Siemens announces the launch of a new data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution, Datacenter Clarity LC™, which bridges the gap between IT and facility management, allowing for smarter decision making and optimized efficiencies using proven technologies.
Thisexciting solution is Siemens’ first offering in the DCIM space and an important milestone for its increased focus into the broader data center arena. The growing need to efficiently house data in a secure, reliable and resilient environment leverages Siemens’ core areas of expertise.
“Not many companies can match us when it comes to providing and integrating all of the technologies and services needed for today’s data centers,” said John Kovach, Siemens’ new global head of Data Centers. “We truly believe that we are the only company that can provide such a broad foundation of proven experience.”
With Datacenter Clarity LC™, Siemens has merged two of its proven powerhouse strengths: Siemens’ renowned integration and management capabilities across an entire portfolio of technologies within an enterprise, and a complete data center-specific software suite built upon Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software. The Siemens PLM software has more than seven million licensees deployed globally, many in mission critical industries. For example, NASA used the software to digitally design, simulate, analyze and assemble the entire Mars Rover Curiosity, contributing to a successful landing on Mars this past August.
Datacenter Clarity LC™ was received very positively by attendees when recently previewed at the 2012 Gartner Data Center Conference in December.
“While other companies are trying to piecemeal or patchwork disparate platforms together, we’re able to come in with a complete, proven, scalable platform based on proven technologies already being used in the field,” explained Kovach. “And when you consider our global depth and expertise, you’ll see that Siemens is one of the few companies with the technical capability to successfully execute in any data center environment – almost anywhere in the world.”
