Schneider Electric partners with Intel for StruxureWare product module

Industry leaders collaborate on datacentre infrastructure management software

Schneider Electric has turned to Intel’s Virtual Gateway technology for its latest datacentre infrastructure management (DCIM) software.

This new product module for StruxureWare Datacentre Operation is designed to reduce costs at datacentres by eliminating the need for hardware, streamlining access, troubleshooting and control of multiple assets and servers in the process.

Schneider Electric enterprise management and software vice-president, Soeren Jensen, said the StruxureWare module is designed to provide full server lifecycle access and power cycling for remote management.

“We view server access as an important component to improving energy efficiency in data centres and facilities,” he said.

Cost saving partnership

While KVM [keyboard video mouse] switches provide remote access to and can control multiple servers, Jensen said software KVM technology eliminates the hardware and can reduce technology costs by up to 50 percent.

“By partnering with Intel, we’re continuing to bridge the gap between IT and facilities by providing an integrated software KVM and DCIM approach for managing the datacentre,” he said.

Intel datacentre solutions general manager Jeff Klaus said the collaboration with Schneider Electric will assist datacentres in further eliminating unnecessary hardware costs.

“Virtual Gateway is an extension of Intel’s DCM [Datacentre Manager] software, and provides important technological advances for our middleware,” he said.
