Data Center Infrastructure Management
By definition, data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is the combination of IT and building facilities functions within an organization. The goal of DCIM is to provide data center administrators with a complete view of a data center’s performance so that energy, floor space and equipment are used as efficiently as possible.
Data center infrastructure management tools help administrators identify the relationships between a building and its IT systems. They gather and analyze power usage effectiveness (PUE) and cooling system efficiency with the help of energy-monitoring sensors installed along all points of the infrastructure.
Give your IT staff the tools to effect positive changes from any location, at any time of day or night, without regard to hardware type, operating system or networking status. Imprint delivers solutions with a multi-dimensional perspective that can ensure effective service delivery and efficient process flow with best practices meeting the DCIM challenge.
