Key Attributes of Remote Monitoring and Management for Edge Computing and Hybrid IT Environments
As more enterprise businesses embrace hybrid IT architectures, today physical infrastructure assets are distributed, with IT located on-premise, at colocation data centres, and increasingly at the network's edge. This often poses management, security and resilience issues, largely because these distributed locations are in many cases, unattended, automated, and operated on a "lights out" basis.
The use of open, interoperable, and vendor-agnostic data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) software is crucial for businesses and offers many benefits, including real-time visibility, data-driven insights and the ability to proactively mitigate downtime. In this whitepaper we explore the fundamental functions and qualities of a DCIM platform suited for hybrid IT and edge computing environments.
