Inside IT: Exploring DCIM for Intel’s Data Centers
IT Best Practices: Episode 77 – DCIM is Data Center Infrastructure Management. It’s the marriage of information technology and data center facility management. A DCIM solution looks to extend the traditional data center management function. It’s an area of great interest to Intel’s Paul Vaccaro, Data Center Architect with Intel’s IT Group. In this podcast we talk with Vaccaro about the monitoring, management, and capacity planning of all physical assets and resources in the data center. We’ll also discuss how the worlds of IT and facilities have historically been separate, and how a DCIM solution promises to bridge the gap between the two disciplines.
