The well-publicised advent of Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) in recent years would appear on the face of it to be a new invention promising to revolutionise data centre performance. In fact, DCIM has actually existed, in one form or another, since the advent of the data centre itself, so simply put it is the evolution of experience.
We have over time, developed our own ‘DCIM’ brain that can make educated decisions on events we see or those around us have experienced. What if instead of just our own experience or those of a nearby colleague, it was an experience that was shared. It is now possible to accelerate the learning curve associated with the development of this knowledge through investment in centralised software tools that empower whole teams rather than just individuals.
DCIM can provide the right tools, the right information, at the right time, to the right people all to enable data centre owners and operators to take positive action by unlocking the full potential of a facility to save time and money whilst ensuring uptime.
