The One-Stop DCIM Solution.
Since 2007, Sunbird products are being used globally by 1,650+ customers across hundreds of thousands of racks, managing millions of assets, and monitoring billions of data points each and every day.
See floor PDUs, branch circuit panels, UPSs and CRAC units. Map physical relationships between all of these devices and see how the entire power and network chain in the data center is connected down to the port level.
Accurate real-time views of your entire data center including servers, storage, networking equipment, rack PDUs, patch panels and applications.
"It’s our source of truth for what’s in the data centers."
Engineer II Data Center Infrastructure Systems
Sunbird's dcTrack DCIM Solution provides you with complete, accurate views of capacity, including physical space, power and network ports available in racks, plus the capacity of infrastructure devices like UPSs, CRACs, and circuit panels.
With a centralized database that includes all connection and capacity information, you no longer need to run back and forth to the data center.
Reduce work order inaccuracy or missing information, ensure work orders are assigned to people with appropriate skills, and reduce workflow delays and bottlenecks.
Maintain best practices, improve operational efficiency, and people productivity.
Powerful and intelligent tools for workflow automation enable you to generate change requests, automate device moves, and maintain a complete audit trail of requests and work orders for compliance.
"This tool is indispensable for the administration of your own datacenters and each piece of hardware built-in there."
With built in ASHRAE cooling charts and Smart Rack views, Power IQ monitors and measures all the energy usage in your facility including building meters, UPSs, Floor PDUs, RPPs, busways, and intelligent rack PDU’s. Increase data center temperature without risk, calculate Green Grid’s PUE Level 1, 2 and 3, and drive your green data center and sustainability initiatives with bill-back reports.
Understand what is drawing energy in your facility and find ways to save – while maintaining a safe environment for your IT equipment.
"The product is extremely useful when trying to determine overall facility power consumption."

NOAA Storm Prediction Center
Our DCIM monitoring solution combines the power of Raritan’s or any third party intelligent rack PDUs and environment management appliances, providing up to the minute information from temperature, humidity, air flow, air pressure, smoke, water, and contact closure sensors. See trends, get alerts, save energy, and increase uptime.
Sunbird offers a complete environment management solution that not only helps you identify potential trouble areas like hot spots and overcooling, but also helps you save energy while maintaining an optimal data center environment.
"I have been able to easily keep an eye on all power, temperature, and humidity statuses for all my hardware locations."
Data Center Technician
Our enterprise class power monitoring software has been battle-tested in some of the largest data centers in the industry collecting 1 billion data points a day. An open and vendor agnostic solution that gathers data from building meters, UPS, busways, branch circuits, floor PDU's, RPPs, and rack PDUs, Sunbird DCIM Monitoring provides an intuitive configurable dashboard, locates stranded power, and improves data center uptime.
See how much power you're using at a moment's notice, down to individual servers, when coupled with intelligent rack PDUs with individual outlet metering.
"We like the ability within Power IQ to control our vendor agnostic managed rack power strips."
