Now , they claim 80 – 100 users , about a 900 % increase . The data centre team is now further elevated in the organisation .
Users of second-generation DCIM also report greatly improved accuracy of their assets and connectivity . To confirm an asset ’ s location , they no longer have to either physically visit the data centre , wait on slow and clunky first-generation DCIM , or rely on manual and error-prone spreadsheets . Second-generation DCIM enables an always-accurate view of what ’ s in the data centre and where it is . With modern DCIM , Metronom spends 90 % less time checking equipment and UF Health Shands improved asset tracking efficiency by 50 %.
Organisations are also significantly reducing operating expenses by identifying and utilising stranded capacity . By getting the most out of their existing resources , they can defer buildouts of new server-ready cabinets that cost US $ 15 – 20,000 each . Customers are achieving this by leveraging Auto Power Budget , a second-generation DCIM feature that automatically calculates an accurate power budget number for each make and model instance of a device based upon the actual measured load of that device in its environment running its applications . With this feature , Comcast gets 40 % more utilisation out of its existing resources . eBay can deploy projects with 33 % fewer cabinets , saving it US $ 120,000 in a single project .
Finally , data centre managers are leveraging second-generation DCIM to help meet their corporate sustainability goals . For example , Vodafone uses DCIM to accurately measure , monitor and document the environment and power telemetry in its data centres . It is then able to intelligently implement strategies like raising cold aisle temperatures to save large amounts of energy and money . �
