Wholesale colocation provider STACK Infrastructure has teamed up with Modius to create a real-time global data center monitoring and control platform.
Modius was discovered and chosen by STACK as a “best-in-class” solution that combines CRM service profiles with DCIM telemetry and health-state data in a single pane of glass, allowing clients and operations teams complete transparency.
The Modius solution was integrated into a variety of legacy building management systems as well as new construction sites as part of the rollout. Modius provides basic monitoring and analytics functions, as well as its novel Electrical Power Monitoring System (EPMS) for visualizing essential power infrastructure, for the new building sites. Modius also collaborated with STACK to standardize EPMS graphical representations, reporting, dashboards, and alarm routing to ensure consistency across data center locations.
OpenData DCIM Solution
“STACK challenged us to deliver an industry-leading solution with new capabilities while meeting standards of quality, flexibility, and scale,” said Craig Compiano, President and CEO at Modius. “By leveraging the configuration elements of OpenData, the Modius Services team was able to customize the solution to meet STACK’s stringent requirements while maintaining project schedules, commissioning mandates, and cost-effective budgets.”
STACK’s fully-featured client portal interfaces with the Modius OpenData DCIM for total transparency provided in real-time, in support of client ESG objectives and STACK’s commitment to delivering “unrivaled” access to operating telemetry and data. The bi-directional interface between Modius OpenData and STACK’s “bespoke” CRM solution completes an OSS/BSS architecture, while the jointly built REST API gives clients real-time access into equipment health, historical capacity trends, and operational KPIs.
“The Modius team demonstrated deep technical skills in support of this complex project while navigating an aggressive timeline and demanding operational expectations,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at STACK Infrastructure. “By customizing a plug and play solution, we were able to optimize the implementation process and improved our time to market. We are pleased with our decision to engage Modius and implement its OpenData DCIM solution which further underscores STACK’s commitment to innovation on behalf of our current and future clients.”
