Liebert Nform centralized infrastructure monitoring software solution provides data center monitoring of equipment for companies of every size. It provides network management of distributed Liebert equipment with notifications and messaging, with software versions available to meet business needs.​

Infrastructure Monitoring That Makes Sense For Your Business

Getting the information you need to know about critical support equipment for IT systems has never been easier or more cost-efficient.

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

A small problem in a data center or communications facility can quickly escalate into a disaster. Knowing what is happening with power and cooling equipment can keep that protective “envelope” at peak operating efficiency, vital to system reliability.

Today’s Data Centers Require Flexible Monitoring Solutions

Only Vertiv can deliver full-scale monitoring and control of these critical support systems by providing the ability to gather operating information from each piece of equipment and pull it together in one central location. The Liebert family of monitoring products meets the varying requirements of critical space applications. From leak detection to discrete monitoring, unattended orderly computer shutdown to enterprise-wide monitoring, there is a Liebert hardware or software solution that fits. By utilizing a network infrastructure approach to monitoring, Liebert solutions align a customer’s needs for real-time knowledge and system flexibility with critical system uptime and capital allocation constraints. This type of system can provide the information you need to manage your critical equipment, giving you a variety of ways to receive and manage this data — through computers at your site or even on the web via standard browser software. From the traditional centralized data center to constantly evolving distributed network topologies, there is a Liebert solution that provides just the right amount of control, monitoring, and protection for your critical space requirements.

Getting The Right Information To The Right People

Business runs on information. That information, however, must be managed and protected. Vertiv offers the tools to keep the people on the front line — such as IT, network, data center and facility managers — informed as to the status of their critical systems. To maintain the high level of availability that users expect, your monitoring system must be able to keep your people up-todate on any changes in the condition of your network infrastructure.

Liebert Nform Meets These NeedsLiebert Nform Meets These Needs

Liebert Nform is a network communications system that will enable you to leverage the distributed monitoring capabilities of your network connected equipment. This software solution combines full-scale monitoring with cost-effective deployment through the use of the existing network infrastructure. It is both scalable and adaptable so it can grow as your systems expand and business needs change.

Liebert Nform is available in three editions - Express, Standard and Enterprise – each offering the features and options designed to meet specific application requirements based on business size and needs.

When Systems Are Critical Monitoring Is Not An Option

Power Conditioning Units
A grounding problem in your power conditioning system causes small voltage disturbances which are reflected in the trend graphing of the Liebert vEM-14 controller. After further analysis, facility engineers discovered and corrected the problem.

UPS Systems
Liebert Nform receives a warning of a failed UPS battery test and forwards the conditions to the Liebert Services Response Center, dispatching a service technician for a battery replacement site visit.

Water Leaks
Your data cabling is lying in a growing puddle of water under the raised floor because of a plumbing leak. It is just a matter of time before that affects your operation. With installed leak detection products, a water-detected summary alarm was transmitted to Liebert Nform by the Liebert vEM-14 controller. The facility engineer was notified and corrected the faulty plumbing.

Power Distribution
IT recently installed Liebert MP Advanced Power Strips inside their rows of rack enclosures. Now, with the control of each receptacle, overloading of circuits is prevented. Liebert Nform users can easily control access to which outlet circuits are enabled or disabled.

Surge Protection
A surge protector has safeguarded your site through many thunderstorms. Unfortunately it self-destructed protecting you from that last surge and you don’t know that it needs to be replaced. Since Liebert Nform was monitoring the TVSS summary alarm, maintenance was notified to incorporate testing of the surge suppression device due to its recent heavy usage.

Generator Operation
Recent runtime on the generator has consumed most of its fuel. Since the low fuel summary alarm was being monitored by the Liebert Rack Monitoring controller, an event triggered in Liebert Nform, sending a request for refueling to the local fuel supplier.

Intrusion Alarm
The entrance of unauthorized personnel into a remote shelter is a big problem. The real problem is that the person who needs to know this is happening is unaware and possibly isn’t in the same building – or even the same state. Security personnel were alerted when the Liebert Rack Monitoring controller reported a door ajar alarm to the Liebert Nform system.

DC Power Systems
An overvoltage condition in an essential DC power system causes an alarm conditon. Telecommunications engineers are dispatched through Liebert Nform notifications, allowing the engineer to quickly replace the faulty rectifier before the critical overvoltage threshold was reached.

Environmental HVAC Systems
A high temperature alarm was reported through the Web interface to the Liebert Nform system. With advance notification, the standby unit was remotely activated, maintaining the desired operating temperature setpoint within the data center.

Static Transfer Switches
A faulty transfer switch could fail when your primary power feed goes down in the middle of the night. Before the primary power source failed, however, facility engineers received a “secondary source not available” alert from Liebert Nform via SMTP supported cell phones. The heads-up was given and the problem was resolved before the system went critical.

Liebert MultiLink Automated Shutdown Control For Maximum Data Protection

Meeting The Increased Demands For Consolidation And VirtualizationMeeting The Increased Demands For Consolidation And Virtualization

The Right Strategy: Are You Ready?
Server consolidation and virtualization create opportunities to reduce IT costs, enhance computing performance and improve data center space utilization. But this also changes the power and cooling profile of the data center. Liebert Nform integration with Liebert MultiLink automated shutdown software allows you to actively protect data on servers supported by the Liebert UPS equipment you are monitoring, using the same Liebert IntelliSlot Web Cards. Liebert MultiLink initiates proper shutdown commands to your servers when power and/or cooling exceed user-defined thresholds.

Stay In Control
Because today’s critical business applications are often virtualized and consolidated between several computers or servers, there is a need for shutdown software capable of protecting information on multiple machines. Liebert Nform with Liebert MultiLink performs the critical task of protecting your business from costly damage and data loss as a result of extended power failures and extreme environmental conditions that often exist with higher density servers.

Advantages of Liebert Nform integration with Liebert MultiLink automated shutdown software:

  • Automated and Orderly Shutdown on Environmental, UPS and Power conditions
  • Scalable
  • Network Based
  • Suitable for Single Workstation or Network of Servers
  • Wide Operating System Capabilities
