How Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Makes IT Managers More Productive
18 August 2015 by Sam Ng

Managing data centre infrastructure has traditionally been a tedious and often manual process, confined to the hardware stack. Without proper insights into data centre health, or the capability to pre-empt disruptions, IT managers can only fire-fight in the dark.

The move towards mobility, automation, and energy efficiency, among others, is driving data centre management functions into the software layer. Such software-defined data centres give IT managers ‘anywhere, anytime’ control – and the metrics needed to adjust computing resources and power usage on the fly.

With access to real-time and historical analytics, IT managers can now be armed with the intelligence to make more informed, proactive capacity decisions. Beyond infrastructure management, a software-defined data centre allows you to

  • work more efficiently with more storage, more power, and flexible payment models,
  • protect your data from attacks, intruders and natural disasters like fires and floods,
  • and keep your business open without interruptions, to cater to always-on customers
