DCIM: Managing the Facilities and IT of the Data Center - Panel Session

Moderator: Zen Kishimoto, Altaterra Research; Peter Gilbert, CA Technologies; Derek Schwartz, GDCA; Robert Haggerty
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has been discussed in data center conferences and media. It is a set of tools and methods to make a data center as a whole perform optimally. Simply put, DCIM deals with mechanical and electrical systems of facilities, and power and environmental information of IT equipment. No standards have been defined yet but several functional areas have been mentioned, such as Inventory, Change, Capacity, Simulation, Monitoring and Efficiency Modeling. Many vendors have emerged with various solutions that focus on one or a few areas but not on a holistic scale. So the integration of multiple tools will be necessary to satisfy the overall needs and some vendors are working together to integrate their solutions.

But equally important is how to manage IT equipment at a higher level, such as server health, and application and service status. This is the market segment known as system management. Although DCIM and system management have been developed independent to each other, it is increasingly necessary to integrate the two to manage a data center even more efficiently. The information obtained with system management functions will become crucial to control the infrastructure sides of facilities and even IT equipment.

In this panel session, we will review DCIM solutions and how they can be integrated with system management for better design and operations of data centers. We will also discuss the impact of such integration, such as management and organizational structure. But at the same time, we need to realize that the ultimate goal of having a data center is to satisfy business goals of an enterprise with IT infrastructure, such as server health and applications status. That is why it is utmost important to integrate both IT and Facilities under common management to plan, design, monitor and control. Join this panel as these thought leaders discuss how you can use DCIM to best manage the facilities and IT within your data center.

  • Leveraging the Hybrid Cloud for Complete Data Protection Apr 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer, TenCate
    Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
    Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).

    Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.

    With Zerto Virtual Replication:
    •Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
    •Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
    •Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
    •Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
    •Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
    •Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
    •Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
  • How to Transform the Data Center with Cloud-based NAS Apr 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Fred Pinkett, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Nasuni
    The growth of unstructured data, especially files, continues unabated and strains datacenter resources. Not just storage of that data, but protecting it, providing for disaster recovery, and making that data available in remote offices for collaboration all wreak havoc on staff and budgets. It’s time for a new approach to NAS that takes advantage of the cloud, while still providing local access and performance in the datacenter.

    Learn about this new generation of NAS that solves the challenges of file data storage, protection and access across the enterprise, costs less to own and manage, and ends the cycle of NAS hardware refreshes forever.
