With IT consumerization, more devices, and a lot more data – the reliance on the corporate data center will only continue to grow. Administrators are being tasked with running a leaner and more efficient data center all while keeping costs down. It’s clear that resources will always be finite. Furthermore, some resources can be very expensive. In creating a truly efficient data center environment, administrators must control how and where their resources are allocated. The reality is simple, monitoring in data centers responds to key industry concerns for energy consumption, availability and costs, maintaining an optimal environment for IT equipment and for coping with increasing total cost of ownership.

In this white paper from Raritan, you will learn the valuable benefits behind creating an efficient data center monitoring platform. Beyond setting up a good infrastructure monitoring system – the paper addresses the following as well:

  • Why monitor?

  • Who monitors and what do they monitor?

  • How are they monitoring?

  • What do they do with the information?

  • Where is the monitoring fit and purpose?

Download this white paper today to see how current monitoring and analysis systems appear stretched when answering the critical questions of:

  • How and where can I save energy?

  • How can I accurately track costs and identify cost savings?

  • How can I track power availability (so I can ensure that power within the facility goes where it is needed while reducing wastage where it is not needed)?

According to the paper, a major cause for dissatisfaction is that deployment of technology is not moving as fast as corporate and facility requirements are moving. This indicates that the speed with which the requirements for actionable information and analysis has grown and changed has not been satisfied by the original technologies deployed. The future data center must be designed around direct efficiency and a granular monitoring system. This way, organizations can plan their resources for both current and future demands.
