Video: The Virtual Facility – Data Center Sustainability without Compromise

Data centers are critical operations. The business impact of changes to the data center – like any other business critical operation – needs to be known before making the change. The Virtual Facility is a simulator that predicts the business impact of changes to the data center. This greatly reduces risk and improves IT and capacity planning.

A proactive approach for a reactive system: Predictive modeling for DCIM

6Sigma_Photo_-_10-13

Can you manage what you can’t measure? Is monitoring your data center really the same as modeling it? Do you make IT changes, then cross your fingers that they’ll work?

There’s an old adage that you can’t manage what you can’t measure. As data center operators flock to DCIM to gather more and more information about their facilities, there’s a danger…

Predictive DCIM – It’s all about Data Center Capacity Part 2

The typical data center will lose at minimum 30% of its total compute capacity in the absence of careful coordination of the space, power, cooling and IT equipment distributions. Many have turned to DCIM tools to protect capacity that is lost as a result of data center operations.

But, DCIM tools can only monitor/track power, IT assets, temperature and space only, NOT…
