Datacenter Clarity LC®

Data Center Infrastructure Management Solution. Smart decisions and increased efficiencies powered by OSIsoft PI System.

Solution Overview

Every data center requires data analytics about their infrastructure to make intelligent decisions and deliver best-in-class IT services to meet customer requirements and SLAs (service level agreements). Although a huge amount of real-time data is available, the organization of the data and ability to turn it into actionable information is difficult and takes time. A good and meaningful look at the data requires various measures, KPIs, data sets, output formats, and time periods that meet the needs of key stakeholders. The team responsible for maintaining the operation of the data center and maximizing up-time cannot afford to waste time producing reports.

Datacenter Clarity LC combines OSIsoft’s real-time data collection with a lifecycle management and IT workflow platform so customers can make informed, data-driven decisions. These decisions contribute to a customer's bottom line and provide a distinct advantage in the highly dynamic data center marketplace. Data center owner/operators are able to view data center telemetry in real-time, generate meaningful 4D reports, setup alarms and event notifications, access on-demand reports for KPIs, setup and access multi-level and multi-location dashboards and reports, manage network and power cables and connections, generate CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) reports to understand air flow and heat transfer within the data center and better understand their data center’s operations.
