The best-prepared companies not only connect to the latest and greatest technologies, but they also connect back to legacy solutions. BASELAYER’s Shay Demmons shares how to utilize legacy technology, as well as new tech, while planning for the data centers of the future.
The Intel DCM solution provided us with real-time and historical data center thermal maps and cooling analysis. The analysis covered not only servers and racks from different OEMs but also storage, networks, and facilities equipment. We were able to detect hotspots and cooling anomalies and find ”ghost” (underused) servers. Because Intel DCM was easy to implement, integrate, administer, and operate, this solution provided significant ROI in a short amount of time.
