Industrial manufacturer Eaton and CA Technologies plan to release a jointly developed data centre monitoring, management and control system. The turnkey offering will combine Eaton power management hardware and software with CA Technologies Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) technology

DCIM provides organizations with greater insight into critical data centre infrastructure, across both facilities and IT systems. 

The Eaton and CA Technologies collaboration provides integration between CA’s DCIM technology and select Eaton power management hardware including uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and power distribution units (PDUs. As a result, CA DCIM can collect, analyze and report on metrics such as temperature, humidity, power by phase, current by phase and power factor. 

Organizations can use it to create intelligent alerts based on the data collected to gain insight into environmental and power issues before they have an opportunity to threaten IT infrastructures, the two firms said in a release.
