Data Center Infrastructure Management

Today's agile data centers need updated management systems, tools and best practices that will let their managers plan strategically, operate these environments at a low cost and analyze workflow to identify improvement options. Given budgetary constraints and other concerns, technology staffs need to stretch available resources while reducing costs. And that includes what their organizations spend on physical space and energy consumption for technology services. That's where data center infrastructure management (DCIM) comes into play.

This white paper will explain DCIM as well as provide technology advice on the tools and practices for its implementation and use, and how to take advantage of DCIM to improve energy efficiency and effectiveness in the data center.
