British banking group HSBC is implementing a data centre management system from Connecticut-based Aperture Technologies across its global facilities.
HSBC will deploy the vendor's Vista 500 package across its 22 data centres in 10 countries. Implementation of the package will begin this year and is expected to be complete worldwide by 2009.
Aperture says its software will be used to enable better capacity planning and management of HSBC's data centre operations worldwide. The technology enables firms to "visually manage the complex physical environment of the data centre", including space, power, cooling, network and storage.
Edward Case, a senior business consultant with the global data centre services organisation at HSBC, says: "Vista will provide a central repository, so we can see this information both on a data centre basis and globally. Vista will also bring consistency to our processes for managing data centres."
William Clifford, CEO of Aperture, says the physical infrastructure of the data centre is becoming increasingly complex.
"Vista provides companies like HSBC with the visibility they need to ensure that critical data centres perform to the high standards that the business demands," he adds.
