Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is the discipline of managing the physical infrastructure of a data center and optimizing its ongoing operation. DCIM is 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.
This book explains the importance of data center management, describes the key components of a modern DCIM system, guides you in the selection of the right DCIM solution for your particular needs, and gives you a step-by-step formula for a successful DCIM implementation. Because this is a For Dummies book, you can be sure that it’s easy to read and has touches of humor.
