Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

Effectively managing data center physical
infrastructure and optimizing ongoing operations

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is the discipline of managing the physical infrastructure of a data center and optimizing its ongoing operation. As a software suite that bridges the traditional gap between IT and the facilities groups and coordinates between the two, DCIM reduces computing costs while making it easier to quickly support new applications and other business requirements

DCIM bridges the traditional gap between
your data center facilities and IT

DCIM enables the data center to make the best use of the physical resources available, as well as enabling the seamless integration of the data center into the enterprises’ other business management solutions for asset management, process management, data management , capacity planning, budgetary planning and other important systems.

“It never ceases to surprise me that there are major data centers in operation today that don’t have a DCIM tool like Nlyte. Many data centers are designed using theory by data center architects who use manufacturers’ specifications. Unlike people operating those data centers, we know what is really happening in our data centers. This means that we can run them to the optimum efficiency and pass these benefits on to our customers.”

“We’re using the Nlyte Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tool to give us a better view of what’s happening. Before Nlyte we were in the dark, we didn’t have two steps we could analyze. There was very little we could do to figure out where a problem might be coming from, or who would be affected.”

The ROI of DCIM

A well-developed DCIM solution quantifies the cost associated with moving, adding or changing equipment on the data center floor. It understands the cost and complexity of operating these assets and clearly defines the value that each asset provides over its life span. Click here for full Infographic
