What is the difference between EcoStruxure IT and StruxureWare?

In simple terms, EcoStruxure is cloud-based while StruxureWare is an on-premise DCIM confined to the local network. The cloud enables advanced features and benefits that aren’t available with on-premise DCIM.

Benefits of EcoStruxure IT

Easy to access – EcoStruxure is cloud-based so information, such as alarm data and notifications, can be accessed from any connected device or smart phone giving you the flexibility to monitor your IT infrastructure from anywhere.

Intelligent – Through the collection of device data from connected IT infrastructure equipment installed worldwide, Schneider Electric can run predictive analytics and send recommendations for pro-active service, and or modernization, based on the performance of the same equipment in similar applications. This data-driven intelligence helps users properly maintain their equipment and prevent downtime.

Enhanced factory support – Asset Advisor comes with 24/7 remote monitoring and troubleshooting by the Schneider Electric Service Bureau. Your on-duty personnel have access to Schneider Electric support through phone and chat via the app. Because they are connected via the platform, the Schneider Electric Service Bureau can view and help manage alarms in real time.

Flexible – The EcoStruxure IT Expert app gives you the flexibility to change the personnel on duty, take yourself or someone else temporarily off-duty, and respond to incidents with just a few clicks on your smart phone.  Device alarms are combined into a single incident to prevent an alarm storm. When used with Asset Advisor, the app also serves as a direct connection to Schneider Electric technical support.

Finally, with Asset Advisor, 24/7 monitoring and troubleshooting support are available from Schneider Electric.  EcoStruxure IT takes more of a service-oriented approach to DCIM delivering actionable information in a way that’s convenient for users, making it more Datacenter Management as a Service (DMaaS) than a traditional on-premise DCIM.
