  • 50 years ago how did you know when to refill? The driver may have taken notes on last time filled and how many miles driven.Today our cars tell us you have exactly 7 miles before running out of gas.The living organism of a data center requires the same attention as cars. Much like the driver with the notepad, there are data center managers using excel spreadsheets to manager their power/cooling needs. APC’s Data Center Infrastructure Management software is an emerging opportunity. It’s a hot market and APC is the market leader
  • Efficiency is more than just improving PUE. Efficiency is a process that demands improved designs, state of the art technology and detailed insight into the real-time operation of the infrastructure that enables the opportunities for informed choice and decision support.
  • The term Data Centre Infrastructure Management is being adapted by the market, and it consists of 4 different disciplines, which APC’s InfraStruxure Management suite carries out: Monitoring, Measuring & AlertingDecision support & Information Management Management & ControlSoftware Services

    5. 5. DCIM Growth Projections According to Gartner Research: DCIM tools and processes will become mainstream in data centers, growing from 1% penetration in 2010 to 60% in 2014. 60% 2014 1% 2010
    6. 6. What Do Analysts Say About DCIM? “It is imperative that as these deployment models (traditional IT, cloud, outsourcing, hosting, colocation) permeate data center environments there is some level of orchestration keeping power, cooling, space, servers, networking, and storage in equilibrium. DCIM is meant to perform this orchestration for space, power, and cooling in the data center, respective of IT systems changing requirements.” IDC MarketScape: Worldwide DCIM 2011 Vendor Analysis – January 2012“One thing is clear: modern, well-run data centers will increasingly be runby managers armed with detailed, live and accurate information about thestatus of their equipment, along with reporting, analysis and controlsystems that enable them to plan effectively and to act on short notice.” The 451 Group – Market Insight Service – July 13, 2011“Energy savings from well-managed data centers can reduce operatingexpenses by as much as 20%.” Gartner 2010

    9. 9. Symptoms of Poor Data Center Operations It’s like the wild west! I flew to London to put a Post-It note on a rack! I found some servers and I didn’t know where they came from or I use Excel (Access) to who installed them track what’s there My CIO said “There’s some white When I come in every space – put the servers there!” morning, I can HEAR if everything is okay My hand at the back of the rack – THAT’s how I find hot spots I could fix this if we had a fire – a BAD fire!
