Physical infrastructure is one of the most meaningful, and often overlooked, aspects of data center management. A physical data center that is well designed and intelligently monitored not only enables today’s initiatives in a flexible manner, but frees up resources for tomorrow’s efforts. Every time data center equipment is moved, or a device is added, the balance of power, cooling, space and connectivity is altered. As a result, changes are needed, but what is the right action?
To make the correct decisions, information is required. A robust data center environmental monitoring and management system provides the information to not only keep track of changes, but also to draw up a blueprint for a data center that delivers maximum value. It’s an intelligent edge that can make the difference between success and failure to an organization.
