Expert best practices for data center management

Very few DCIM platforms are used to directly control IT equipment functions, they are also incapable of automatically scaling and directly controlling a facility’s power and other equipment, such as chillers, in response to varying computing loads. It is important for DCIM software to be suitable for facilities teams and IT departments.

This expert e-guide offers information on how data center infrastructure management tools can benefit your organization. It also offers information on how to overcome the limitations of DCIM. Access now to gain insight into topics like:

  • Using DCIM tools for energy monitoring
  • DCIM challenges and limitations
  • Trends in data center management and server technology
  • And more
