As the choices of technical computing methods and data center technologies continue to evolve, management processes are being forced to evolve faster as data is re-used across multiple hardware and software platforms types.
In addition, regulatory requirements are now influencing data center strategy to cover increased control and governance as well as reduced cost and computing delivery on demand. Managing change within data centers is becoming so complex, that baselining of existing environments and dependencies for change processes can be almost impossible without focused management involvement.
Join this session with David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, Infrastructure Visualisation and Data Centre Management Specialist, as he looks at practical methods and approaches to simplify IT systems complexity making it easier to meet existing and new IT management challenges.

Lenovo XClarityTM Energy Manager helps you reduce the cost of powering your data center. XClarity Energy Manager is an easy to use application that analyzes and controls power consumption and temperature for groups of servers. By analyzing power and temperature data, XClarity Energy Manager helps data center administrators establish policy-based control over data center energy optimization goals which can improve business continuity and energy efficiency. Join us to see how this this application improves operation processes by:
•Monitoring energy consumption, estimating the power demand, and reallocating power to servers as needed.
•Monitoring the temperature and cooling capacity of servers and datacenter spaces.
•Sending notifications when certain events occur or when thresholds are exceeded.
•Limiting the amount of energy that an endpoint or a group consumes using policies.
•Optimizing energy efficiency by monitoring real-time inlet temperatures, identifying low-usage servers based on out-of-band power data, measuring power ranges for different server models, and evaluating how servers accommodate new workloads based on the availability of resources.
•Reducing the power consumption to a minimum level to prolong service time during an emergency power event (such as a data-center power failure).
