Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is a system made up of various tools that are intended to manage, monitor, and measure matters such as energy consumption and overall utilization of equipment and infrastructure within a data center. This is done to ensure maximum energy efficiency and to prevent potential problems with IT equipment that can disrupt workflows or lead to downtime.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

Because SMBs have limited resources, they typically use data center outsourcing (DOD). DCIM is applied by these third-party providers to ensure that equipment is running properly so that SMBs will not experience downtime with their systems.
