Cooling Optimize reduces thermal risk, increases operational insights, and delivers an instant ROI

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, announced a partnership with Vigilent to deliver Data Center Operation: Cooling Optimize, an add-on module for Schneider Electric’s Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) offer, StruxureWare™ for Data Centers. The enhancement uses closed loop control along with sophisticated monitoring and analysis capabilities to enable data centers to automatically self-correct issues with temperature and air flow, providing managers with improved control over operations.


“Data center managers are increasingly looking for opportunities to take action on the information they gather from their data center,” said Soeren Jensen, Vice President, Enterprise Management and Software, Schneider Electric. “By leveraging Vigilent’s industry-leading technology to deliver advanced insight into and enhanced control of data center cooling, we are providing both facilities and IT with actionable intelligence for an ideal balance of high availability and peak efficiency throughout the entire data center lifecycle.”

Cooling Optimize Key Benefits

  • Instant results: From the moment the system goes live, dynamic cooling control, improved thermal conditions, and energy savings are immediate.
  • Risk mitigation: Up to 95% of hotspots are automatically resolved, and data is provided to help facility managers diagnose trickier issues.  The system also includes robust fail-safes and alarms.
  • Cost savings: Up to 40% of cooling energy costs are eliminated by delivering all necessary cooling with the lowest possible energy use.
  • Increased capacity:  Stranded cooling capacity is identified and unlocked, allowing facilities to handle increased IT load.
  • Extended equipment lifecycles: Since cooling equipment is used more effectively and efficiently, it lasts longer and requires less maintenance.
