Utilities Industry DCIM Solutions
Risk reduction, increased availability, compliance, and transparency
When it comes to offering utility services to millions of customers, there's a lot of data involved. Datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) becomes essential to run the data centers effectively and ensure the reliability of assessing critical data.
With the help of new technology, utilities can deliver services more reliably, and more sustainably. It also means that massive amounts of real-time data will be generated. This puts a lot of pressure on data centers. Downtime as a result of an issue in the data center eats into the financial returns spent on building the infrastructure. Without access to real-time data, it's difficult to maximize resource delivery efficiency. Worse yet, it might also risk disrupting services such as electricity, gas, and water. With so much at stake, not using a reliable DCIM solution is asking for trouble.
How DCIM Helps Avoid Downtime
DCIM maintains the data center environment similar to that of a smart utility infrastructure. It does this through the aggregation of many thousands of data sets. Sensors, electricity, temperature, and humidity monitors installed through the facility are constantly collecting data. This information is then funneled into DCIM, sorted, and digested on a computer screen as easy-to-understand visualizations. This comprehensive view of the complex data center infrastructure reduces the risk of being caught off-guard by an issue that might lead to downtime.
