Geist has announced version 4.8 of Environet, its data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software. Environet is best known for exceptional real time monitoring of data center equipment in facilities ranging from hyperscale to edge environments.
Environet 4.8 offers faster and more intuitive access to comprehensive data center metrics through a streamlined user interface featuring improved navigation and visualizations. The new version also adds HTML compatibility, expanding its range of supported browser platforms.
These new features include more granular device control for maintenance procedures and enhanced tenant power management. The improved maintenance control reduces the number of nuisance alarms by inhibiting the alerting function for a device with a known maintenance event. In addition, the maintenance manager tracks previous activities, keeping a historical record of the work completed on each piece of equipment. Expansions to tenant management capability ties power use to individual tenants on a day-to-day or month-to-month basis, making point-in-time and historical power data use more transparent and trackable. This data can be exported to a billing system, simplifying billing and SLA compliance for both the tenant and service providers.
Environet 4.8 is available immediately and is a free upgrade to customers with a current support contract.
