Say Goodbye to Cable Spaghetti and Spider Webs
Reduce Connectivity Complexity and Manage Cabling with Ease
A data center is a high-density, complex system with hundreds, if not thousands, of devices from a multitude of vendors. Knowing how devices are connected to each other is critical to effectively managing your data center. Without this information, you can’t plan capacity, perform fail-over analysis, manage virtual as well as physical connections, and quickly respond to outages in your data center.
How can I quickly identify what circuits are running? How do I know which customers and applications are relying on those circuits? What is the impact of changes on my power and network? DCIM software with connectivity management can help you answer these questions and more.
A new class of DCIM has earned high marks from customers. Enhanced capabilities such as zero-configuration analytics, automation via integration, ease of use, and super-fast deployments address the pain points of data center managers and allow them to make smarter operational decisions. DCIM bridges information across organizational silos, including Data Center Operations, Facilities, and IT teams to maximize utilization of the entire data center space. DCIM is the solution that provides the visibility and information you need to properly plan and deploy equipment for data center projects to support business services. Simply put, data center management is not complete without a DCIM tool. DCIM software is now the de facto standard tool for complete data center management.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software is quickly becoming the core engine of data center operations. Only 5 years ago, manual spreadsheets, sometimes supplemented with Visio diagrams, were accepted as the default tools for data center management. Since the IT function is the vital organs of any modern organization, improving productivity, efficiency and reliability of data center operations delivers an immediate competitive advantage to the organization. We will offer some facts about why this is so and, if not already the case, why Sunbird DCIM should be in your future.
