Add Your Comments

Today’s modern data center requires organizations to run as optimally and efficiently as possible. This means introducing technologies such as data center infrastructure management (DCIM). According to a September 2012 Data Center Knowledge survey 70% of our audience are using or planning a move to collocation providers. It has become more important than ever to have a solid management platform overseeing the processes of a data center.

There are some core benefits when using a DCIM system within a collocation data center. Applying Data Center Infrastructure Management in Colocation Data Centers, a white paper from Emerson Avocent, takes a close look at what these benefits are and helps managers make smart decisions around their environments.

For example, areas such as capacity planning, asset management, and visibility into both a physical and virtual infrastructure provide real-time, detailed data which can be used to help an environment run more optimally.

Applying Data Center Infrastructure Management in Colocation Data Centers touches on some very important points when it comes to introducing DCIM technologies into a collocation data center. This includes:

  • Power management
  • Capacity planning
  • Cooling management
  • Integration points
