Data Center Infrastructure Management

Capacity Planning and Monitoring

(Part 3 of DCIM - NetZoomDC Enterprise Edition -Enabling and Facilitating Capacity Planning)

As reported in Computerworld May 12, 2017 by By Patrick Thibodeau, Senior Editor: “A third of virtual servers are zombies and idle virtual servers may be more costly than similarly idle physical servers.”

New research finds that 25% of all physical servers -- and 30% of all virtual servers -- are comatose. These are systems that have no activity in the last six months. 

The problem with comatose, or zombie, physical servers is well known. Past studies have routinely put the number of undead enterprise physical servers in the 20% to 30% range. But this latest research looked at virtual servers as well, and they may represent a significant cost to IT departments. That's because users may be paying licensing fees on their virtual servers, as well as on the software they support, said the researchers.

Data Center Consolidation

A data center consolidation strategy is important in order to:

  • reduce the number of devices in a single data center
  • reduce the global footprint with fewer data centers and locations to manage
  • provide a wide range of cost and efficiency improvements for the data center(s)

10 DCIM Benefits For Data Centre Service Providers (i.e. Cloud or Co-Lo)

This article provides a list of ten benefits that are available to Data Centre Service Providers that choose to implement a Data Centre Information Management System (DCIM). Many of the benefits are also valuable to the service providers’ customers and provide a means to differentiate the service provider from competitors. In addition to helping the service provider reduce overall costs and on-board new customers faster, it also helps their customers better manage their infrastructure.

Data Centre Cooling

Data centre cooling is one of the major challenges faced by data centre managers because high temperatures and excess heat can severely and negatively affect its components lifespan and performance. As organizations keep adding computing equipment, data centres are demanding more electricity and producing higher heat. Increased cooling and electricity demands are increasing cooling and power costs and hampering productivity of data centers, and organizations must seriously consider investing in alternative cooling solutions for efficient heat and equipment management.

Minimize the impacts of Critical Application Outages

Much is written about business continuity and recovery of operations after a disaster. What about recovery of a system or application that experiences a lengthy outage and negatively impacts the day-to-day operations of a business?

FACT: 25% of businesses that close after a natural disaster never reopen

FACT: 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster

I have yet to see the statistics identifying the impact of a lengthy outage of a critical application on a business. I am willing to bet that the disaster recovery statistics are representative of this scenario. So, what to do and how to mitigate this risk?
