Data Centers from Edge to Cloud
PTS’ Data Center Maintenance Management Software solution (DCMMS) provides a complete & integrated management platform for operational maintenance of a data center and its support infrastructure
Our goal in the development of this software is to provide a best-in-class solution aimed specifically at providing data center managers with a tool to manage all aspects of support infrastructure maintenance within the data center. In using this tool, organizations will increase their support infrastructure asset life, track maintenance details, prevent equipment failures, predict equipment failures, improve labor productivity, reduce equipment downtime, minimize investment in inventory, and lower the total cost of data center maintenance.
DCMMS is a comprehensive application specifically designed to manage all support infrastructure assets within a data center. The solution is a web-based application which tracks all assets by type, manufacturer, age, and manages the assets against standard manufacturer-based maintenance schedules. All schedules, tasks, dates of service, problems, issues, resolutions, and other maintenance-based required items are tracked for each asset through the software system.
DCMMS Asset Information
From the equipment list, service administrators can drill down to retrieve detailed asset information, warranty information or service histories. Clicking on an asset’s location will display a visual view of the asset within the data center. Advanced search capabilities allow service staff to find the set of assets needed for maintenance and searches can be saved for reuse later.
DCMMS Service Routines
DCMMS provides pre-defined Service Routines such as those for planned/unplanned maintenance including preventative maintenance tasks for data center equipment (CRAC, PDU, UPS, etc.) with manufacturer recommended maintenance intervals, planned downtime, parts required, personnel availability, costs to service and full management reporting of issues and outcomes necessary to properly maintain the support infrastructure across all of a company’s data center facilities.
DCMMS Integrated Calendar
In addition, DCMMS provides an integrated calendar for easy preventative maintenance, work order management, and calendar-based scheduling. Drill down from the calendar view to a specific work order, site or date.
Finally, DCMMS is available for purchase or as a client/server application or as a PTS-hosted service solution. The cost of DCMMS is based upon the number of assets under management and is tiered to support small to large-scale data center management operations.
Optionally, on behalf of the client, PTS can maintain organization of all maintenance details through our Data Center Maintenance Management Service offering. Contact us for more information.
The DCMMS solution provides a solution previously unavailable to data center managers for effective and efficient maintenance of support infrastructure. This is the last step in the eleven-step process for proper management of a data center.

The average enterprise data center costs between $10 million and $12 million per megawatt to build, with costs typically front-loaded onto the first few megawatts of deployment. Seasoned data center builder Peter Sacco, founder and CEO of PTS Data Center Solutions, claims that it is possible to drive down costs by around 25 per cent or more, simply by being more disciplined on design.
