Data Center Monitoring (DCIM)

Date Center MonitoringData Specialties Inc. incorporates proven and reliable systems into our clients’ data centers. We also understand that the operation of the facility itself will have the greatest impact on uptime, which means that those systems will need a human interface. For that, data centers require state-of-the-art monitoring systems.

Whether onsite, remote 
or co-location, we provide the monitoring capabilities our clients need to ensure that
 their data centers are operating efficiently and using the best data available.

In addition to response, monitoring systems allow our clients to make decisions about their infrastructure, optimize cooling, and bring their IT and physical inventories closer together.

Here are 3 questions our clients have about monitoring their data center:

1. With the number of DCIM solutions in the current market, should I buy now or wait? How can I leverage a DCIM application to give me the highest visibility into my infrastructure and IT environments? BMS is used to monitor and control infrastructure components. DCIM is used to monitor and manage infrastructure and IT environments, and to provide for a single integrated user interface.

2. What are the most relevant data points for us to monitor? And which application is best suited for each point?

3. Is my preferred monitoring solution proprietary and will it integrate with my current BMS system? Does my BMS support the protocols of my DCIM package so I can integrate the two systems into a single graphical user interface? Almost all DCIM packages are based on open source protocols and except multiple inputs. Some BMS systems are still based proprietary protocols, although this is fading rapidly.
