To meet the new demands being placed on data centers, industry leaders must rethink the way they approach their environment, delivery model and how they can leverage the cloud. What’s often overlooked is the human component. Human errors resulting from tedious tasks and manual processes are costly, especially considering they’re the cause of most data center outages. The future requires a shift to support observability, resiliency, and improved data center operations.

This special report, courtesy of Honeywell, outlines strategies for data center leaders as they move away from traditional data center management concepts and design the future of digital infrastructure. First, the report explores how new digital solutions can create new design and partner considerations. It then looks at several observability considerations needed to support the new digital infrastructure.

The report includes several potential scenarios to illustrate how tools such as integrated asset and life safety protection, physical security, and OT cybersecurity assessment and solutions can improve data center operations and help reduce risk. Finally, the special report provides tips for identifying a good partner that can develop and deliver the necessary technologies to address the challenges faced by data centers.
