Schleifenbauer introduces DCIM tool in collaboration with software partner Perf-iT.

Last week, Schleifenbauer launched the new DCIM software tool DCMS GO for its customers, which was developed by Dutch company Perf-iT from Sliedrecht.

DCMS GO is a monitoring tool for Schleifenbauer PDUs and DPM energy meters, and is now offered free of charge to data centres that work with Schleifenbauer products. If desired, the package can be expanded by Perf-iT to a comprehensive (priced) DCIM package, including features such as: live data visualisation, alerts via e-mail and SMS and, in the most complete version, monitoring of all data centre elements.

Jos Janssen, head of sales & marketing: “Our aim is to help our customers with the integration of the data of our PDUs and energy meters in their DCIM tool. We are already doing this in other known DCIM platforms, such as: Perf-iT, Schneider InfraStruxure Manager and Sunbird DCIM. Our products communicate through various protocols, including: SNMP (v1, v2c and v3), Modbus and API. This makes integration simple and feasible for the customer.”

“For data centres that work with Schleifenbauer products and do not (yet) have a DCIM tool, or are looking into purchasing another package, we offer a Datacenter Control & Management System (DCMS) in collaboration with Perf-iT. The specially developed DCMS GO offers a monitoring tool for Schleifenbauer PDUs and DPM energy meters, which we provide free of charge to our customers.”

René de Theije, director of Perf-iT, explains why they are so satisfied with this collaboration: “Our service complements the proposition of Schleifenbauer perfectly, without obligating the customer in any way. However, the first experiences already show that we can often be of added value when it comes to finding solutions for monitoring challenges of the data centres that we have visited together.”

Jos Janssen points out why this choice was made: “We owe our right to exist to excellent customer service and high-quality products. By applying these same principles in supporting our customers where desired, we are demonstrating that we want to maintain our industry-leading position in offering value-added solutions for our clients.”
