Panduit announced the launch of its Physical Infrastructure Manager (PIM) Software Platform Version 4.4, as an extension to the company's data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution. The PIM Software Platform Version 4.4 features the new PIM Advanced Dashboards and Reports Module, which provide deeper visibility into operational metrics that include critical parameters needed to manage a data center through a number of pre-defined dashboards and reports. According to the company, working with PanView iQ (PViQ) System Hardware and industry standard third-party DCIM devices, the PIM Software Platform provides continuous, local, and remote visibility of connectivity, power usage, asset tracking and utilization, and environmental conditions throughout the data center and enterprise.
“With this set of enhancements, PIM users are able to define custom dashboards and reports using an extensive array of data visualization components such as gauges, charts, and dials,” said Alex Gordy, Panduit Vice President of Intelligent Solutions. “This module filters data in real-time to refine or isolate the data set as needed, allowing data center managers to instantly access, analyze, and drill down through a wealth of information on data center and enterprise IT assets for effective decision-making.””
According to Panduit, benefits of the PIM software solutions include elimination of spreadsheets and manual asset tracking processes, which are time consuming to maintain and quickly out-of-date. The PIM Software Platform power solution enables power measurement and threshold monitoring of temperature and humidity levels within a data center and the extended enterprise. PIM connectivity solutions capture and record changes in network connectivity automatically and graphically display them in near-real time.
“At Cabela’s, we are implementing Panduit’s PIM software to gain visibility into the layer 1 physical infrastructure at our retail stores, track network connected assets, and facilitate moves, adds and changes remotely,” commented Tom Dorwart, Enterprise Technology Center Manager, Cabela's.
