As technology rapidly changes and advances, data centers are required to change and evolve with it. So do the operations teams responsible for keeping them running smoothly.
Of the many lessons, the global pandemic taught us that we cannot treat data center operations as status quo. The sudden decrease in on-site personnel made managing and monitoring these facilities more complex and challenging than ever. It also highlighted the critical need for remote management and monitoring capabilities.
DCIM software is designed to deliver immediate visibility and critical insights into your digital infrastructure which can help you manage your data centers remotely, ensuring that they are running efficiently at all times. In this article, we'll explore how DCIM software can help you manage your data center operations and keep your facilities safe, secure, and resilient.
This week I had the privilege of attending SC22, the supercomputing conference, in Dallas, TX. Supercomputing centers are early adopters of technologies that will soon be common in most data centers.
Thus, the sessions I attended, the attendees I spoke with, and the solutions on display in the exhibit hall provided me with an eye-opening glimpse into tomorrow's data center.
INCREASING DATA CENTER DENSITY IS DRIVING CHANGE
Data center density is increasing in multiple dimensions including compute, storage, power, and heat. According to Mitchell Knight of CoolIT, average data average data center power density has quadrupled in the last 10 years. HPC is leading the way, with 45 KW per rack becoming common and the Frontier HPC system draws 300 KW per rack.
