Schneider Electric launches energy management solution EcoStruxure IT portfolio

Schneider Electric has announced the modernisation of its Eco­Struxure IT software portfolio for monitoring and managing sprawling, hybrid IT infrastructure, which has become inc­reasingly complex in the past few years. EcoStruxure IT moder­n­ises the monitoring, management, planning and modelling of physical IT infrastructure. It offers flexible deployment op­tions, including on-premises and cloud-based solutions to support hybrid, distributed IT environments, ranging from a few sites to thousands of sites globally. As IT infrastructure continues to expand, business continuity is dependent on aspects rang­ing from the smallest endpoint to the largest data centre. There­fore, edge deployments are now considered as mission-critical as centralised data centres, necessitating new software too­ls to maintain the resiliency and security of the infrastructure. Addi­tionally, sustainability is emerging as another significant trend, requiring the measurement and management of a com­pany’s data centres’ energy consumption and carbon footprint.
