Many data center automation discussions to date have been focused on DCIM and all datacenter monitoring software tends to get put into this category. However, a growing number of applications are emerging that will enable users to transition to a more business-, cost- and service-oriented view of the datacenter.
451 Research has introduced the term ‘DCSO’ (Datacenter Service Optimization) to the industry that describes “a category of integrated software tools and systems that are used proactively to manage the supply and demand of physical and virtual resources within a datacenter, and beyond it into the digital infrastructure and power chain, both dynamically and throughout the lifecycle.”
Rhonda Ascierto, Research Director, Datacenter Technologies & Eco-Efficient IT, co-author of ‘DCSO’ has been analyzing the crossroads of IT and business for more than 15 years. She will lead the panel discussion on the current status of DCSO and what benefits it provides to the datacenter business.
