Hi Genjua,

Sorry for the very late response. I will try to answer those 7 questions:

1-  If you have/need modeling a usual data center then you might go for "DCO license", but as a colo provider you might need the colo functionality such cage creation, customer association with racks/cages, etc. then you might go for "DCO Colo license". 

2- Licenses are rack based! so there is no limitation on number of created cages and/or users.

3- "One mobile application license is for single user?" This is not clear for me, but as mentioned above, licenses are rack based! so only the number of modeled racks would be counted.

4- I think some users/customers using "Store Room" in DCO as a sort of inventory management. However, via ETL integration interface it is possible to integrate with ServiceNow.

5- For PUE calculations, currently two options available: a) creating a simple PUE b) configuring Energy Efficiency PUE (requires Energy Efficiency license)

6- Currently (in DCO 8.3) with the basic license it is possible to integrate with Cisco UCS Manager (as external system). 

7- HP uCMDB integration can be done via ETL integration interface in DCO. And currently with the basic license it is possible to integrate with HP OneView (as external system).

 

PS: please start with a new community post/case if you should have more questions 😀  thanks.

Kind regards

Thanks much for your reply, Yes i have more questions to ask and i will start from Data Center Operations and then move forward to Data Center Operation - Capacity , Cooling Optimize etc.

Data Center Operation:

  1. In the license we have two types of license, Colo License and Simple License, If we have multi vendor or commercial data center we will go with Colo License else go with simple one?
  2. If we order Colo License of 100 racks how many cages we can built? and how many different user can logon with it to monitor their servers?
  3. One mobile application license is for single user? 
  4. How we will perform inventory management? Through ServiceNow? We need to order some license to use it?
  5. For PUE calculation it will integrate and pull data from EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert?
  6. Cisco UCSTM Manager Plug-in is free of cost or it is paid?
  7. Its library already contain HP uCMDB and OneView integration stuff? is it a part of Data Center Operation – Server Access

Jef Faridi FIrst of all thanks much for one liner and detailed answers.

Further my apology for writing my question in the same post as you asked to open the new post because i feel to clarify my questions related to this post before open the new.

3- "One mobile application license is for single user?" This is not clear for me, but as mentioned above, licenses are rack based! so only the number of modeled racks would be counted.

I am asking about mobile applications licenses having part number SFVIZORANDROID23 & SFVIZORIOS43

If I order above part number how many concurrent user can login from their mobile to access DCO?

 

5- For PUE calculations, currently two options available: a) creating a simple PUE b) configuring Energy Efficiency PUE (requires Energy Efficiency license)

a) Creating simple PUE - its is included in DCO basic license

b) Configuring Energy Efficiency PUE which means we need to order DCO basic License + DCO Energy Efficiency Module.

Correct?

Hi Genjua,

You are most welcome, 

concerning 3-

Vizor (SFVIZORANDROID23/& SFVIZORIOS43) is discontinued and replaced by the web client in DCO. Following page contains details about web client:

https://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/display/UADCO8x/StruxureWare+Data+Center+Operation+Web+Clien...

Web client (dose not require additional license) is available on a computer, tablet or mobile device with an internet browser.

 

concerning 5- 

That's correct (both a and b)

a) Creating simple PUE included in DCO basic license. 

https://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/display/UADCO8x/Using+the+PUE+DCiE+Dashboard

b) Configuring Energy Efficiency PUE requires additional Energy Efficiency license being installed.

https://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/display/UADCO8x/StruxureWare+Data+Center+Operation%3A+Energy...

Hi Genjua,

That's correct in both 4 and 7 - ETL integration dose not require additional license, so available in DCO basic license.

Kind regards
