Big Data Exchange (BDx) launches 360° view with free downloads to enable infrastructure management and carbon credit tracking
With sustainability being a pressing initiative these days, 360°View takes the complexity out of carbon accounting and tracking carbon credits or offsets. The various carbon exchanges and organizations administering carbon credits and renewable energy certificates (RECs) currently rely on third-party consultants to validate credit and offset applications. This human factor is cumbersome, costly and subject to conflicts of interest. It is also riddled with errors and double counting is a significant problem. As greenhouse gas (GHG) producers commit to reducing their carbon footprint and meeting aggressive net zero or even negative carbon goals, 360°View provides them with a solution to track and measure carbon with precision, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, without any human intervention. intervention. In the background, 360°View can either digitally submit applications to traditional carbon exchanges or become a trusted node in any carbon token blockchain.
“Traditionally, 360°View is used by data centers and colocation users to comprehensively monitor and manage their power-related efficiencies, asset health, and hybrid infrastructure inventory,” says Panda Subject, CTO at BDx. “This new version now also measures CUE (Carbon Usage Effectiveness) to help companies report and receive carbon credits. This revolutionary feature means that 360°View is no longer a tool just for colocation customers and centers of data, but can also be used by residential and commercial building customers, utility companies, and sustainable forestry programs.As a native green, sustainability is built into BDx’s DNA, and it was a natural decision for us to offer the software for free worldwide.
With three editions – ranging from a free basic version to a full enterprise plan – the 360°View experience allows users in the colocation and renewable energy industry to upgrade at any time to access more features. complete, including connection to carbon ledgers and carbon credit token blockchains.
Key features of the 360° view include:
- Colocation and total power management
- A unified physical security command center
- Automated and integrated workflow management
- Asset performance and lifecycle management
- Sustainability trackers including accurate measurement of PUE (Power Usage Efficiency), CUE (Carbon Usage Effectiveness) and CoP (Coefficient of Performance)
- Connection to carbon registers and carbon credit blockchains
Existing users love the capability that 360°View puts at their fingertips. Marcus Cheng, CEO of Acclivis Technologies & Solutions, said, “We are very pleased to have installed the full version on our racks in the SIN1 installation of BDx in Singapore. Our managed services team can now monitor our assets and their performance remotely from anywhere, adding another level of real-time insights.”
Phil Martin, Vice President, Network Infrastructure at EXA, comments, “360°View is a great data center tool that helps with standardization, real-time capacity management, and reporting while simplifying the process. for our engineers. The ability to provide real-time feed reports tracking the benefits of PUE improvements allows for exceptional visibility.”
360°View is already attracting the attention of renewable energy providers.
“All we have to do is connect to their APIs, and we’ll have our carbon reload calculations done for us,” says John Cheung, CEO of Taiwan Cube Energy, a renewable energy provider in Taiwan. “It will also allow carbon registries or carbon token blockchains to accurately and transparently validate our carbon credits and offset claims.”
