Solution Architecture

Trellis Platform Energy Manager Solution:

The Trellis Energy Management Solution enables you to manage the energy usage in the data center with a centralized solution, quickly and in a cost effective manner.​

Problem

To enable the data center functions at peak performance, it is important to understand the sources of data center operating inefficiencies to identify areas for performance improvement. Without the ability to understand or monitor energy usage, there is a high probability of inefficiencies in the data center that can result in increased utility costs.

In order to understand your energy usage, you must first be able to accurately measure it. To properly measure usage, you must start with a baseline of the energy consumption of every part of the data center. To be accurate, this view must include all areas — such as IT equipment, power distribution infrastructure, and ventilation/cooling infrastructure. This is an often timeconsuming manual data extraction process.

Insight into energy usage can help correct problems that result from not understanding the current power chain configuration can help to accurately measure cross department initiatives in the data center, can clarify dependencies within the power system in order to maintain and improve business continuity.

Solution

Meet your data center needs with the right-sized Trellis Data Center Monitoring solution all in a complete package with software, hardware and services. With the Trellis Energy Management Solution, you are able to:

  • Correctly manage power and cooling to resolve energy issues in your critical environment
  • Receive a comprehensive view of the power resources and utilization, for easier management of the complete data center power system – from utility to the rack power distribution
  • Determine which devices are dependent on a device using configured connections, allowing you to plan for power changes and maintenance, and perform risk assessments
  • Adjust operation loads on equipment based on actual information, to maintain service level agreements and improve efficiency – without worrying about availability
  • Respond quickly to critical power issues 24/7/365 y Automate PUE, DCIE, and energy reporting

Trellis Platform Capacity Planning Solution:

The Trellis Capacity Planning Solution provides software and services in a complete package, - With this solution you can determine if existing hardware is meeting the company’s current needs, and provide a projection for future requirements.

Problem

Data centers are facing challenges related to capacity constraints (associated with power availability, space, asset utilization, and thermal management) as well as looking for more effective ways to plan expansion projects, consolidation projects, and changes in technology. Within the data center, it isn’t always evident where spare capacity exists or easy to project when the facility will run out of power and space.

Data center personnel do not always have the tools to understand current capacity and are not always able to determine when additional capacity is required. Data center managers need to determine the optimum location to install new equipment and need to be aware of which devices and applications are responsible for the increased pressure to develop accurate capacity plans.

In order to achieve the highest possible data center utilization rates, whether that means reconfiguring some of the existing hardware, or simply installing it in currently empty racks, you need information that is both accurate and up to date. If you do not know exactly what you have and where stranded capacity lies, often times you end up buying your way out of capacity problems.

Solution

The Trellis Capacity Planning solution provides you software and services in a complete package - tailored to meet your business needs scalable to meet future needs. Through the bundled software and services solution, you are able to get up and running quickly and receiving the cost saving benefits you are looking for in a data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution.

The Trellis Capacity Planning solution gives you the tools to determine if existing hardware is meeting the company’s current needs, as well as providing a projection for future requirements. It also helps in identifying where there may be opportunities to consolidate, whether the existing infrastructure can support anticipated growth, and when additional resources will be required.

With the Trellis Capacity Planning solution, you are able to maintain a central device inventory including device details, de-rated values and unique properties. You are also able to identify the ideal location to place your devices, design and manage your floor layout, quickly search for your devices, and plan device placement for future projects.

Problem

Visibility to and management of health and status of available power and cooling systems is critical for ensuring IT availability for all data centers. Finding a centralized monitoring solution that meets the needs of data centers of every size is challenging. Most monitoring solutions offer a capability that is either a full complement of features, or is lacking some necessary features and capabilities. Businesses are looking for a solution that fits their data center needs both now and in the future, and are not interested in paying for something that is either lacking features or is over-featured for their needs.

Using multiple solutions to get information is cumbersome and inefficient, and will require the information to be stitched together to enable action or planning. Spending time searching for data in spreadsheets or other document formats is time consuming, error-prone and inefficient.
