EcoStruxure IT

EcoStruxure IT is a cloud-based data center infrastructure management (DCIM) service that can monitor all sorts of multi-vendor data center infrastructure, including UPSs, PDUs, cooling systems, and racks. It also integrates with the NetBotz physical security system, enabling remote monitoring of lights-out environments.

It’s easy to set up and deploy. Simply download the EcoStruxure IT Gateway software and in minutes it will discover all the devices it can manage within a predefined subnet or IP address range. Once connected to a piece of infrastructure, say a UPS, it begins sending data about that device to a cloud-based data lake. We then apply artificial intelligence and machine learning to the data, to glean valuable insights. For example, by comparing performance data from one customer’s UPS to data from similar UPSs in other data centers, we can tell when a UPS is showing signs that it needs service or a new battery – which our partners would then be in position to provide.

Smart UPS - 24/7/365 network uptime»

Don't let network downtime cost your business!


The APC Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is designed to prevent utility power blackouts, brownouts, sags and surges from reaching your electronic equipment. 


The uninterruptible power supply (UPS) filters small utility line fluctuations and isolates your electronic equipment from large disturbances by internally disconnecting from the utility line. The UPS provides continuous power from the internal battery until utility power returns to safe levels or the battery is fully discharged.


What does an hour of downtime cost your business?

Today, protecting your business network is more critical than ever. APC™ by Schneider Electric Smart-UPS™ uninterruptible power supplies:

                     

  • Protect critical network switches and routerss
  • Eliminate costly downtime by providing reliable, network-grade powers
  • Keeping employees connected to business-critical applications whether they are in house, at a co-location facility, or in the cloud.


Reduce human-error downtime, too!
