Web Hosting NewsSan Francisco and Santa Barbara, CA – Modius Inc. and LogicMonitor today announced a technology partnership to develop advanced monitoring capabilities for power and cooling infrastructure, allowing data center managers to generate a unified view of IT performance and energy consumption across their entire data center.

The unified view of both IT and physical infrastructure from a ‘single pane of glass’ will provide a previously unobtainable level of data center intelligence, enabling a comprehensive view of system performance stretching across both IT and facilities.

The partnership with Modius will enable LogicMonitor to add BACnet and Modbus-based communication capabilities for today’s networked power and cooling infrastructure equipment, extending LogicMonitor’s coverage of IT assets to networked devices beyond the rack.

“Both Modius and LogicMonitor strive to simplify data center management, reduce costs and increase availability. The goal of our new partnership is to push that envelope even further,” said Steve Francis, CEO of LogicMonitor.

In today’s increasingly dynamic and highly virtualized world, data center mangers need increased visibility across all devices, including both IT equipment (e.g., servers, routers and storage arrays) and the full range of supporting infrastructure (e.g., chillers, air handlers, electrical distribution equipment and environmental sensors).

“We look forward to working with LogicMonitor to bridge the gap between facilities and IT monitoring.  Uniting all of our intelligence into one console and delivering it through an agile SaaS architecture will help data centers achieve increased efficiency and availability, while also lowering operational costs,” noted Donald Klein, Modius’ Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
