This is the last of a 3-part series "DCIM for High Availability" presented by GreenField Software. It first defines "high availability" and then gives instances of some recent high profile Data Center failures in spite of their robustness and extreme in-built redundancies. The business impact of Data Center failures is highlighted.
Data Center topology has changed in the last two decades as a result of the High Availability Mantra and new tools are required to effectively manage the Modern Data Center. DCIM Software today has matured to a level where it is no longer an option. Data Centers of all sized need to implement DCIM not just to reduce risks of Data Center failures, but also to arrest increasing capital costs and operating expenses.
GFS Crane DCIM Software is a great example as the two DCIM Case Studies show in this presentation.
The following GFS Crane capabilities have been included in this presentation:
- Improved Availability through Predictability, Visibility and Change Tracking.
- Controlling Capex Costs though better visibility of under-utilized capacities and therefore deferring expensive capital expenditures; and minimizing stranded capacities.
- Reducing Operating Expenses: Real-time monitoring and multi-level PUE helps to reduce power costs; automation of processes improves productivity; and rationalization of assets reduces AMC and space rentals.
The presentation concludes with two GFS Crane DCIM Case Studies: in Financial Services and Telecom verticals.
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.
