Data Centre Infrastructure Management Overview
Worldwide demand for new and more powerful IT-based applications, combined with the economic benefits of consolidation of physical assets, has led to an unprecedented expansion of data centres in both size and density.
Limitations of space and power, along with the enormous complexity of managing a large data centre, have made Data Centre Infrastructure Management more important than ever before.
MultiMedia Communications Ltd (MMC) has unparallel knowledge and experience in working with clients across various facets of Data Centre Management.
MultiMedia Communications Ltd (MMC) develops tailored solutions to fit client requirements. Once MMC Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is integrated, our dedicated team will be tasked within a data centre to oversee physical and technical issues and will provide data centre operations managers with clear visibility of all data centre assets along with their connectivity and relationships to support infrastructure – networks, copper and fibre cable cabling, power chains and cooling systems.
Having an MMC DCIM will also give the ability to easily identify, locate, visualize and manage all physical data centre assets, provision new equipment and plan capacity for future growth and/or consolidation.
