The ultimate goal of DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) is to utilize physical assets in the most optimum way to smoothen out operational inefficiencies in a data center facility. DCIM can be considered as the notifier of the following concepts within a heavy infrastructure facility such as a data center.

Energy Utilization

Why DCIM is NecessaryDCIM helps streamline energy consumption in the most optimum way by making the necessary changes to operational parameters. This guarantees efficient performance when the facility needs it the most, while offering savings in terms of power consumption when the need is minimal.

Bring Costs Under Control

With proper energy monitoring and consumption, related costs for cooling and supporting infrastructure also go down, thereby bringing down the maintenance costs forf the company. Furthermore, frequent visits to the facility and maintenance can be avoided to a great extent if the facility is maintained by using DCIM principles.

Reduce Downtime

With an effective DCIM strategy in place, you can minimize downtime-related issues, as a backup plan will always be ready with your engineers should an unprecedented contingency occur. Service restoration can be accomplished as fast as possible.

Compatibility with Technology Upgrades

When things are done in an organized manner, it is always easy to accommodate new changes. This fact applies to data center facilities as well. DCIM always has an eye for the long term needs of the business, thus making it possible for you to integrate future infrastructure upgrades to the existing system without any disruption of service.

Risk Management and Recovery

When you have a solid DCIM strategy at work, risk management becomes less of a headache to your facility manager. Your engineers and technicians at the facility will already have access to resources, tools and information as to how to restore the facility in the best possible way.

So when you choose a data center service, make sure it follows strict adherence to a standard DCIM strategy. At Lifeline Data Centers, we can assure you with the best return on investment for your data center operations as we can manage your resources in the best possible way, providing maximum service reliability and accuracy.
