APC has launched the Enterprise Management Solutions, a fully integrated, open-platform, vendor-neutral suite of software applications to manage your data center's IT physical infrastructure throughout its entire lifecycle. From design and deployment, to day-to-day operations and monitoring, to planning for capacity and growth, APC solutions give you unsurpassed visibility, validation, and control over the physical layer.
While tools to manage the digital layer servers, software applications, data ports have been around for a long time, there haven't been intelligent tools to support the physical layer (power, cooling, racks, security and fire protection, cabling, environmental monitoring). Until now.
As the leading supplier of power, cooling, and racks for data centers, APC is uniquely positioned to address the complexities of managing the physical layer. Competitively, no software vendor, no IT device manufacturer, no systems or network management company can match APC's combination of experience in data center design, build out, and operation; power and cooling expertise; and cutting-edge thought leadership. With the largest R&D budget in the world devoted to IT physical infrastructure issues, APC has invest heavily in the Enterprise Management Solutions. The result is software power and sophistication never before seen in a physical layer management server, completely redefining the level of control possible.
While traditional approaches to physical infrastructure management have focused on individual functions or relied on proprietary tools that manage vendor-specific products, APC Enterprise Management Solutions adopt a full-lifecycle approach that integrates the different functions into one open, intelligent tool, no matter whose equipment you use.
