What is data center management?
Data center management refers to the role of individuals (data center managers) tasked within a data center to oversee technical and
IT issues. This includes management of computer and server operations, large amounts of data, services and applications, and the protection and security of the data. While some of these tasks must be directly managed, many can be automated, so you can reduce the number of on-site employees eliminate unnecessary manual tasks, and reduce associated business costs.
What problems are encountered in daily data center management?
Data center managers may struggle with the following:
-Management of multiple vendors and associated equipment, applications and operating systems with different contracts warranties, process, licenses, patches and upgrade processes.
-Management of multiple data centers with different maturity levels, diverse equipment, processes, and procedures
*Maintenance of SLAs in complex environments where there are different
requirements for application availability, data retention, speed of recovery, and network availability
*Monitoring change where there are poor or no change control processes, antiquated equipment, and challenges with keeping infrastructure up to date.
*Management of data center cost and reduced budget, where resources are
procured based on best-cost, regardless if it is deployed at the edge, virtualized, housed in a colocation, or a hybrid data center environment. Additionally, energy and cooling costs remain a high percentage of the budget.
*Deployment of new services and applications faster with limited
understanding of resource availability capacity, power, and space as well as inconsistent policies and structure.
