LONDON – VIRTUS Data centers Ltd. (VIRTUS), London’s flexible and efficient data center specialists, today announced the launch of the VIRTUS Intelligent Portal (VIP), the industry’s first free Data center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution for colocation customers in the UK.

The VIRTUS Intelligent Portal is web based and provides customers with complete transparency into and control of their colocated data center usage – not offered by other colocation providers. This enables them to visualise and manage space, power, cooling and energy efficiency through a single pane of glass.

The VIP has been developed in conjunction with TDB Fusion, specialising in IT automation and integration and iTRACS who deliver open, enterprise-class DCIM solutions. The collaboration means the VIP has been designed to be a highly flexible system ensuring ease of adoption and integration with existing applications such as: Salesforce, Sage Accounting, Trend Building management and Schneider power monitoring.

As well as standard DCIM capabilities, the collaboration means customers can take advantage of iTRACS licensing to integrate data from their IT assets, giving them additional visibility and management. Using the VIP, customers are able to exercise the same amount of control as if it were their own data center and can do this from a remote or office location via the web based portal.

The VIP also provides enhanced visibility into data center system utilisation and has the ability for customers to analyse large amounts of information and see it presented with detailed 3D visualisations of their deployment. The VIP has a roadmap that will continually be added to, providing customers with transparency into the support systems of their colocation installation that include: remote access control, trouble ticketing, invoicing and SLA performance monitoring and can be customised to meet departmental or company brand requirements. Customers can also customise their web page to view only the information that is relevant to them.

Matthew Larbey, Product Strategy Director, VIRTUS Data centers, said: “This is the first colo DCIM offering of its kind in the UK. Every data center can collect data, but it’s what you do with it that makes it valuable. As a result, business executives are challenging their IT staff to convert data centers from cost centers into producers of business value. Having an effective DCIM solution in place combined with flexible colocation terms is one of the best ways to achieve this.”

Colin Aurelius, CEO, TDB Fusion said: “The VIRTUS Intelligent Portal is the first solution of its kind to provide colocation customers with the ability to transform data into powerful management information that’s visible, meaningful, and actionable. The VIP’s open architecture means customers can leverage the management information directly, or integrate it with their existing applications, making it an ideal offering for colocation customers with multiple data center assets, and enabling a service orientated data center strategy for the business.”
