"We now haven't had an outage in over a decade."
Scott J - Design Engineer
COMPANY:
Withheld
COMPANY TYPE:
Withheld
# OF EMPLOYEES:
5001-10,000 employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
Withheld
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: Where we previously feared HVAC failures in the summer and breakers popping after a blade enclosure lights up, we now have eyes on exactly where the levels are for temperature and power. We see real time stats and trends that allow us to manage capacity and future growth as well.

PROS: Detailed granular data that was previously unavailable. The metrics are popular with the suits, and the Minority Report style pregoc info shows me where the hot spots are, where the breakers are inching towards popping, and where one of my CRAC units is starting to slack off. My primary data center used to be something dangerous you'd see William Shattner barely surviving on Star Trek. We now haven't had an outage in over a decade. I've rolled this out to over 50 of our sites, across the US, AUS, MEX, and CAN with plans to hit all the rest of them later. Local IT staff enjoys the new functionality as well - they each support multiple sites, so the ability to relax about power and HVAC is enormously empowering.

CONS: I wish the dashboards offered a few more eye candy charts - but this isn't a dog either. Armchair quarterbacks like eye candy and are impressed easily.

"After demonstrations and comparison to 6 other competitors, Sunbird products stood out well above the rest."
Greg Brown - Project Manager
COMPANY:
Delta Dental of Michigan
COMPANY TYPE:
Insurance
# OF EMPLOYEES:
201-500 employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
6-12 months
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: The overall experience has been great. In many implementations with software and other DCIM providers this has by far been the best experience we have had. The support is quick and direct, usually solving issues and answering questions on the first contact and typically in the same day. The team members providing instruction in remote sessions were knowledgeable and took the time to make sure we understood the functionality and how to repeat it. The product is great and fits all of our requirements; where there was not a direct process for an integration with other tools, the Sunbird team was quick to assist. The Sunbird software is easy to use, integrates with other products easily and the GUI is very clean. After demonstrations and comparison to 6 other competitors, Sunbird products stood out well above the rest.

PROS: What we like most about Sunbird's DCIM solution is the integration between dcTracks and PowerIQ along with the great features, detailed user interface and ease of use. The software is setup in a way that is very intuitive to use and just as easy to implement from image to production use. The implementation/proof of concept team was great to work with. The weekly sessions made sure we were able to achieve all our requirements and not only assisted in setting up the software but showed the team how accomplish the tasks on our own so that we could replicate and update our data as needed.

CONS: At this point there is not much that we dislike about the software. It contains all the features and ease of use we expected; and more. We would like an additional feature for integration with server cabinet door locks to see the status; if they were open/closed and who accessed the rack based on badge. The way the integration currently works is to send an alert when triggered but doesn't fully meet what we would like to accomplish.
