Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is the merging of IT and Building Facilities creating a holistic view so that Power, Space and Cooling can be employed as efficiently as possible. This presentation will cover the products used to manage and monitor 115 and counting Network Closets and 3 Data Centers. We will also show how PNNL used this data for:
• Immediate notifications when thresholds are exceeded
• Problem Determination by plotting trend data
• Timely Maintenance for failing components (especially UPS batteries)
• Realistic Capacity Planning
• Accurate data to determine true impact caused by equipment and AC changes to maximize energy efficiency
• Depository of data to satisfy DOE Data Calls and the basis for automated reporting
We will also touch on the benefit of establishing norms as the basis for Predictive Maintenance.
