For instance, Schneider Electric's StruxureWare for Data Centres Suite, provides customers with detailed insights into the energy usage of their data centres and supporting facilities. Based on intelligent modelling of the electrical and mechanical topology, the flow and usage of energy through subsystems is analysed and presented on Web-based dashboards. The management system enables data centre managers to provide a high level of overview of energy usage and cost back to the organisation as well as deep insights into where each kW is spent.
The complete suite is able to provide data gathering, monitoring, automation, and planning and implementation functionalities to allow data centre managers and facility managers to have an integrated and multifaceted view of all the mission critical physical systems of the data centre, and complete visibility and control over their data centre's daily operations. This will help business better optimise their power and cooling systems to match current IT load which in turn improves PUE rating.
