Why DCIM is Growing to be an Irreplaceable Part of Data Center

One of the main focus area in data centers today is Data Center Infrastructure Management or DCIM. Why is DCIM now more important to many facility managers than anything else in their data center?

Streamlining power consumption

Data center infrastructure managementDCIM provides for monitoring and forecasing a data center’s power and cooling infrastructure. This allows the facility manager to maximize data center efficiency, ensuring optimal power consumption for optimal performance. Less energy means less cost.

A clearer picture of data center assets

Unless you know what components and resources are available with you and how they are interrelated, adoption of any optimization procedure will prove futile. A good DCIM strategy provides a transparent view of the entire data center architecture with focus on each component and the overall operational concept of the facility.

Reduced risk

With a streamlined operation courtesy of an effective DCIM plan, risk mitigation becomes easy. Data center compliance levels are easier to maintain. Risk of downtime is reduced. Security often improves as threats are more easily identified and eliminated.

Faster service delivery

DCIM makes it easier for outsource data centers to proactively reduce problems and operate efficiently with the resources it has. This translates to data center uptime, which ensures that businesses relying on the data center realize their uptime and service levels.

In short, a well formulated DCIM strategy is the backbone of a data center. DCIM strategy improves operations, reduces costs and maximizes data center uptime.
