MC Panduit Launches Smart Zone Cloud Next Generation DCIM Solution 1 400 Copy

June 22, 2022

 

Panduit Corp. announces the launch of SmartZone™ Cloud Software, an enhanced cloud-based application that integrates power and environmental monitoring with asset management, rack access, and connectivity management. Datacenter operations can now monitor resources and make informed decisions related to the ever-changing critical infrastructure from any authorized device worldwide. 

SmartZone Cloud is a subscription-based offering with a unique and price competitive license model that includes multi-protocol, vendor-neutral power and environmental monitoring, asset management and capacity planning features, and unlimited users and locations, regardless of the number of licenses.

With real-time monitoring and alarm notification, 3D visualization, as well as dashboard and reporting of key attributes across the digital infrastructure, stakeholders gain accurate, automated, and centralized visibility into the hybrid IT environment to meet the demanding needs of remote management and end-to-end service level agreements.

The software is aligned with the Panduit SmartZone™ PDU and SmartZone™ UPS to bring a visual representation of rack-level power, environmental, and rack access. In addition, the power path enables operators to identify a single point of failure, reduce overprovisioning, and to clearly assess risk levels.

“Customers today are demanding unique experiences in highly secure environments that can be achieved by leveraging the infrastructure and technologies from a true cloud-native software,” says SmartZone Cloud senior software product manager Victor Medina. “Our SmartZone Cloud solution can address customer demands with its responsive web design, high availability and redundancy, quick deployment with instant software updates, data encryption, multiple authentications and permission levels with a complete audit log, and a fully documented API.”

SmartZone Cloud is part of the Panduit Intelligent Infrastructure portfolio that provides seamless flexibility to meet the growing demand for hybrid IT, encompassing the digital infrastructure of cloud, on-premises, multi-tenant, and edge data center deployments.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
