Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software is a class of software that gives data centre operators the ability to run efficient data centre operations and improve data centre infrastructure planning and design. It typically replaces Excel®, Visio®, and home-grown databases. DCIM software can bridge information across organizational domains—Data Centre Ops, Facilities, and IT—to maximize utilization of data centre resources.
Because it provides:
- access to accurate, actionable data about the current state and future needs of your data center
- standard procedures for equipment changes
- better predictability for space, power and cooling capacity means increased time for more productive work
- supports asset lifecycle including planning, purchasing, storage, staging, installing, and discarding including parts and spares.
- single source of truth for asset management
- the ability to instantly see how much capacity is used and how much is available for improved capacity planning
- Faster and more accurate Implementation making the benefits accrue quicker
Tri-Paragon’s DCIM as a Service
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software is quickly becoming the core engine of data center operations. Since the IT function is so vital to the success of any modern organization, improving productivity, efficiency and reliability of data center operations delivers an immediate competitive advantage to DCIM adopters.
Capacity planning is an integral part of any data center operation and presents some of the most important, and challenging questions data center teams face. Do we have the right people and tools in place? Can we maintain uptime while maximizing computing resources? How do we keep our projects on time without increasing cost or risking outages?
Facilitating Data Centre Cabling and Troubleshooting
With the flow of data rising exponentially, data center space and efficiency have become premium factors for businesses. All hardware and cabling designs must be modular and scalable, make optimal use of space and take cooling and energy consumption concerns into account.
Gone are the days of using point-to-point cabling and directly connecting devices to one another. This leads to cabling messes and increases cabling costs for every hardware refresh. In today’s high-density data center, a well-designed structured cabling system increases uptime, scalability and return on investment while simultaneously decreasing your technology footprint and operating expenses.
