EkkoSense will preview its unique new intelligent ‘Cooling Advisor’ capability at Data Centre World in London ExCeL on 12-13 March 2019.

‘Cooling Advisor’ will be launched later this year as part the company’s next generation SaaS-powered EkkoSoft Critical (V5) 3D monitoring, management and optimisation software. EkkoSense’s innovative ‘Cooling Advisor’ capability will expand on it’s leading real-time data centre M&E Capacity Planning and Simulation functionality to provide operations teams with specific cooling performance recommendations and advisory actions to help monitor, manage and maximise their data centre’s operational performance. Unlike traditional DCIM or consultancy led CFD approaches, EkkoSoft Critical delivers tangible results based on real-time data and advanced analytics.

“EkkoSoft Critical already sets the standard when it comes to providing organisations with real-time visibility of critical data centre operational data. Our next major software release (V5) – featuring Cooling Advisor – will take things even further, effectively making best practice thermal optimisation and guaranteed data centre cooling energy savings achievable just by acting on our SaaS software’s advice,” commented EkkoSense’s CEO Dean Boyle.

“By following the recommendations of the Cooling Advisor, we’re confident that this EkkoSoft Critical release will unlock data centre cooling energy savings of at least 10% without the requirement for further specialist data centre thermal optimisation services” continued Dean. “However, organisations should see this level of performance improvement as just the entry point to effective data centre performance optimisation. EkkoSense customers already achieve an average 25-30% reduction in their data centre energy cooling costs, and that’s only likely to increase as we further evolve our proposition to embrace fully autonomous cooling powered by EkkoSoft Critical, which is currently delivering very promising results at our beta customers.”

EkkoSense’s innovative ‘Cooling Advisor’ functionality will include the ability to clearly identify data centre floor tiles or grilles that need changing, the ability to identify and recommend immediate adjustments to setpoints in the coldest parts of the data centre room, as well as the monitoring of Air Handling Units to highlight and suspend those not actually doing any active cooling.

EkkoSoft Critical’s comprehensive Capacity Planning and Simulation capabilities combine to enable data centre operators to improve the real-time management of the cooling, power and space aspects of their data centre capacity – helping to identify potential problems earlier that could threaten IT availability. EkkoSense’s DCIM-class integrated SaaS software and wireless sensor solutions allows organisations to see exactly where and how they’re currently under or over-cooling their data centre estate. This translates directly to significant energy savings, with 100% of EkkoSense customers successfully removing thermal risk from their data centres, while also securing an average 25-30% reduction on their data centre cooling costs.
