Managing Data Centre Energy with Sunbird DCIM

The Data Center Factory

In the data center industry, we are seeing a widening range of data centers. Cloud and Colocation facilities are larger and higher density capacity with electrical demand in the tens and hundreds of megawatts. There is edge computing where small data centers are distributed widely. Increasingly, we are seeing extreme weather conditions that lead to longer power outages. Data center energy management is a critical piece to data center management; data centers must have the ability to protect against these situations. Regardless of the size of the facilities, energy consumption and related costs are representing a larger portion of a data center company’s operating costs.

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.
