Hosting ReviewsLas Vegas – Modius, Inc., a leading provider of real-time monitoring solutions for data center critical infrastructure, today announced the general availability of OpenData version 3.5, which offers improved capacity management capabilities and allows colocation operators and enterprises to implement chargeback for power and cooling costs.

The latest release of Modius’ flagship product enables customers to analyze resource utilization and capacity of data center assets based on flexible, user-defined groupings.  Data center managers can now unify data from heterogeneous equipment and easily generate reports of energy consumed by customized groups of devices, including individual racks, rows, zones or customers.

To help operators better manage their facilities, OpenData v3.5 adds several important features for data analysis and visualization, including new reports for tracking current values by flexible groups, new statistical analysis tools for calculating energy consumption and other performance metrics, and improved visualization of systems and subsystems to easily identify performance anomalies, patterns and trends across different groupings of equipment.

“This release is a major step forward in achieving higher levels of data center operational maturity,” said Jay Hartley, Chief Scientist at Modius.  “Our new features provide facility managers with custom views of actionable intelligence from diverse equipment sources.  Reports can reflect operational perspectives like zones or racks, or business perspectives like external customers or internal cost centers.”

New data mining capabilities extract and present granular data for improved data center performance analysis across the entire enterprise.  These new capabilities include:

• New User-Defined Device Tags: New multi-point tagging structure allows users to create flexible groupings that align with business operations (e.g., racks, rows, zones or customers).
• New Current Value Tabular Reporting: New native reporting structure leverages device tags to enable data ‘roll-ups’ and other groupings for analysis of current values (e.g., total by customer group).
• New Historical and Statistical Analysis Reporting: Additional reporting capabilities with statistical analysis (e.g., min/max/average time integration) and other user-defined arithmetic calculations.
• Improved Visualization Tools: Updated graphic visualization capabilities enable simplified identification of performance anomalies, patterns and trends.
• Major Upgrade to Web Services Interface: Updated web services interface allows richer integration with other reporting or data center management products for federating data and unifying operations.

Modius will be providing a live demo of OpenData v3.5 at this week’s Data Center World Conference at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.   The live demo can be found at booth #629.
