Seeing is Believing: Learn How DCIM Improves Data Center Visibility

Take a moment and examine the modern IT and corporate landscape. We have a lot more devices, many more applications, and a truly consumerized user. All of this has resulted in a boom in both data and data center utilization. Why? Because the data center is the home to all of these modern technologies.

Running a data center comes with consistent requirements: maintain uptime of critical infrastructure, operate as efficiently as possible and manage costs. But today’s complex business environments also demand agility and flexibility to meet the requirements of your organization.

In this whitepaper from Emerson we test the amount of visibility you have into your data center and the respective operations. Remember, the key to true agility and flexibility is having the important information you need at your fingertips. It means knowing and seeing all the data center assets, their consumption and connectivity so you can make important decisions in an informed and conscious manner. Without this information you cannot effectively enable the business because you can’t manage what you can’t measure, and you can’t measure what you can’t see.

Let’s take a second to test your vision: How many of the items below can you see accurately and in real time?

  • Available power capacity
  • Available space to add new equipment and servers
  • The actual assets you have and their exact location
  • Utilization for chargeback to business units
  • Which power components are connected to which
  • Impact of planned changes power systems affected by outages
