know DCIM needs to be quick to deploy, intuitive to use and provide a strong ROI”. explains Paul Goodison, Chief Executive Officer at Cormant. “By providing the DCOI metrics as part of the core solution, we can encourage adoption and provide excellent value to the federal government.” added Goodison.
Product Partnership Transforms Data Center Data Collection
San Luis Obispo, CA, USA, September 20, 2015 – Cormant, Inc., a pure-play expert of easy-to-use data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, and Emerson (NYSE: EMR), a global leader in bringing technology and engineering together to provide innovative solutions for customers, today announced a business partnership. The alliance between Emerson’s Therm-O-Disc business and Cormant, Inc. provide customers additional insight within the complete DCIM solution that will simplify data collection and improve the efficiency of the data center landscape.
Data center managers implement DCIM tools to help reduce recurring energy costs by optimizing the data center environmentals, such as temperature, power, and humidity, as well as during server consolidations. All information is displayed in a single platform reducing the complexity and inaccuracy from having multiple data sources. Environmental data enhances the overall data center visibility, as solved by this partnership.
“Optimizing your data center’s ambient temperature down to the rack level can provide huge operating cost savings,” said Julie Mullins, Cormant’s Head of Marketing and Channel Development. “We’re excited to provide a plug-and-play interface with Emerson’s wireless sensors to achieve a time-saving, cost-effective way for customers to collect and display impactful data center information.”
Emerson’s wireless sensors enable reliable, secure and real-time monitoring and control of the data center environments utilizing WirelessHART, a highly secure communications protocol. As a wireless solution, Emerson’s technology for the data center is easier to deploy, reconfigure, expand and maintain compared to a wired system, saving the end user time and money. Emerson’s WirelessHART solution takes it to the next level by delivering unique encryption security, high data transmission reliability, and open standard compatibility.
The Cormant-CS DCIM solution combines all of the Emerson’s wireless sensor environmental data with detailed IT information about the facility, enterprise assets, infrastructure, and related connectivity to enhance decision-making with analytics and dashboards. Within Cormant-CS, users can configure environmental data to trigger Alerts when levels of temperature, humidity, or any other data point are reaching levels of concern.
According to William Stevenson, Director of Global Power and Environment for Therm-O-Disc, “The combination of Emerson’s wireless sensors and Cormant-CS provides the data center market with an advanced and integrated technology option for one-source environmental management solutions.”
