"Sunbird DCIM products are user friendly and very scalable"
Tony Ferello - Data Center Manager
COMPANY:
Dow Jones
COMPANY TYPE:
Newspapers
# OF EMPLOYEES:
1001-5000 employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
2+ years
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: We were able to do precise monthly charge-backs to clients for colocation services which was crucial to the client agreement. We have nice historical views of power usage as well for all our sites using intelligent rack PDUs and we even connected the DCIM to our power and cooling infrastructure for alert monitoring benefits. Sunbird DCIM products are user friendly and very scalable for large or small datacenter deployments!

PROS: Pricing was clear cut and scaled easily with license packs as needed. The tools are very intuitive and user friendly. We were up and running, tracking power in a few days.

CONS: Don't have many cons. We've used the product for a few years now and it's a stable and reliable tool for our datacenter management team.

"Deploying devices is so much easier to perform"
Dave DeFrancisco - Deployment Engineer
COMPANY:
Comcast
COMPANY TYPE:
Entertainment
# OF EMPLOYEES:
10,001+ employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
2+ years
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: Deploying devices is so much easier to perform with 100% accuracy. It organizes and centralizes information and it greatly aids in MACD.

PROS: The many visualizations such as device, cabinet and floor plan (including 3D) are quite valuable to me. With the cabinet views, I can "see" the best areas to place equipment within a cabinet without the need to be physically on site. Device views allow me to "show" installers where exactly the various device ports are located so they connect data cables correctly. The floor plan allows me to estimate distances so I can order cables of proper length. All of these views are invaluable to me since I support remote data centers.

CONS: That I still need to access Classic View to perform some functions.

RECOMMENDATIONS: To be able to access data panel port information from the GUI is great and I cannot wait for functions like Lists and Connectors to be moved there too.

"PowerIQ DCIM - the foundation of any top tier data center”
Scott Jeppsen - Withheld
COMPANY:
Withheld
COMPANY TYPE:
Agriculture
# OF EMPLOYEES:
5001-10000 Employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
2+ years
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: PowerIQ from Sunbird (formerly Raritan) has become a staple in our Data Center Management. We depend on it daily. We've been using this powerhouse for about a decade now with zero regrets. Unmatched features from the most innovative hardware/software company I've had the pleasure of dealing with will help you rest easy while your data center purrs like a happy cat.

PROS: It started off ahead of the pack, and it's stayed there with consistent updates from (wait for it) FEEDBACK FROM USERS. I love that. It's not a shiny ball that turns out to be an empty shell once you buy it. This stuff works.

CONS: The initial setup can be daunting, but this isn't 1990 anymore and we aren't rookies. Read the manual and install the product like a boss.
