Reducing your Data Center Carbon Footprint
Step 2 in your journey to improving your data centre carbon footprint is to deploy environmental sensors.
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.
Managing Data Centre Operations
In recent years, data centre infrastructure has become significantly more reliable and management practices have improved, so it would be fair to expect that the number of reported downtime incidents is decreasing. But this is not the case.
According to a 2018 survey by Uptime Institute, 31% of respondents experienced a downtime incident or severe degradation in the last year and 48% reported at least one outage at their site or at a service provider in the last three years.
