DCIM, Efficiency Management and SLA dashboards
DCIM: PUE and EER, the Key Performance Indicators
The most used Key Performance Indicators of a datacenter are the PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) and EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio).
Know your actual PUE and EER is one thing, but knowing them in detail and be able to modify them if your datacenter changes is the next step towards Datacenter Operational Excellence.
DCIM: User Configurable SLA-dashboards
A modern efficient datacenter can not be operated without the right SLA-dashboarding capabilities. These dashboards should be adjustable to the day to day changes within a datacenter.
DCIM of Perf-IT comes with many different standard, user configurable dashboards.
Interxion is using the Datacenter Monitoring Software of Perf-IT for more then 8 years.
With the DCIM-solution of Perf-IT we brought our daily operation on a much higher level. DCIM reveals data that was previous unavailable and unknown for us. Together with the reporting engine we now have real in-dept information about datacenter.
I am looking forward to a long cooperation with Perf-IT.
We could not operate a big datacenter like AlphaCloud, with only 3 employees, without a complete DCIM solution as Perf-IT has delivered.
Combining the EMS data with data coming from other systems, DCIM becomes an important step to operator excellence.
The EMS information is used for:
◦ Asset management
◦ Power consumption invoicing
◦ Calculating your performance
◦ Controlling your capacity and overbooking on both electrical and cooling
