What is Data Center Infrastructure Management?

Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) converges IT and data center facilities to reduce data center energy consumption, reduce operating expenses and optimize efficiency. This process can be facilitated with the use of DCIM software tools that help administrators take a holistic view of the data center, from the rack to the cooling infrastructure, and spot any issue that may compromise performance. Such tools also support real-time analysis, planning and control, and can include 3D virtualization.
