It's important to make this note very clear - Data center environments and infrastructure services will only continue to evolve and expand in today's digital economy. Business needs are the drivers for technological innovation and new data center solutions are certainly helping push organizations forward. As more IT environments see the benefits of leveraging their data center model for even more use-cases, administrators will need to learn how to properly size, manage, and deploy across IT platforms. Already, new data center services are pushing the capacity of technologies like cloud computing to the next level. This is why data center operations are more critical than ever before. And, what makes a data center run efficiently and resiliently? Data Center and Rack Intelligence.
Today, many data center managers are doing a good job conserving energy – decreasing PUE, raising data center temperatures, using air-side economizers to reduce energy consumption for cooling – but average power consumption at the rack is still going up. In fact, the increased efficiency means more power is available for servers to support data center growth. Data centers are finding that they must deploy more and more power to their racks. Why is this happening? Data center managers are deploying more and more power to their IT equipment racks to keep up with power-hungry devices.
So here's the big challenge - in the digital age of the data center, how are leading IT organizations managing and monitoring their infrastructure? Most of all, how are they injecting intelligence and greater levels of efficiency? In this webinar, we're going to discuss the big changes happening within your data center. Furthermore, we'll cover new solutions which help keep an eye on some of the most advanced technologies in your data center, and how you can intelligently control it all.
Specifically, we'll cover:
- Key evolving trends around the modern data center
- Major challenges facing IT leaders when it comes to properly monitoring and control resources
- Understanding new solutions aimed at reducing complexity while improving data center and infrastructure visibility
- Best practices to help optimize data center operations
