What-if scenarios allow users to simulate and assess situations to better plan changes and prevent disasters.
San Luis Obispo, CA, USA (PRWEB) July 21, 2015
Cormant, Inc., a pure-play expert of easy-to-use data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, announced its latest release of Cormant-CS. The release introduced what-if scenarios and time-saving advancements in the way moves, adds, and changes can be planned and executed inside the data center and other IT environments.
What-if scenarios allow users to simulate and assess situations to better plan changes and prevent disasters. The recently launched what-if analytics include power chain analysis which displays all affected devices in the power chain during a simulated PDU or UPS failure. Additionally, these data indicate each device’s power redundancy, a necessary knowledge point for downtime prevention. Similar what-if analytics are also provided for core or edge switch network outage visibility.
The new release of Cormant-CS also advanced its Workflow capabilities. Workflow now drives productivity with rack selection analytics for quicker, more informed decisions. Rack selection uses an algorithm to rank rack suitability for device installation location based on weighted scores of power, rack unit, and service environment capacity. Unweighted raw data are also available in the same report for situations where one metric is key to decision making.
“What-if scenarios provide a disaster planning and optimization tool all-in-one” said Paul Friday, Cormant CTO. “The combination of having trusted data, what-if scenario planning, and Workflow’s full lifecycle project management has transformed the way Cormant-CS DCIM users manage their IT environments. The process is faster, smoother, proactive, and more collaborative than ever before. It’s exciting to be a part of a movement so influential in some of the world’s largest organizations.”
