Honeywell launched its Data Center Suite, a portfolio of outcome-based software solutions that help data center managers and owners optimize uptime, worker productivity, critical asset health, and operational expenses while providing better visibility into sustainability KPIs. 

By digitalizing, aggregating, and analyzing disparate critical systems into a unified data lake, the analytics produced by the on-premises Data Center Suite provides operators more holistic, actionable information to help boost efficiency and decrease costs. Based on the open architecture Niagara Framework, it combines data from both operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) infrastructure, securely enhancing situational awareness at site level as well as global fleet level, enabling condition-based maintenance to reduce downtime risk and operational expenses.

The Honeywell Data Center Suite’s tools include:

  • Data Center Manager to deliver situational site-level awareness of both OT (critical power and thermal assets) and critical IT asset data in a vendor-agnostic dashboard.
  • Portfolio View to enable data center owners to monitor global network operations holistically via an on-premises tool across a fleet of data centers and make data-driven decisions to better achieve their uptime and sustainability goals.
  • Honeywell Forge Digitized Maintenance, a software-as-a-service solution that monitors data center assets and detects early signs of anomalous intrinsic operations before it leads to potentially costly downtime. 

“Demand for data storage, transfer, and processing is insatiable worldwide, which makes it more challenging than ever to run and scale these facilities effectively from a design, build, and operations perspective,” said Chris McLaughlin, vice president of offering management, Honeywell Building Technologies. “Honeywell is expanding its offerings in data centers to allow facility managers to derive actionable insights securely from their own data to help protect uptime, manage maintenance, reduce energy use and achieve scaling agility.”
