Vigilent® today announced an evolution of its Dynamic Cooling Management® system bringing unprecedented, consolidated HVAC system control to buildings that house changing configurations of data centers, technical, administrative and central offices. Version 6 of the Vigilent system adds building-specific thermal control functions to its existing data center controls, enabling owners of mixed-use buildings to dramatically reduce energy costs and simultaneously gain visibility throughout their existing heating and cooling infrastructure.
“Many of our telecom customers have large portfolios of mixed-use buildings in a constant tug-of-war between the heating and cooling requirements of evolving technology on one hand and retrofitted legacy equipment on the other,” said Dave Hudson, Vigilent CEO. “Vigilent now provides comprehensive automated control for these very different energy consuming regions within a single interface, typically reducing energy usage by upwards of 40 percent.”
The thermal environments of aging buildings can be extremely diverse as floor by floor use changes over the years. Managing such environments is challenging - beyond the different energy requirements of different floor space usage, internal temperatures are also affected by seasons, time of day and, as office space is filled or vacated. The Vigilent system learns and identifies a building’s thermal patterns to automatically adjust HVAC equipment to maintain desired comfort levels with the maximum possible efficiency, just as it precisely controls temperatures to maintain required thresholds for data center assets.
Wireless sensors deployed throughout a facility continually monitor the thermal environment, which enables the Vigilent system to make adjustments accordingly. Deployment of the dynamic cooling management system is quick and non-obtrusive, requiring no retrofits or building operation interruption.
Building control can be configured separately within the Vigilent system to manage building-specific requirements, such as zone monitoring (in addition to the rack inlet monitoring offered in the data center configuration) and direct HVAC control (in addition to CRAC or CRAH control), within a single interface. As with its data center configuration, Vigilent building controls and resulting data can integrate with and be used as an intelligent layer for a BMS system, or as a standalone system to fully control electricity and chilled water operations for building heating and cooling.
The building control configuration is included in the Vigilent Dynamic Cooling Management system version 6 and available immediately.
Vigilent (vigilent.com) is the leader in dynamic cooling management systems, an essential solution for data center infrastructure management (DCIM). The company applies advanced Intelligent Analytics® technology to address the real-time energy demands of data centers, colocation providers, telecommunications facilities, and large buildings. Vigilent protects uptime while delivering significant, immediate reductions in cooling energy costs and carbon emissions through automated 24/7 monitoring and control of mission-critical facilities. A privately-held firm located in Oakland, California, Vigilent is committed to green energy solutions that reduce and inform energy use, making for a more sustainable planet.

Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
