Paladin WSM – Improving White Space Management

Paladin WSM integrates facilities and IT technology to improve the management of Power, Space, and Cooling – three areas that have historically been difficult to get right in the white space area of the data center. Paladin WSM gives you practical tools to address these challenges where they matter most: at your remote power panels, your racks, and in the cooling system.

RPP Manager automates the configuration and operation of power panels in the data center. It greatly simplifies the management of panel schedules and power at the branch-circuit level and can link to monitoring, billing, and asset management systems – virtually any repository of customer data.

Rack Manager facilitates the necessary coordination between IT and facilities – at the rack level and in real time. It shows the available spaces in the rack, what is installed, the power load for the installed devices, the manufacturer’s specifications, and the actual power consumption (with rack power monitoring).

Heat Map Visualizer adds a dynamic, animated heat map as a semi-transparent layer over any view of the data center. It provides X/Y coordinates corresponding to the location of temperature sensors in the white space, and allows facilities and IT to immediately adjust conditioning air to avoid the hot spots that can affect asset performance and life.

Power Analytics designed Paladin WSM to help data center managers optimize their usable physical space – practically.
