Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
DCIM is an abbreviation for “Data Center Infrastructure Management” and is an important area in a data center.
What is DCIM used for in a Data Center?
DCIM helps a data center to keep track of its infrastructure. This includes everything from knowing which fiber goes from point A to point B to having an overview of which hardware is in which racks in the data center. It can also include information about building infrastructure such as ventilation, lighting, and security systems.
DCIM solutions contribute to increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and improving the reliability of a data center.
A good example of a DCIM solution is Sunbird.
