Very easy to use.

Pros

Any part of it can be completely customised to suit your needs, especially aspects such as the Dashboards in both dcTrack and PowerIQ. This provides us with great levels of detail and monitoring of our Data Centres.

Cons

We had certain "Workarounds" in place, in particular cabling between devices, compared to our original DCIM tool. But as mentioned above, Sunbird Support are very helpful. If you need something changed, then a Feature Request can be raised so Sunbird can look at adapting the tool.

Excellent overview, timely warning, optimal reports - and all with little effort!

Pros

All in all a convincing offer. Product, licensing model, price, service, etc. convince in comparison with other solutions.

Cons

In the case of dcTrack, the licensing model for PCs should be extended in order to be able to map office units (PC, Printer, etc.) with the software beyond the data center (Racks/Cabinets).

We have been in full control of all our datacenters word wide

Pros

The easy way to build our datacenters into dcTrack and the huge difference from spreadsheets to dcTrack. Provides a quick overview as well as being able to produce reports to several departments

Cons

Models library could be more correct and updated more often not only once a month. More pic to the 3D view.

Very powerful tool for analytics and device management. We love using it to track power consumption per device and temperature/humidity in our data centers.

It took a while to get it configured and working the way we wanted it, but Sunbird was there to help us every step of the way and make sure we got the most out of their product.

Use it daily to document Data Center Power. Previously used it to document Data Center cabinets, assets, data and power connections, structured cabling. It is our source of truth for what's in the Data Centers and monitoring tool for temperature issues

Pros

dcTrack is easy to use in that setting it up to model a data center follows the physical process of actually setting up a data center. Using it to maintain documentation of assets' placement, data and power connections is easy and logical. It also provides for great monitoring of power utilization and temperature/humidity with its integration with Power IQ. And the customer support is excellent! You are treated like a partner.

Cons

dcTrack is mostly web-based but part of the functionality remains in an application called Classic View. This functionality is being migrated piece by piece, and a lot of it is accessible now from the web client. We look forward to the day when we no longer need to use Classic View as it is quite slow and it cannot be re-sized to see all of it at once without scrolling.

The capability to utilize a single database to not only manage our data center racked assets but to also integrate with our incident and change management tool.

Pros

The support from Sunbird is beyond excellent. They're very quick to respond to inquiries and are always willing to provide whatever help we need.
The 3D visualization is awesome and uploading asset details is easy. I especially like the custom fields feature because I can add data unique to our data center.

Cons

Would like the capability to create drop-down select lists that auto-fill additional/relative fields such as Systems Administrator name and the contact information (email, desk/cell phone and manager details).

I am able to easily view the power and climate status of all my PDU's.

Pros

Power IQ is very easy to use and quickly shows all desired data. The web page is very easy to setup and manage. Once the hardware is in place configuring the data on the network is easy to view and report on.

Cons

The look is very basic. I would like to see more new age view. The graphics are very early internet. This does not diminish the functionality of the software, it just looks clunky.

It organizes and centralizes information and it greatly aids in MACD

Pros

The many visualizations such as device, cabinet and floor plan (including 3D) are quite valuable to me. With the cabinet views, I can 'see' the best areas to place equipment within a cabinet without the need to be physically on site. Device views allows me to 'show' Installers where exactly the various device ports are located so they connect data cables correctly. The floor plan allows me to estimate distances so I can order cables of proper length. All of these views are invaluable to me since I support remote data centers.

Cons

That I still need to access Classic View to preform some functions. To be able to access data panel port information from the GUI is great and I cannot wait for functions like Lists and Connectors are moved there too.

we were able to do precise monthly charge-backs to clients for colocation services which was crucial to the client agreement. We have nice historical views of power usage as well for all our sites using intelligent rack PDU's and we even connected the DCIM to our power and cooling infrastructure for alert monitoring benefits.
Don't have many cons, we've used the product for a few years now and it's a stable and reliable tool for our datacenter management team.

Pros

pricing was clear cut and scaled easily with license packs as needed. The tools are very intuitive and user friendly. We were up and running, tracking power in a few days.

Get the ease of knowing how our data center is running at a glance. Can keep track of assets through out the organization without having to physically going to each asset.

Pros

Can set up and change settings easily without a lot of going back and forth through screens, which I had to do with other DCIM tools. Easy to navigate for the end user without needing a lot of training.

Cons

Depending on the manufacturer of an add on device I needed to purchase another interface to allow this to read the power.

Being a High Impact FISMA IT system we are required to have automated mechanisms in place for all aspects of the system to include infrastructure. The power requirement has been satisfied.

Pros

I've found it very easy to configure and use. Setup was a breeze out of the box and any local shortcomings were easily rectified by tech support.

Cons

Reporting capabilities are somewhat limited. I had trouble initially setting up the reports and would have liked the output to be a little more granular.

I have been able to easily keep an eye on all power, temperature, and humidity statuses for all my hardware locations. I have about 300 units that monitor areas all over the city.

Pros

I like the web interface most of all. It is very easy to use and it displays the data in a clear manor. the web interface allows for quick manipulation of data and dashboards.

Cons

the look of the web page is a little old school. It does not compromise any of the data, however, I would like to see something a little more trendy. This and several Java issues have been slightly disappointing.

PowerIQ from Sunbird (formerly Raritan) has become a staple in our Data Center Management. We depend on it daily. We've been using this powerhouse for about a decade now with zero regrets. Unmatched features from the most innovative hardware/software company I've had the pleasure of dealing with will help you rest easy while your data center purrs like a happy cat.

Pros

It started off ahead of the pack, and it's stayed there with consistent updates from (wait for it) FEEDBACK FROM USERS. I love that. It's not a shiny ball that turns out to be an empty shell once you buy it. This stuff works.

Cons

The initial setup can be daunting, but this isn't 1990 anymore and we aren't rookies. Read the manual and install the product like a boss.

The reason we bought this Sunbird or PowerIQ software because we want to be able to manage and monitor all of the OOB products (competitor). Once we have this software setup, test and we try to added all the OOB product by configured SNMP, but some brand and model like Raritan and Avocent can be mornitor but not all other products.

Pros

It would be nice, if Sunbird or PowerIQ software can both work on Windows and Linux platform. Sunbird only can monitor specific OOB products that listed on the products lists.

Cons

The least about this software is not all OOB products can be monitors.

I am an implementation partner for Sunbird. I love working with their product. They make it very easy to load data from spreadsheets and quickly stand up an instance of the tool with the client's data.

Pros

Installs very clean. The OS and database are all packaged and installed as a VM. The developers listen to your feedback and are constantly updating the software. I have always received great support from their staff.
