As colocations take on new challenges, the complexity and physical limitations of the data center can produce new operational burdens.
These challenges can impact the tenant experience as well as the colocations bottom line. The operational challenges of the dynamic data center can include:
- The provisioning of critical components to optimize power, space, and cooling scheduled to tenant needs.
- Achieving infrastructure automation for critical activity at the tenant level while managing business service levels and automation of global ecosystems.
- Tracking resource allocation to power the data center in support of tenant business.
- Enabling control of the colo workload that is consistent with tenant business SLA’s.
Without the proper tools to manage these data centers, it is extremely difficult to maintain flexibility and reduce operating and capital expenses.
