Raritan introduced dcTrack® 2.6 DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) software with new intelligent connectivity management capabilities to help data center professionals manage both network and power connections more efficiently. With better visibility of end-to-end connections of data center infrastructure resources, untapped capacity can be discovered and used — reducing capital and operational expenditures.
dcTrack’s new modern, easy-to-use web interface for Connectivity Management visualizes power and data network circuits – two key data center infrastructure components. Circuits are shown end-to-end with all the intermediate nodes, providing detailed information about each node or connection point. dcTrack’s intuitive circuit builder has the flexibility to model any data network topology going through any number of patch panels without violating connectivity standards. It also allows the user to model the power path from the data center’s uninterruptable power supply (UPS) going through the power distribution units (PDUs), circuit breakers, rack PDUs, and down to the load – the servers and switches – without allowing power capacities to be exceeded at any node.
