General Overview of DCIM as a Service

The pandemic has Increased the need to work from home and minimize onsite staff. Social distancing and restrictions on how many staff members can be onsite are now commonplace. With Data Centre access being extremely limited, management of the Data Centre must be done effectively and remotely.

Preventing Data Centre Downtime

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.

Good network documentation practices improve uptime and increase the speed at which you can deploy equipment. Plus, if there is an issue, you can quickly trace cables via your documentation to determine the root cause rather than having to manually trace cables. Without proper documentation, you risk mismanagement of resources, ineffective use of capacity, inability to move or install equipment, unsafe operating environments, and increased capital expenditures for new cabling and hardware.

Managing Data Centre Port Capacity

Sunbird DCIM software provides Data Centre operations managers with the ability to identify, locate, visualize, and manage all physical Data Centre assets, quickly provision new equipment, and confidently plan capacity for future growth. Sunbird DCIM software also helps control energy costs, improve Data Centre design, and increase operational efficiency.

9 Best Practices for Remotely Managing Your Colo Infrastructure


  1. Track and manage port capacity

As colocation environments grow increasingly dense and complex, you need to accurately inventory and track individual physical port types residing on every device to make the most informed decisions to improve planning for new equipment and services and aid in maintaining and troubleshooting colocation infrastructure.

“A lot of times I’m in a meeting and there’s a project coming up and we’re going to deploy some new equipment and we want to know what we have for connectivity,” said Tom Wysocki, Data Center Manager, KPMG. “What I’m able to do is bring up a visual of that switch and very quickly I can highlight what’s connected and what’s not connected. So if we’re in a project and I know there’s going to be ten servers and I’m going to need two connections per server, I can see I’ve got plenty of ports available and even assign those out now to the network team or the project leader and say, ‘These are the ports we’ll be utilizing,’ so they can go ahead and start getting them configured. We can start pre-cabling ahead of time and labeling and really move ahead on that project.

Data Center Management Trends

December 10, 2020

In 2020, data center professionals saw significant industry shifts and advancements in data center management tools that reshaped how modern data centers are managed. The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a new normal requiring remote data center monitoring and management, which was already becoming a priority due to increases in edge, retail, colocation, and remote deployments.

Digital Twins for Data Centres

What are Digital Twins?

A digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product, or service. This pairing of the virtual and physical worlds allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, prevent downtime, develop new opportunities and even plan by using simulations.

Creating A Data Center Strategy and Roadmap

Modern data center managers are under constant pressure to do more with less while simultaneously being tasked with maximizing uptime and optimizing for efficiency and capacity utilization. In today’s ever-changing data center environment, insights from data provide a critical competitive advantage to help tackle these challenges.

Who Benefits from Data Centre Monitoring?

Data centre monitoring is critical for tackling many of the most difficult tasks facing modern data centre managers. It provides insights and visibility into the health and status of your data centres by tracking specific metrics in real time and sending alerts or notifications when readings exceed or fall below the set thresholds.

5 Ways 5G Technology Will Affect Data Centers

5G, the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, is expected to hit the market worldwide in 2020. The faster connections and lower latency provided by 5G will revolutionize every industry from retail and transportation to entertainment and healthcare. According to IHS, 5G is expected to create $12.3 trillion, in global economic output and 22 million jobs by 2035.
