How Big Data and Data Center Infrastructure Management are impacting each other
Big data is high-volume, high-velocity and high-variety information asset that demand cost-effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making. Is big data a big challenge for your enterprise or is it an opportunity ?
- Information Strategy – leverage all possible data sources for better decisions. Emergence of big data has made decision making a lot harder than before !
- Enterprise Information Management – Information is everywhere – volume, variety, velocity – and it keeps growing
- Storage, Privacy and Security – how and where to store the data ?
- Tools and Techniques – Availability of tools and techniques to handle large volume, velocity and variety of data
- Resource availability – Shortage of qualified resources who can handle the challenges of big data
Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools monitor, measure, manage and/or control data center utilization and energy consumption of all IT-related equipment (such as servers, storage and network switches) and facility infrastructure components (such as power distribution units [PDUs] and computer room air conditioners.
DCIM is about
- managing not just monitoring
- increased Reliability of Data Center
- Real Time Reporting
- Reduction in Carbon Footprint
- embrace new technology
Key Insights and Conclusions
- Big Data drives DC Technologies – Big Data drives the need for better and holistic Data Center technologies that can handle Big Data and provide meaningful insights from the collected data.
- DCIM for Big Data – DCIM is the only viable way of unlocking the data sitting in the physical infrastructure. DCIM can play the role of a game changer for Big Data by making data –
- Understandable – collected and made visible in a way that makes it meaningful
- Relevant – enriched with the context of space, connectivity, and Time to provide a holistic understanding of the entire interconnected physical ecosystem
- Interconnected – presented in relationship rather than in silos, creating rich new layers of meaning
- Actionable – presented within a single holistic management framework so it can be instantly acted upon to drive transformational change
