At this Happy New Year time of year there is no shortage of blogs, columns and advice on what you should be doing. “Ten Best Products For XYZ”, “What Every CIO Must Have on His To Do List”, “Top 10 Priorities For your Business” etc etc and on and on. So I thought I would help by suggesting what not to do.
Data centres and server rooms are “mission critical” to your organisation and need to be monitored and managed accordingly. They also cost a fortune in electricity to run. So investing in the right tools – such as the DCIM products you read about – to help you seems like a no-brainer. But wait…………some surveys of data centre managers suggest there are quite a few reasons not to invest in data centre monitoring and DCIM software – such as:-
- “DCIM is too expensive” – yes, some products are very expensive and some pricing methods are very confusing
- “DCIM products don’t integrate with our existing
hardware and software” – sure, many are inflexible and perhaps even tied to one hardware vendor
- “DCIM solutions are too complex” – absolutely, some are really complex to configure and set up let alone learn how to use
But it doesn’t have to be that way and that is why we develop InSite software.
Our customers find InSite cost-effective, flexible, easy-to-use and it delivers rapid
RoI. And, leveraging investments you have already made, InSite makes it easy for you to get started on seeing what is happening in your data centre. Perhaps these benefits are interesting to you, too. Go on – get 2013 off to a flyer and get in touch to find out more.
