The data center ecosystem is witnessing more disruptive technology implementations as organizations adopt newer technologies. While virtualization of the IT infrastructure continues steadily in the data center environments, the dominance of big data, IoT and machine learning will continue to fuel innovation in the data center landscape even as data center customers looking to reduce the cost incurred on increased compute and storage requirements.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions have garnered wide attention as these solutions promise cost savings through streamlined performance of the infrastructure and improved energy management. DCIM transforms data center operations by automatically monitoring and scheduling tasks pertinent to infrastructure, networking, and facilities. It also aids in workflow automation for process tracking and audit trails. Through APIs, DCIM provides operators with a single pane of glass view of the real-time information related to asset management, resource management and forecasting. Besides DCIM, there are solution providers in the market offering intuitive solutions to tackle a single point of failure and unplanned downtime in the data center environment.
Interestingly, the number of organizations are looking to outsource their data center requirements by running their business applications on servers which are geographically located in an area that incurs lower maintenance cost due to conducive climate conditions. Organizations are also looking for outsourcing partners who use renewable or alternate sources of energy for lesser carbon footprints.
