Data Center

Documentation of the entire data center infrastructure

Document and manage all active and passive devices – comprehensively, database-driven, quickly and across manufacturers.

Manage data centers professionally

Pathfinder is a custom solution for professional data center management. With Pathfinder it is possible to realize the documentation of your entire IT infrastructure in data centers and server rooms. This applies from the largest distribution racks to the smallest installation cards. Active technology and passive cabling are fully documented, visualized and available to the user for evaluation at any time.

More than just a drawing

Unlike conventional drawing programs, Pathfinder not only visualizes the server rooms, but also enables evaluation in real time. For example, the software offers quick assistance complying with set standards. Check planning states “in real time” for inconsistencies, determine free resources and optimize existing cabling.

Drag. Drop. Done

The racks are the heart of a data center. But in practice, there is often little time for rack documentation and layout planning. Pathfinder provides a free library with more than 15,000 templates from commercially available manufacturers. Via Drag&Drop you can plan and document all control racks easily and quickly.
