In the data center, system and network managers are responsible for the administration of active IT components such as storage, servers, and network components. The facility manager is responsible for the power supply, the structural conditions of the data center and the air-conditioning.
Both domains took far different tools to manage their world. As a result, you lacked a holistic view of the infrastructure components of a data center. This silo perspective still prevails in many data centers.
One way to get out of this unsatisfactory situation is to open the Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). It builds a bridge between the IT infrastructure, i.e. servers, storage systems, racks, and networking systems such as switches and I/O components, and the system parameters. These include the power, air conditioning, cooling and passive elements such as the wiring.
What DCIM software requires the operator of a data center depends on the individual requirements. Ideally, a management tool is modular and offers the option that the user integrate functions as needed. However, there are some necessary features that should make every Data Center Infrastructure Management product.
In the following checklist, the most important are listed below:
DCIM consequently has elements of classic system management and facility management. However, the focus is on the physical IT infrastructure and IT components such as racks, servers, and network components.
DCIM should include a plurality of function blocks, from collecting data on the management of cooling systems, power supplies and active IT components to the capacity planning of IT and data center infrastructure and its optimization.
