Making the Case for Automated Data Center Tools

By Karen A. Frenkel  |  Posted 11-10-2015 Email

Planning and forecasting the capacity of data centers is without a doubt challenging, but it’s surprising that slightly less than half of data center managers still rely on manual methods to do so. The main reason? Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools are too expensive, according to a recent survey, so managers resort to tape measures and spreadsheets. Redshift Research conducted the online survey online for Intel. It included 100 data center managers in the United States and 100 in the United Kingdom. The survey concludes that DCIM tools can help data center managers by providing access to valuable information, identifying problems and helping them understand the true costs, implications and causes of outages.
