The new version of ABB’s data center automation product Decathlon has been upgraded and rebranded ABB Ability Data Center Automation, as part of the company’s new Ability brand.

Ability is made up of 180 products and services that cover power monitoring and management for diverse industries including data centers, offshore systems and manufacturing industries. It now has cloud monitoring abilities, and improved integration functions between modules.

The update has better real-time visibility and optimization of data center equipment for power, cooling and IT, said ABB. It includes new reports and supports new equipment types and engineering tools, and is also integrated with Intel’s Data Center Manager (DCM) product. 

An auto-aggregation feature can combine values from different layers of physical or virtual equipment, making it easier to calculate overall data for power, temperature, IT, financial or any other variable, even while changes are being made in the infrastructure, said ABB.
