Decrease Your Costs By Improving DCIM
August 7th, 2012 By: Michael Potts
Today, an effective and efficient data center is necessary in order for an organization to be truly successful. Through maintaining maximum data center availability, data center operators can avoid the significant costs associated with dysfunction and outages. Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software is rolling in to many data center stratgies, allowing operations managers to identify, locate, and manage all physical data center assets, as well as manage capacity and streamline moves, adds and changes.
This white paper from Raritan outlines the many benefits of DCIM to the data center and data center operations manager, focusing especially on DCIM software’s positive return on investment. First, it stresses the accuracy of information DCIM provides when managing assets and tracking entire change cycles, and its benefits over utilizing homegrown Excel-based management systems. Next, it explains how DCIM allows managers to reclaim lost capacity through visualization and identification of every physical asset within the data center and consolidation by allowing optimization of existing assets and capacity. Lastly, it details the use of DCIM in monitoring, measuring and controlling energy usage, allowing managers to fine-tune power distribution, avoid circuit overloads and significantly reduce overall power usage.
