Belden Improves Data Center Efficiency and Management with Cormant-CS DCIM Solution

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has enhanced its data center offering with the Cormant-CS data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution. Offered through a partnership with Cormant, a leading provider of infrastructure management solutions, Cormant-CS allows data center customers to monitor and manage asset, infrastructure and environmental information, and power and data connectivity in real-time for improved efficiency and uptime.

“Data centers encompass more physical and virtual assets and consume more power than ever before, making them far more complex than they were just five years ago,” says Michael Salvador, technical solutions manager for Belden. “To improve operational efficiency, minimize risk of downtime and effectively plan for the future, data centers need complete visibility, control and management of data center assets, capacity and environmental requirements.”

“By combining Belden’s leadership in data connectivity solutions with Cormant’s pure-play expertise in DCIM, we offer a world-leading combined solution to customers,” says Paul Goodison, CEO of Cormant, “The partnership has already yielded successful customers in multiple countries and that is just the beginning for this relationship.”

Ideal for medium to global-scale data centers and enterprise and campus network infrastructures, Cormant-CS is a professional approach to infrastructure management that offers the following:

  • Asset management of network and server equipment and components for improved
    inventory and deployment planning
  • Connectivity visibility to see where equipment is located, what it’s connected to
    and how it’s connected
  • Monitoring and reporting of power, environmental factors, network capacity and trends
  • Planning and forecasting with full view of data center floor plans and rack-level detail,
    historical data analysis and the ability to generate “what-if” scenarios
  • Work flow management for efficient deployment, reconfigurations and recording of test data

Featuring an easy, user-configurable interface, the Cormant-CS DCIM solution is based on open standards with a full read-write application programming interface that enables easy integration with other systems and flexibility to suit a variety of specific needs. The system’s barcode scanning and mobility with full tablet support facilitates implementation of data center assets and ongoing accurate system maintenance. Cormant-CS also seamlessly integrates with a variety of Belden DCIM-ready solutions, including Traceable patch cords, intelligent power distribution units, cabinet access control systems and the Adaptive Enclosure Heat Containment system that monitors cabinet heat load and temperature.

The Cormant-CS DCIM solution is backed by on-going software upgrade assurance and technical support with a variety of available services, including configuration, data importation, training and auditing. For more information about Cormant-CS, visit http://info.belden.com/cormant-dcim.
