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.
