Features & Benefits:

Features:

Features:
Encrypted communications 128 Bit, SSL encrypted communications between client and server, as well as encrypted user IDs and passwords stored on the server to help protect your resources
Custom mapping Custom backgrounds, unique user-assignable icons, and drag-and-drop device placement make it easy to identify problem devices at a glance, minimizing downtime, errors, and cost.
Capacity Manager add-on application Planning and optimizing actual power, cooling and rack capacities via shared data center model, enabling efficient equipment provisioning and right-sizing of your data center.
Integrated data storage InfraStruXure Central ships with internal storage for data and video collection. Additional storage can easily be made available using the built-in Network Attached Storage server support for long-term storage and archiving.
Centralized Management Simplify management of the physical infrastructure using a centralized repository accessible from anywhere on the network through a powerful and easy-to-use console application.
Change Manager add-on application Easily track and execute moves, adds and changes of equipment in the data center via the shared data center model.
Custom reporting Create, save and schedule user-defined reports for ease of data collection, distribution and analysis.
Alarm filters Customize the user interface to display devices in critical, warning or normal device statuses.
Mass firmware update Decrease set-up time and complexity of managed devices by simultaneously upgrading firmware for multiple APC devices.
Unified console Customizable Windows and Linux client application enables instant access to InfraStruXure Central application from anywhere on the network.
Private networking Reduce IP addresses needed on the public network to manage devices, by placing them on an isolated secure network.
Surveillance add-on application Enhance visibility of your critical assets with physical threat management to monitor and record all activity in secured areas. A centralized repository allows the user to review, search and tag surveillance events for future needs.
Centralized Alert Repository Access historical alerts from several appliances through one central database. Sort alerts by type, date, appliance, and/or device group.
Extendable architecture Available node and application license keys extend the capabilities of the platform allowing it to grow to meet changing business needs.
Remote monitoring support Web-based service that serves as a second set of eyes into the health of a company's physical infrastructure. Experienced professionals work non-stop to provide 24-hour monitoring and to help diagnose problems before they become critical.
Multi-vendor device support Extensive multi-vendor support for monitoring networked SNMP devices. Enable visibility of existing SNMP devices through threshold alert notifications, data trending and reporting.
Customizable user access Define user access and viewing capabilities to individual groups. Control access to devices by administrator-defined user accounts. Additional user access can be managed by using the built-in LDAP and Active Directory Support.
Fault notification Real-time event notification minimizes response times to critical physical infrastructure situations. Enables IT Administrators to reduce mean time to repair, improve efficiency, and maximize uptime. Receive alerts via mobile phones (SMS), Web applications (HTTP Post), and e-mail.
Auto-discovery Reduces the time needed to install and deploy physical infrastructure devices by automatically detecting manageable devices on your network.
Graphical trending analysis Access current and historic data for any device or group of devices. Plot and graph multiple data points in a logical correlation to visualize potential hazardous trends.
Free text search Quickly locate devices and alerts through the free search field.
Real-time monitoring Immediate visibility to your entire physical infrastructure through centralized, real-time device monitoring and notification enabling quick assessment of events as they occur.
