Information management software & services for data centres

Complete information management for data centres

Effective asset information management is crucial for data centres to ensure the reliability and security of the IT infrastructure as well as optimise operations.

This need for granular data drives the demand for well articulated information requirements capturing detailed asset information from design, construction and into operation. Glider provides essential information management software and services for data centre clients and operators to communicate, capture, validate, organise, store and share data throughout the lifecycle of a data centre providing the essential Golden Thread of information.

Take control of complex data centre infrastructure

Improve asset visibility

Effective asset information management provides a comprehensive view of all data centre assets including servers, storage devices and networking equipment. This visibility ensures you can track the location, status, and configurations of your assets, leading to better resource utilisation and capacity planning.

Enhance security and compliance

Proper asset information management helps data centres maintain a secure and compliant environment. Create and manage permissions to ensure only authorised personnel have the appropriate permissions to sensitive information. This is crucial for meeting regulatory requirements and safeguarding critical data.

Reduce downtime and improve efficiency

During operation, accurate and up-to-date asset information allows for proactive maintenance and quicker issue resolution. Locating the data you need when you need it makes it easier to monitor equipment health and swiftly address any issues to reduce downtime and improve overall operational efficiency.

Cost savings

Asset information management enables you to make informed decisions regarding equipment upgrades, replacements, or consolidations. Optimising asset utilisation and lifecycle management can help to reduce unnecessary expenditures and improve a return on investment.

Scalability and future planning

Gaining a complete understanding of your data centre asset and performance data can help plan for future growth and expansion. Asset information management helps to determine when to scale infrastructure, add new equipment or make adjustments to meet changing business needs.

Supporting unique data centre requirements

We understand that a data centre’s information management requirements are very different to other commercial buildings. With more complex mechanical and electrical systems, fire stopping requirements and energy supplies, data centres are required to be maintained differently. 

Glider is the leading expert in the management and validation of structured asset data, health & safety information and digital Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Manuals for data centres. Whether you are working to UK BIM Standards or have your own data schema, we ensure all information is captured so it can be exploited in operation to improve energy efficiency and space optimisation.
