This is slide deck of the first of a 3-part series "DCIM for High Availability" presented by GreenField Software. It proposes that while Data Centers have been around for more than four decades, the reason why DCIM Software is now becoming an important tool for DC Managers is the need for maintaining a near 100% Uptime. The Data Center topology has changed as a result of this High Availability Mantra and new tools are required to effectively manage the Modern Data Center.
DCIM Software charts out the relationship maps for assets by identifying various dependencies among them. Threshold-based alerts on critical parameters, combined with impact analysis of Move-Add-Change, mitigates risks of DC failures.
GreenField Software’s Mission is to help Data Centers control capital expenditures reduce operating expenses and mitigate the risks of Data Center failures. Besides DCIM Software, GFS offers Data Center Advisory Services in the areas of best practices, capacity planning, energy efficiency and business continuity of data centers.
