Automated excellence

Imagine a toolkit that, instead of repairing breaks and damages after they occur, prevents them before you even know they’re about to happen. That kind of intelligent approach is one aspect of Decathlon®, ABB’s data center infrastructure management (DCIM) system. Decathlon tools manage a flexible network of power, cooling and IT equipment, monitoring thousands of points to help everything run efficiently. Jim Shanahan explains how Decathlon automatically can shift loads among servers or even among far-flung data centers, call for maintenance before an impending alarm occurs, recommend optimal placement of servers, monitor power quality in detail and generally provide for a highly efficient, energy-saving operation.
