Predictive modelling firm Romonet has updated its Portal suite for data centre monitoring with the ability to compare predicted and actual performance of infrastructure down to individual subsystems, enabling users to spot problems and take action.
Available now, Portal 2.0 offers businesses the ability to continuously improve the performance of their data centre infrastructure by adding tools to compare expected performance against actual performance, right down to individual subsystems. Romonet claimed its tool is the only platform to bring together an in-depth view of facilities, IT and business statistics to allow data centre owners to forecast, plan and track business performance.
Romonet chief executive Zahl Limbuwala said that while other data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) tools can drill down to the same granular level as Portal 2.0, administrators need some reference point to determine whether the measured performance is at the level it should be.
"Having actual metered data without knowing what each meter should be reading can actually lead operational teams into a false sense of security. With Portal 2.0 deployed on top of a DCIM solution, operational teams can now see an ‘expected' value against each sub-meter," he said.
Portal 2.0 is delivered using a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, either on the customer's premises behind the firewall or hosted via a dedicated fully managed platform.
Romonet said that Portal 2.0 can be deployed and delivering value to customers in days, as it does not require costly hardware or software agents.
"Typically we can model any running data centre in no more three to five days and have them up and running in Portal in under two weeks," Limbuwala claimed.
