EkkoSense has announced a major new release of its award-winning SaaS solution. EkkoSoft Critical 8.0 introduces consolidated estate / enterprise dashboard views to optimise thermal, power, and capacity management across extended data centre estates. In addition, new embedded reporting capabilities will enable data centre operations teams to automate production of ESG and sustainability reports and metrics at a fraction of the time and cost of legacy DCIM and BMS approaches, ready for the upcoming EU deadlines.
“EkkoSoft Critical solves a business challenge for global colocation service providers tasked with delivering regular ESG and sustainability reports to their thousands of customers demanding frequent ESG Scope 3 reporting,” said Paul Milburn, Chief Product Officer for EkkoSense.
“EkkoSoft Critical is an early leader in introducing AI and Machine Learning technology into data centre optimisation, with software that provides industry leaders with intuitive 3D monitoring and visualisation, AI-enabled evaluation and analytics, and comprehensive capacity management support.”
EkkoSoft Critical 8.0 enables operations teams to quickly navigate from estate to site to floor to room, with the ability to clearly differentiate between all data halls, plant rooms, and edge sites. Performance trending and comparison tools support the analysis of any changes in thermal performance, site and room power usage, as well as full capacity utilisation updates. Additionally, a series of thermal, faults, alarms, sensor, and connectivity alerts help in keeping teams aware of any potential operational issues that need addressing across their estate, a key requirement given current data centre resourcing challenges.
“We are solving an industry challenge by launching a highly effective real-time embedded ESG reporting solution,” explained EkkoSense’s CEO Dean Boyle. “Previously, the alternatives were expensive custom reporting solutions that took months to develop and implement. Given EkkoSense’s proven ability to fast-track cooling energy savings, EkkoSoft Critical 8.0 – with its ESG reporting capability – will provide full ROI extremely quickly.”
Jon deRidder, CEO at DP Guardian, an EkkoSense Select Installation Partner for North America with over 30 years’ proven data centre critical infrastructure expertise, added: “EkkoSoft Critical already represents a smart choice for the growing number of organisations looking to reduce energy usage and cut carbon as part of their corporate ESG initiatives. EkkoSense’s latest 8.0 release takes things much further, supporting data centre operations teams across their enterprise deployments while also offering the opportunity for truly automated and real-time ESG reporting.”
