Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has been seen as a basic necessity in managing server rooms or data centers. This integrated management helps to manage and monitor servers, switches, routers, energy PDUs and generic IP devices effectively.
Demand for cost saving and maximum uptime have never been higher. Data center traffic is increasing exponentially and projected to more than triple, driven primarily by our dependence on the Internet to do business, to communicate, and to entertain.
The immense amount of data needed to support all of these activities requires not only a growing number of data centers, but also new kinds of data center builds and new ways to manage them. In addition, green initiatives driven by power concerns and the implications of size and scale, coupled with the adoption of new technologies, are creating a confluence of often conflicting forces that require new and innovative data center management solutions.
