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.
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 the Data Centre.

What is Managing Data Center Capacities?
Being unable to deploy critical infrastructure as required is not an option.
Data Center component capacities focuses on those components which, if not carefully monitored, can cause delays in provisioning for new applications. This blog is not all-encompassing but addresses those components where the author has experienced capacity problems in the past. This is especially true where the organization is fragmented and effective communication between the organizations responsible for the various components within the data center is required to avoid issues. For example, where the network accountability rests outside of the IT organization potential communication problems may arise. This could lead to an inadequate number of network ports required to deploy a server which now must sit idle until additional ports can be provisioned. This could also delay the deployment of a critical application. To avoid this sort of complication, the capacity management team should monitor the capacity of all components within the data center thus keeping the accountability in one place.
