Reduce Risk, Save Energy, Release Capacity
So when introducing new IT racks, many simply just keep on adding more and more cooling equipment to cover anticipated need. That’s not only expensive but also inefficient – particularly as it turns out that most data centres typically run with cooling unit utilisation rates of just 34%!
This is where our EkkoSoft® Critical software can make a real difference - helping you to be much more precise in your data centre capacity planning. EkkoSoft® Critical delivers real-time access to all your data centre’s critical heartbeat power, cooling and space data, providing unrivalled M&E Capacity Planning and Simulation capabilities, with tools including:
Space planning and reserved space allocation to help you unlock further capacity from your existing data centre cooling and power infrastructure
Letting you instantly see the actual power, cooling and space impact on your data centre when adding new racks or cooling
Allowing you to build, populate and edit your data centre rooms quickly using our 3D data centre room builder functionality for much simpler ‘What If?’ real- time scenario simulations
Combining real-time cooling duty with rack level thermal data to provide clear insight into your true cooling capacity and utilisation information in specific areas of your data centre
With EkkoSoft Critical, Capacity Planning suddenly gets a whole lot simpler – giving your data centre team the ability to experiment safely with rack, power and cooling layouts. And thanks to EkkoSense’s real-time insight you can easily drag and drop new IT loads, making instant capacity decisions without the need to resort to adding more cooling systems.
Data Centre managers often believe that their operations are already operating efficiently and don’t require further optimisation. EkkoSense gives CFOs the powerful information they need to drive additional improvements from their expensive critical facilities
Organisations always need to be seen to be delivering against green commitments. Optimising data centre performance, while also securing significant energy cost reductions, provides demonstrable evidence of your green initiative at work
When it comes to optimising the performance of critical facilities, Data Centre managers using EkkoSense benefit from clear advice about the specific actions needed, rather than the often vague suggestions they get from DCIM and CFD
EkkoSense’s combination of accessible SaaS solutions, easy to understand data centre room visualisations and integral Cooling Advisory support makes life much easier for your team, giving them the tools needed to achieve true airflow optimisation
Effective data centre thermal optimisation translates directly to reduced cooling maintenance costs. The resulting shift away from over-cooling your data centre estate opens up the potential for extending your PPM times from six to 12 months
EkkoSoft Critical supports both room and site level capacity planning and reporting, providing FM teams with much simpler assessment of IT capacity for AC and DC systems, as well as full site and generator levels through power configuration tools
EkkoSoft Critical’s real-time management of data centre cooling, power and space requirements ensures that your IT managers gain an early insight into any potential issues that could have an impact on your IT availability
EkkoSense’s Live 3D views and simple Estate Page dashboards make it easy to support real-time thermal decision-making, while features such as Rapid Room Builder and What If? Simulation support mean it’s just a matter of ‘drag and drop’ to run complex simulations
