Over time, data center infrastructure has become infinitely more complex and more distributed. To support the needs of both customers and data center management, IT leaders need to develop an intelligent approach to measuring and managing new data center assets. This will include the use of new software tools and data center management solutions.
This special report, courtesy of Schneider Electric, explores the evolution of software used to measure and manage data centers, as well as the critical factors leaders must consider as they design the future of digital infrastructure. First, the author takes a look back at the journey to today’s digital infrastructure by evaluating how digital modernization is impacting physical infrastructure management.
The author then discusses emerging concerns around data center visibility, as well as the impact that emerging data center infrastructure management (DCIM) technologies have on data centers. The report also explores the software-defined bottom line and the data center value equation. It wraps ups with a look at the tools and partners that impact the software-defined bottom line.
