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.

Modius OpenData integrates with Oper8’s existing IoT Gateways and Oper8 EMS appliances to enable new and existing customers enhanced data centre management options.  “The challenges in delivering visibility of the full range of data centre infrastructure systems across multiple locations, whether colocation or edge and remote sites, has been solved with the integration of Modius OpenData into Oper8’s solutions. 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.  Importantly the Modius solution complements and integrates with Oper8’s technology partner solutions from RFCode, CPI, Socomec and enlogic, while offering enhanced low bandwidth data aggregation for multiprotocol system monitoring at remote sites.
