Capacity Management via DCIM: Real-Time Data Center Intelligence Pays Off

DCIM Helps Optimize Capacity Utilization And Reduce Fragmentation

Capacity planning is one of the most difficult aspects of building a data center today. Proactive capacity management ensures optimal availability of four critical data center resources: rack space, power, cooling and network connectivity. All four of these must be in balance for the data center to function most efficiently in terms of operations, resources and associated costs. Unfortunately, once the data center is in operation, it is all too common for it to fall out of balance over time due to organic growth and ad hoc decisions on factors like power, cooling or network management, or equipment selection and placement.

CRM database update missteps can corrupt data

In theory, it's best to clear all your database transactions as soon as you can, keeping the tables up to date so that you don't have to worry about data integrity or time-smear problems. It's not always that simple.

In the real world of cloud systems, you may have dozens of loosely coupled databases. The updates typically happen in a few seconds, but under certain conditions--such as weekend system refreshes or quarter-end reporting--transactions may be held up for an hour or even longer. That's the way it's supposed to work.

Even the backup hard drive inside my desktop couldn't immediately help matters, as the machine itself was dead. Sure, I was able to switch over to my laptop and get back to work, but for the time being my data was trapped inside the defunct desktop.
