In a market that is constantly under pressure to maximize uptime and optimize for efficiency and capacity utilization, insight from data can provide data center managers with a critical competitive advantage. The challenge is that they don’t always have the time or training to analyze the massive amounts of data generated from the various data center devices. How do data center leaders know what to track and what their goals should be? What are the most important data center KPIs?
A new white paper from Sunbird outlines 40 of the most critical key performance indicators that data center managers should monitor. The report covers KPIs from nine areas: capacity, cost, asset, change, space, power, efficiency, cooling, and connectivity. Collecting and analyzing data in these areas will allow data centers to improve their overall health and efficiency.
In addition to the KPIs, the report outlines how a data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution can help managers identify trends and make data-based decisions across all aspects of the business.
