How is Sunbird changing the way data centres are being managed ?
Customers tell us that first-generation DCIM tools are difficult to use , slow to deploy and lack integration , and point tools like Excel and Visio are not shareable or scalable . Sunbird is solving these pain points with second-generation DCIM .
Second-generation DCIM dramatically simplifies data centre management via :
• Compatibility with what you have . Industrystandard protocols provide broad compatibility with virtually all third-party meters , sensors and software .
• Extreme scalability . Enterprise-class scalability that can handle millions of assets , billions of data points per day and thousands of users .
• Ease of use . Elegant design that requires fewer clicks , fewer mouse movements and is intuitive to use .
• Data-driven collaboration . Shared dashboards and team views break down organisational silos and encourage information sharing .
• AI and Machine Learning . Machine Learning technology enables automatic power capacity planning to increase the efficiency of capacity utilisation .
How do your core company values align with your focus on sustainability practices and achieving net zero carbon by 2030 ?
