Redefining Data Center Operations with DCIM Tools
Of late, data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution has gained a great value in terms of facility management. As it encompasses a broad gamut of functionalities that involve hardware as well as software, its role play has grown in scope and utility. Conventionally, the facility managers used to rely on Building Management Systems (BMS) that offer a limited set of functionalities and limit their utility to management of temperature and power usage. As data center management is totally different ball game that involves monitoring of hundreds of parameters, BMS are bound to fail in undertaking gargantuan task. The data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution nullifies the traditional notion that monitoring electrical usage is the only requirement to achieve data center operational efficiency.
