Facility Features and Benefits
Facility Features and Benefits
Environet Facility's extensive features allow you to monitor facilities proactively rather than reactively. With Environet Facility you can recognize problem areas before they cause downtime.
Environet Facility Rack Manager allows users to manage racks in the data center on their own. Simply add the desired racks, identify and associate the power strips, branch circuits, or any other power or temperature readings. Get total power, load balance, high temperature and a variety of other user-definable calculations. In addition to defining rack calculations, users can now see a graphic on the rack view for each of their racks that depict calculations such as total power, load balance and temperature.
Tenant Billing Manager
The Environet Facility Tenant Billing Manager allows users to calculate power consumption and produce invoices for their clients, or ‘tenants’, based on real-time values. Peak and non-peak rates can be applied to accounts based on actual usage. The calendar feature of the Tenant Billing Manager allows users to apply special rates for different times of the day, certain holidays and other user-defined time periods. This module integrates seamlessly with Environet Facility. It can be added to a station easily and configured by the user.
Alarm Notes and Instructions
Users can make notes on alarms that can be viewed by other users and give instructions about the status of an alarm or what needs to be done to remedy an issue.
Drill Down Alarm Grouping
Environet Facility groups repeat alarms into one easily accessed drill down menu item. Users can quickly view all alarms associated with specific trigger conditions.
User-defined Alarm Thresholds
Users can set alarm thresholds based on their requirements and Environet Facility will send warnings if an alarm condition is close to being triggered.
Email, SNMP Trap or SMS Notification
Environet Facility can notify users via email or text when an alarm condition is met. Users can access the system remotely to acknowledge alarms.

Energy Cost Analysis
Analyzes how much energy your system uses and areas where energy costs can be saved.
Automatically generates required reports saving you time, while decreasing human error associated with running reports.
Event Analysis Reporting
Displays all data associated and recorded for a given event. View data before, during and after the event occurred.
Key Performance Indicators
Increases facility efficiency so you fully realize your return on investment.
Power Capacity Planning
Measures real time power consumption and graphically shows the impact on power capacity. Helps when considering potential expansion and consolidation projects. Impacts can be viewed on all critical power systems through the one-line drawing.
Data Center Documentation Storage
Stores documents associated with equipment, processes, warranties and more so you have centralized access to all essential information for your system.
Tracks the most commonly used data center efficiency metrics PUE/DCiE in real time. These metrics act as baseline measurements for implementing greener data center practices. The PUE/DCiE values provide the ability to visualize efficiency improvements in a data center and quantify the results in real time. Learn more about PUE/DCiE metrics at The Green Grid.
Shows the most pertinent information per user based on individual responsibilities for faster, more efficient data collection.
