As organisations are adopting new technologies, the need to upgrade, expand, and reconstruct IT infrastructures are rising as well. As a result, organisations are turning to data centres designed and equipped to meet their high-density computing needs. Through a data centre, an organisation can reap benefits such as around-the-clock operations at lower costs, rapid deployment of applications, maintenance needed to sustain business functions, and consolidation of computing resources.
Data centres benefit organisations, but even they have to evolve and keep pace with technological innovations as data needs are rising at the speed of light. For this, a lot of data centres use AI for IT operations, also known as AIOps, which combines big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and virtualisation. Besides, data centres are transforming into cloud data centres that offer redundancy to clients by creating multiple facilities. However, multiple data centres mean the operators have to maintain infrastructures such as power distribution, uninterruptable power supplies, power backup, cooling systems, and ventilation. Therefore, they are extensively using DCIM software to get a holistic view of a data centre's performance so that energy, equipment, and floor space are used as efficiently as possible.
