    Data Center Design Tools?

    PeterLyttle

      Hi Folks,

       

      Does anyone here use a Data Center design tool that links into NPM/NCM etc, I've seen lots of tools like ManageEngine Rack Builder, Trelis etc but nothing (so far) that links into the Solarwinds DB?

       

      I'm needing a tool for the following -

       

      • Rack building
      • Power capacity planning
      • Network connectivity planning
      • Cooling planning
      • Weight / Size etc
      • Patch Cable tracking (not smart panels so the connections would need to be manually mapped to the SW Switch Port Discovery)
      • EOL on hardware

       

      All of which NPM/SAM/NCM can do individually but not from a rack builder perspective?

       

      Anyone any suggestions on this?

      Thanks,

      Pete
