Bull helps organisations manage their data centres in the face of new energy issues

9 Dec 2013 Paris - Bull is offering an innovative approach to data centre and energy management: DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management).

The management of energy and infrastructures is becoming a crucial challenge for data centre managers. Lack of space, rising energy bills, environmental constraints, additional charges and degradation of service levels because of fragmented management: all point towards the need for an industrial-scale approach to data centre management.

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is an approach to data centre transformation that involves both facilities management and the IT Department. Its goal is to optimize all the various elements of the data centre, from the building itself to the IT infrastructure. By providing more accurate, shared information, along with more clearly defined roles, DCIM ensures that costs are kept under control, optimizes resources and delivers measurable, guaranteed levels of performance.

DCIM offers numerous benefits, the most significant of which are:

  • Energy savings
  • Improved business/user productivity
  • Faster data gathering and reporting
  • Fewer SLA (Service Level Agreement) penalties
  • High availability for critical systems.

Every situation is unique, so the implementation of a DCIM does not simply come down to the deployment of a new tool: it is a genuine transformation project requiring specific, long-term support.

In order to implement the most appropriate DCIM for each data centr and the business needs it serves, Bull has developed a staged approach to providing support: from upfront consultancy right through to the integration of dedicated software suites and monitoring of services. Bull currently relies on data centre infrastructure management solutions from its partner CA Technologies, which cover the entire spectrum of data centre supervision metrics.
