real-time facilities infrastructure monitoring
Modius provides software connectors to devices in the data center such as power distribution units, and a database into which the performance data is collected on an ongoing basis. Modius’s capability addresses two homeland security issues that the Fund has been focused on. Improving the availability of data centers is critical to maintaining ongoing business operations, not only throughout the commercial sector, but more important within the intelligence community which operates some of the largest data centers in the United States. Data centers account for 2-3% of the nation’s electricity consumption today and the usage is growing rapidly, so improving their efficiency can have a meaningful impact on overall energy usage.
