Modius Partners with Oper8 and Oper8 Global to Improve Data Centre & Edge Visibility

Oper8 and Oper8 Global incorporate the Modius platform into their Data Centre Operations and Maintenance solutions.

Brisbane, Australia, 7 May 2020 – Modius announced today that it has formed solution reseller partnerships with Oper8 Pty Ltd (Oper8) and Oper8 Global Ltd (Oper8 Global) to deploy and support customer data centre management solutions.

The relationship will see the Modius OpenData platform integrated into Oper8’s Data Centre Operations and Maintenance solutions and services, with Oper8 and Oper8 Global supporting Modius Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) customers across their respective regions.

Oper8 supports customers across the Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands region, with Oper8 Global covering EMEA and Latin America.

The relationship increases the ability to source fully integrated and supported multi-protocol DCIM solutions with enhanced web enabled visibility of customer data centres across global time zones.

Data centres deliver the key underpinning infrastructure enabling business critical cloud services, data centre colocation facilities, corporate IT systems, and local compute, data storage and analytics.

As currently being observed under the social restrictions resulting from COVID-19, the world economy is reliant on cloud and other data centre delivered platforms, while core connection points for the internet are delivered through data centres.

Knowing how data centres are operating and seeing potential issues before they occur helps to ensure unexpected service impacting downtime events do not occur.

As emerging technologies centred on IoT, AI and enhanced video analytics require local processing at the edge of the cloud, reliance on consistent visibility of the data centre stack becomes even more critical for business.

“Modius offers a highly scalable, reliable and secure solution which can be deployed at 1, 10, or 10,000 locations with equivalent performance to manage the availability, capacity and efficiency of mission critical facilities. We are thrilled to team with Oper8 and Oper8 Global in providing their customers with enhanced visibility, streamlined product support and great customer service,” said Craig Compiano, President of Modius.

Customers can now deploy real-time multi-protocol monitoring in any sized data centre through a centralized web enabled portal, providing visibility to global operations, all in a single pain of glass.” noted Mike Andrea, Managing Director, Oper8.
