FLOWSTER DCS (Datacenter Shutdown) is a software solution with which datacenters can be intentionally shut down in an emergency or for maintenance purposes, taking consideration for system dependencies. The shut down can be executed manually or on the basis of, e.g. SNMP sensors. Incorporation into existing monitoring solutions is also possible. FLOWSTER DCS can be configured with the help of a management website, thus allowing for individual adjustments to your own requirements.
MORE TIME FOR THE ESSENTIALS
Modern solutions range from manual to script-based shut downs, but one thing is clear – growing requirements, specified by both lawmakers and clients of datacenter businesses, are no longer attainable using past solutions. Datacenter managers require, however, a more flexible, scalable, cross-system, automated, and safe solution that can hold up to certifications and audits.
By simply prioritizing groups by Drag & Drop it is always clear which machines are shut down in which order.
Full logging and comprehensive reporting ensures an objectively verifiable system shutdown.
The matured workflow technology ensures optimal integration into existing security concepts.
Whether you are managing a manageable system or a large data center, you are able connect systems of any size.
No matter how heterogeneous your system is, everything can be controlled by prepackaged modules or self-created scripts.
The logical and modular structure
iprovides a high level of flexibility and customizability.
The first step of a project with DCS begins with a 1-3 day workshop at your location, during which your individual needs and systems are considered. Within this framework you, together with an automation specialist, develop the shutdown logics.
CONCEPT AND IMPLEMENTATION
The next step involves the drafting of a fitting, overall concept. Together with you we will map out the developed shutdown logic directly in the software tool via the appropriate web console from FLOWSTER DCS. Finally we will run several sub-tests on the system.
TEST AND SUPPORT
Your project with FLOWSTER DCS ends with a final, all-encompassing test. To guarantee the subsequent error-free use of DCS, our experts will fully instruct your employees and introduce them to the software tool.
