Transform Datacenter Operations Through Datacenter Infrastructure Management Tools
This IDC Perspective provides guidance for increasing the sustainability, efficiency, and manageability of datacenter resources, including the critical facilities (power and cooling resources) and IT infrastructure (PDUs, racks, servers, storage, networking equipment, and cabling) in an increasingly distributed datacenter environment, where the physical equipment and workloads are in multiple locations. DCIM solution deployment is growing steadily as enterprises are tasked with delivering more IT services at a faster rate around the globe, often with limited budgets. Enterprises that recognize the importance of how sustainable the datacenter needs to be and how to better manage datacenter resources have turned to DCIM to save money on power and cooling costs and eliminate inefficiencies and waste.
"Cost savings with DCIM is just one of several benefits gained from a well-managed infrastructure," says Rob Brothers, program VP for Datacenter and Services at IDC. "A successful DCIM deployment will improve sustainability and reduce spending on maintenance. Companies can then shift that spending to projects that help the enterprise innovate and provide exceptional service to their customers."
