Sunbird Software announced the general availability of its latest dcTrack release. With release 7.2, Sunbird added a parts management feature that expands the scope of the physical data center infrastructure that can be managed in dcTrack.
Complete data center asset management
Now, customers can track the various parts of their devices such as power supplies, memory modules, patch cords, or even boxes of screws on a shelf for complete data center asset management.
Release 7.2 enables customers to build their inventory of parts from the new parts library and to upload their own parts images. Parts that have their own serial number can be tracked individually, while other parts can be tracked collectively by the number of parts in-stock versus in-use.
“Modern data center managers have an overwhelming number of IT assets to keep track of, each with numerous subcomponents. Managing inventory and assignment of these parts accurately is virtually impossible with spreadsheets or other legacy tools. With dcTrack 7.2, customers can easily and accurately manage high-value inventory items, monitor the supply of spare parts, and be alerted when they run below user-configurable thresholds.”
Custom fields allow users to track any attribute about a part like RAM memory speed. In addition to this, a fully searchable, sortable, and exportable audit log of all parts transactions show customers what was changed, by whom, and when. A single tool with complete knowledge of the required bill of materials, spares, or components helps planning and to provisioning new equipment or break/fix work.
A connectors library technology refresh that defines the connectors and its compatibility for connection validation, ServiceNow CMDB connector enhancements are the additional new features that come with dcTrack 7.2.
