Pilih DCIM atau intellegence Patch Panel ?



Complete control of your IT infrastructure leads to faster incident response, cost savings, increased staff availability, and automation of routine tasks. But “control” involves much more than managing data connectivity and patch panels. All equipment should be documented and managed throughout its lifecycle to provide a total view of the data center’s physical infrastructure.
Patch Panel
Active patching solutions (“intelligent” patching) document patches on the active patch panel and focus on data connectivity management; away from active panels, however, these solutions provide management through paper work orders. This requires multiple manual updates, and is subject to error.
DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) is an alternative to intelligent patch panels. Cormant-CS captures full information about the entire channel of connectivity, including infrastructure and assets. We’ve seen productivity and asset utilization increase by anywhere from 20% to 50% after deployment. Here are a few of its features, which separate it from intelligent patch panels.

Cormant-CS is an Excellent DCIM Choice


Cormant-CS DCIM
  • Mobility and Barcodes
  • Cormant-CS is fully mobile to make sure records are updated in real-time, ensuring data accuracy. Tablets and handheld computers support barcode and RFID scanning of cables. (For more on the importance of mobility to DCIM, look here.)
  • Improved Cost-to-Benefit Ratios
  • By maximizing the use of your entire infrastructure, you can potentially achieve millions in savings. The cost of Cormant-CS is typically 0.01% of the total cost of a data center or campus. Because active patch monitoring focuses only on structured cabling, this limits the savings it offers, and it costs between 20% and 35% of total structured cabling system costs. (Read this post for information about Getting Management to Approve DCIM.)
  • MACs in Physical IT Infrastructure
  • Cormant-CS’ combination of network, client, web and mobile components ensures extreme efficiency during connectivity and infrastructure changes, especially at the work area. All changes are made once, and are immediately documented on the handheld. This provides data confidence to improve speed and efficiency when planning further changes.
  • Cabling Independence
  • Completely configurable and independent of cabling vendors, you can document any cabling brand or connectivity type (including non-structured cabling). You’re never locked in to one vendor for panels and special patch cords, and you’re free to mix and match.
  • Integration
  • Unlike active patching systems, Cormant-CS exchanges data with other systems and hardware. The Cormant-CS web services XML API and SNMP/WMI/XML/CLI scripting engine come as part of the core product. With the built-in scripting engine c# and vb.net, scripts can be written to extend functionality, as well as to interact with network devices and services.
  • No Power or Additional Hardware
  • As a software/mobile solution, this IT infrastructure management tool doesn’t negatively impact environmental aspects of your data center. No additional planning is necessary to deploy.
  • Implementation
  • Cormant-CS can be implemented in new, existing or retrofit projects without downtime, conserving time and money. The software can even be installed to a virtual machine to speed up rollout. (Read our post on Implementing DCIM or our post with helpful DCIM Deployment Tips!)
  • Management of Real Problems
  • Cormant-CS users implement this solution to manage assets and connectivity, but also to manage power, heat, RU space, inventory, etc. – and all records are updated continuously.
  • No Spreadsheet Misery
  • All data is stored in a single database as a shared resource between groups. This allows direct access to the information each group needs, preventing wasted time and reducing workload.

Timer AC bergantian

Bagaimana sich prinsip kerja AC yang bergantian? Seperti yang terangkai pada ACPDB, yang kita butuhkan adalah 1 buah timer dan 2 buah kontaktor. Pada dasarnya rangkaiannya adalah seperti gambar diatas. Seperti kita ketahui, timer dan kontaktor akan bekerja apabila mendapatkan catuan 220 V. Pada timer catuan bisa dikoneksikan di lubang “L” dan “N”, sedang pada kontaktor dilubang “A1” dan “A2”. Itulah kenapa pada saat mati listrik komponen2 tersebut tidak bekerja. Timer berfungsi sebagai switch dari 2-1 atau 2-3 dan lubang “2” sebagai sumber yang dialiri arus listrik. Sesuai namanya alat ini akan bergantian dari 2-1 atau 2-3 berdasarkan waktu yang sudah kita atur pada sirip biru. Satu sirip merepresentasikan 30 menit. Sedang pada kontaktor untuk tipe Telemecanique, sumbu-sumbu saklarnya adalah 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, NO-NO, NC-NC.  Jika “A1” dan “A2” tidak dicatu maka 1-2 (open), 3-4 (open), 5-6 (open), NO-NO (open), NC-NC (close/terhubung). Dan bila “A1” dan “A2” dicatu  maka 1-2 (close), 3-4 (clo…

Berikut adalah contoh Panduan Standarisasi Area Data Center

PANDUAN - IK Standarisasi Area Data Center Article Number: 49 | Rating: Unrated | Last Updated: Mon, Nov 25, 2013 at 2:13 PM BAB I KEBIJAKAN
1.1.Area Data Center
Areadata center termasuk aset vital perusahaan dan diperlakukan sesuai dengan persyaratan yang telah ditetapkan dalam Sistem Manajemen Pengamanan Perusahaan.

Seksi Jaringan bertanggungjawab terhadap pengamanan fisik dan logik. sedangkan fungsi Sekuriti terhadap pengamanan fisik.


1.2.Pertimbangan Dalam Hal Penentuan Lokasi Area Data Center
Beberapa pertimbangan yang harus ada dalam menentukan lokasi ruang data center, yaitu :

1.Memungkinkan untuk pengembangan yang memadai, misalnya mempertimbangkan pengembangan untuk jangka waktu 5 (lima) tahun ke depan.
2.Mempertimbangkan ruang yang tidak "terlalu” banyak dilalui untuk operasional lain, namun tetap dapat dijangkau dengan mudah.
3.Memperhatikan aspek keamanan dan keselamatan pekerja.
4.Memenuhi persyaratan sebagaimana yang …

Mendesigns dan Menghitung UPS untuk Data Center

Mendesigns dan Menghitung UPS untuk Data Center UPS dan data center mungkin bisa di sebut sayur tanpa garam, hambar jika tidak saling melengkapi. 
Tapi untuk menentukan kebutuhan akan UPS data centerperlu perhitungan yang matang agar UPS dan server tetap awet dan selalu ON 24 jam. banyak sekali jenis UPS dan daya yang di tawarkan. Kita harus menghitung kebutuhan beban keseluruhan server agar ketika listrik down UPS dapat menghandle beberapa detik untuk listrik pindah ke genset begitu pula sebaliknya, Oke untuk menentukan itu semua tentukan dulu jenis UPS yang akan anda gunakan.
Oke kita sedikit belajar dulu tentang UPS :)
PRINSIP KERJA UPS Setiap PC membutuhkan daya listrik. Apabila aliran listrik (main power) terputus, PC akan mati (tidak berfungsi). Fungsi dasar UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) adalah menyediakan suplai listrik SEMENTARA ke beban (PC) tanpa terputus pada saat main power tidak bekerja agar seluruh proses dapat dihentikan dengan benar, seluruh data dapat disimpan den…
