Managing the Data Centre Environment with Sunbird DCIM

The Data Center Environment

Among the many items on your plate of challenges is making sure the data center provides an ideal environment for the rigorous grind of everyday IT. While not all IT shops are set up in state-of-the-art fortresses, adhering to data center environmental standards is essential to creating ideal conditions.

 

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.

Managing Data Centre Capacity with Sunbird DCIM

How do you know how much space, power, cooling, and network capacity is available in your data center? Where is the best place to reserve space and deploy new IT equipment for optimal utilization? How do you get the data you need to convince your management that you need more capacity? With data centers becoming increasingly dense and complex, capacity is at a premium. Modern data center managers are under pressure to make the most of the capacity, or risk failing to meet IT resource demand.

Managing Data Centre Connectivity with Sunbird DCIM Software

Say Goodbye to Cable Spaghetti and Spider Webs

Reduce Connectivity Complexity and Manage Cabling with Ease

A data center is a high-density, complex system with hundreds, if not thousands, of devices from a multitude of vendors. Knowing how devices are connected to each other is critical to effectively managing your data center. 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.

How can I quickly identify what circuits are running? How do I know which customers and applications are relying on those circuits? What is the impact of changes on my power and network? DCIM software with connectivity management can help you answer these questions and more.

Business and IT Interruption Recovery Planning

Introduction

Business, governments and government agencies must be prepared for unexpected business interruptions of all types, from a supplier’s inability to supply, to the loss of a critical customer to a breakdown in a business process such as a temporary IT application outage or a loss of key personnel affecting the ability to execute that process. Proper proactive preparation prevents business outages of extended duration and provides the ability to quickly recover.

Unplanned Business Interruptions

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment are both important components of BC/DR Plans. However, Business Impact Analysis should be carried out before attempting Risk Assessment. Once both these components are in place, it is easier to formulate a sound strategy and plan for Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery.

The four most important risk scenarios that affect business operations of an organization are:

  1. Production site is partly or fully destroyed or cannot be accessed
  2. Loss of data and / or other critical records
  3. Loss of IT functions due to application software errors, glitches, viruses, power outages etc.
  4. Loss of skills due to incapacitation, pandemics, death or mission-critical staff leaving for greener pastures

Unplanned System Outages

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Are you unprepared for unpredictable and unexpected events which can expose your systems to unplanned outages? Planning for negative events strengthens your ability to respond and reduces your exposure to high losses if you are unprepared. There is an obvious parallel between the theory of unpredictable and unexpected events and the need for disaster preparedness for your critical IT assets.
