DCIM for Colocation
Work faster, increase revenue, improve utilization & provide service differentiation
Over the last several years, companies looking to reduce data center operating costs, or avoid costly expansions of existing facilities, have considered using Colocation as a viable option for reducing OPEX and CAPEX costs associated with operating an in-house data center. This rise in popularity has created higher levels of competition between Colocation operators to on-board new customers quicker and keep them longer, through the use of value-added services.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), empowers colocation operators to better manage their facilities by consolidating all the information needed to make smarter, faster decisions for infrastructure planning and the day-to-day management of hosted equipment. DCIM solutions like OpenData collect real-time data from facility infrastructure and IT equipment, providing operational insight into resource capacity planning as new customers are added (or deleted) and have the ability to share this management information with customers as a value-added service. With DCIM, Colocation operators can transform their business by having the information they need to work faster, increase revenue, improve utilization and provide service differentiation to their customers — while reducing the risk of unplanned downtime from increased density.
