FNT Data Center Capacity Management

Know What You Have in Your Data Center, What You Need and How to Optimize the Use of Resources

Data centers are at the heart of today’s information economy. They are the control centers that keep information flowing throughout the enterprise. Having the right processes, tools and methodologies to accurately manage capacity is critical for staying competitive in today’s on-demand digital world.

For an organization to effectively use information, it relies on a vast and expanding array of IT services. These services are controlled by data center facilities. Today’s digitally transforming economy places new requirements on data centers, which must keep up with different types and increased volume of workloads.

FNT’s Data Center Capacity Management helps make sense of all the information flowing through the various systems that comprise the data center. With a clear view of current capacity status and forecasted requirements, management can determine the need for and prioritize investments in alternatives such as colocation, public cloud and managed hosting services, as well as operational considerations.
See the Big Picture
For a data center to operate as efficiently as possible the use of all resources needs to be optimized. To fully understand the current state, projected needs and ability to handle, enterprises and multi-tenant data centers (MTDC) should evaluate both the physical plant and the overall operational approach to the data center. FNT’s Data Center Capacity Management makes it easy to run analyses that deliver this intelligent self-assessment about existing resources and infrastructure.

The goal is to achieve a required degree of optimization. This is only possible when processes for routinely reviewing, analyzing and planning capacity within the data center are in place. Any analysis of infrastructure should have a lens for both current and future computing requirements, and be inclusive of core computing resources, power and cooling resources, and overall data center floor space. When these components are collectively evaluated, more informed decisions can be made and enterprises can focus on the key issues: how to integrate and capitalize on the combination of today’s data center resources, and where they should invest in the future.

Reduce Complexity
In today’s digital economy enterprise IT uses a combination of colocation, cloud and in-house data centers. In such a complex network, it can be overwhelming to keep track of all the moving parts. Centrally managing data center resources is essential to gain an accurate and meaningful understanding about the assets, resource use and operational status of your site.

Data Center Capacity Management supports centralized management of data center capacity planning, design and implementation. Solution components cover all relevant features for facility, IT and data center management teams to optimize the use of all their resources and facilitate day to day activities. Additionally, knowing about all resources is valuable for management in order to make decisions based on reliable and accurate data.
