More than just a DCIM system

ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation provides control, monitoring and optimization for your mission critical Infrastructure, with mechanical (BMS), electrical (EPMS) and DCIM capabilities in a single, industrial solution. By that, it is more than a DCIM system and helps to securely automate and manage both workflow and physical infrastructure, enabling you to continuously optimize your data center operations to the highest levels of performance. It provides industrial-grade tools to help you manage a flexible network of power, cooling and IT, so you can deliver data services faster, in the most reliable, efficient and sustainable way possible.

More than a traditional building management system (BMS) or building automation system (BAS), ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation provides the visibility, decision support and automation technologies on an open platform supporting secure, bi-directional communications with mechanical, electrical and IT systems. Data is routed through the system in real-time to application modules that enable you to comprehensively manage and optimize your 3 Cs: cost, capacity and control. Now you can reign in cost, better manage the capacity of your data center and its assets, and automate workflow and infrastructure to improve efficiencies to the highest levels.

With our ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation solution, you can “see” system performance and environmental factors that would typically go unnoticed until it is too late. Decision support is provided in a context-sensitive manner so that historical trends, forecasts, workflow processes, intelligent alarms and incident reporting provide relevant information quickly for rapid response and resolution. Plus, the centralized controls enable efficiencies through automation, helping to reduce human error.

These capabilities are provided through real-time monitoring and analytics based on ABB's rich history in mission critical industrial power and automation.
