StruxureWare Solutions

Oper8 is pleased to be recognised as a Schneider-Electric Advanced Software Partner in the Asia Pacific Region.

Offering solutions, both on-premise and hosted ‘as a service‘, Oper8 can deliver a DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) system combining one or both of:

  • StruxureWare Data Center Expert
  • StruxureWare Data Center Operations (and associated add-on modules)

Management & Visibility

The dynamic data centre has hundreds of data points reporting on availability, temperature, airflow, humidity, leaks and security. Sifting through the data is time consuming and it can be difficult to discover any emerging trends, let alone gain visibility into the current health of the data centre.

With instant fault notification and escalation, timely resolution of critical infrastructure issues impacting the operational performance of your data centre can be quickly actioned. Combined with user-defined reporting, graphs and dashboards, visibility of your mission critical infrastructure and systems enables more accurate change management, capacity planning, and asset management.

Deployment Options

As a Schneider-Electric Advanced Software Partner, Oper8 has been deploying and supporting two primary deployment options for our customers. Traditional StruxureWare licenses can be purchased with annual maintenance fees, while Oper8’s unique StruxureWare as a Service can be aligned to your cashflow, data centre growth, and move CAPEX to OPEX for your DCIM solution.
