Nimsoft DCIM Solution Delivers Data Center Energy Management

New Solution Empowers IT Organizations and Service Providers to Optimize Data Center Energy Usage and Support Sustainability Initiatives

CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimsoft today announced Nimsoft ecoMeter, a rapidly deployable Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution that enables IT organizations and service providers to increase efficiency, achieve greater availability and better leverage available power and cooling capacity.

Nimsoft ecoMeter provides a unified view of energy consumption across diverse computing, network, storage, power and cooling systems. It collects real-time energy data from data center and IT infrastructure to identify "hot spots," alert users to problems, and report on consumption trends. These capabilities enable organizations to get greater value from their infrastructure and improve the financial transparency of IT.

By delivering their capabilities via a scalable SaaS platform, Nimsoft is making it functionally and financially feasible for mid-market IT organizations to reap the benefits of advanced energy management.  The multi-tenant Nimsoft SaaS model is also highly appealing to service providers that require elasticity of scale and cost in order to respond to constantly changing client engagements.

"As energy prices continue to rise and companies become more committed to sustainability initiatives, there is growing demand for solutions that enable power and cooling management best practices in the data center," said Aaron Brooks, Innovation Office, Softchoice.  "Nimsoft ecoMeter delivers the rich insight our clients need to take a practical, fact-based approach to energy management that impacts bottom-line profitability."

Nimsoft ecoMeter users can access its robust DCIM capabilities from directly within Nimsoft Monitor, giving them a common view of power, infrastructure health, and the end-user experience.  Its integration with Nimsoft Service Desk enables customers to launch and manage processes necessary to optimize energy use.

Nimsoft ecoMeter is the latest in a series of additions to the Nimsoft ITMaaS solutions portfolio, including Nimsoft Service Desk and Nimsoft WatchMouse.  It leverages industry-leading CA ecoMeter technology, which helped establish CA Technologies as a leader in the DCIM market (Source: IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Datacenter Infrastructure Management [DCIM] 2011 Vendor Analysis, Document No. 232449, January 2012).

"The Nimsoft platform makes it easy for customers to modularly add new IT Management-as-a-Service capabilities as we make them available," said Chris O'Malley, Nimsoft CEO.  "Sourcing these management capabilities from the cloud allows them to drive down costs—even as they improve their ability to deliver reliable services and respond adaptively to the changing needs of the business."
