Thermal Optimization

Cooling accounts for the largest part of electrical energy consumption in data centers after IT. Our integrated management solutions and services can monitor and manage your data center cooling systems and related air flows. This helps to safeguard continuous and efficient operations. We help you approach cooling from all angles — by leveraging the expertise of our technicians or experienced industry partners, we increase thermal reliability, optimize equipment maintenance and reduce operational costs.

Benefits of Thermal Optimization

With comprehensive solutions we deliver a customized package of optimization measures for the thermal optimization of your data center, including end-to-end project delivery.

Power matters: Uptime is crucial for data centers

Data centers have to protect valuable and critical data around the clock, 365 days a year. While data centers focus on storing and processing data, electrical power is not core business – but it is one of the main cost components and it must ensure availability as close to 100 percent as possible. That’s why power matters. Finding solutions to provide absolutely stable, reliable, and efficient power supply is a crucial factor for the economic operation of data centers. With Totally Integrated Power, Siemens comprises a complete portfolio that enables maximum availability and reliability, tailored towards the specific needs of data centers of any size, while providing outstanding energy efficiency.

The direct path to highest performance

For the vast majority of businesses, data centers are critical facilities that face many different challenges. Complex server rooms need secure power supply for cooling units and air conditioning running 24/7. Protecting critical data, ensuring uptime, and availability of service are of equal importance. The Totally Integrated Power portfolio covers the complete load flow including all elements of electricity supply and certified solutions for the safety of operator and equipment, as well as cyber security at the highest level. In addition, an easy connection to automation in buildings enables integration into the building IT system of a data center.

Fire safety in data centers: maximum availability

Data centers are the world’s digital backbone, and countless users rely on the information stored in them. Our fast-paced society expects this information to be accessible anywhere and at any time, and even the shortest of downtimes can have considerable financial consequences. Minimizing the risk of fire damage is therefore a top priority: Reliably detecting incipient fires as early as possible and the quick activation of appropriate response measures are key pre-requisites in ensuring maximum system availability. Our state-of-the-art fire safety portfolio can help you keep your data center up and running.

Security for data centers: maximum business continuity   

From perimeter protection, gate control and intrusion detection, to access control and visitor management, our extensive portfolio helps protect data centers against a host of security threats. To begin, we draw up a strategy based on expert assessments in which vulnerabilities are identified. A security management system should be easy to operate, so all systems are integrated with a user-friendly interface that increases visibility, responsiveness, and control. With smart planning and expert technology, Siemens helps you to protect the operational processes of your data center and ensure business continuity.

Infrastructure Management : integrated Data Center Management Suite  

Data management has become one of the pillars of our economy. As result, the protection and operation of data center infrastructure is critical. Transparency is essential for safe and reliable operations – and so is a standard set of management tools for IT and facility infrastructure. This is exactly what IDCMS provides: with its integrated approach to infrastructure management, it covers operational processes from end to end.

An integrated management approach for full data center transparency

IDCMS is a holistic infrastructure management approach that integrates functionalities of Building Management Systems (BMS), Energy Power Management Systems (EPMS) and Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). In regard to the latter, that includes among others CFD, workflows, cable and asset management, and advisory and performance services.  Additionally, the IDCMS from Siemens also allows you to integrate existing third-party applications. 

 

IDCMS is modular and scalable. You decide which infrastructure management disciplines you need and when to implement them. IDCMS goes with your needs and grows with your success.
