APC updates its data center software portfolio

APC, today announced the launch of InfraStruxure™ Management Software Portfolio 6.2, which includes updates to InfraStruxure Central Monitoring Suite and InfraStruxure Operations Suite. It also announced the introduction of an integration with VMware vSphere™ 4.1.

The new versions bring further support to an open, vendor-neutral platform that holistically addresses the needs of data center management by enabling IT professionals to design, operate and manage their physical infrastructure while systematically ruling out human error.

InfraStruxure Operations Suite 6.2 offers enhanced network management capabilities, including a new network report to provide a complete overview of available and used network capacity. With the bi-directional integration into VMware vSphere, customers can quickly locate the physical location of a virtual machine. In the case of power, cooling or environmental physical damage to infrastructure, virtual machines are moved from impacted host servers to healthy hosts for uninterrupted uptime and availability.

It offers a real-time data center monitoring system that can be deployed instantly, managed from anywhere and integrated with other management systems. It also has features such as consolidated reporting that provides easy access to all reports in one dashboard, including ‘sensor history’, ‘saved’ and snapshots of battery age, UPS load, device inventory and environmental conditions.

InfraStruxure Management Software Portfolio 6.2 seamlessly operates alongside and integrates with management systems and data center equipment from various vendors.
