eWeek for Intel
October 29, 2015
Inefficiencies are costing data centers time and money, while 43 percent of data centers rely on manual methods for capacity planning and forecasting, according to an Intel survey of 200 data center managers across the U.S. and U.K.The manual approach is not limited to smaller data centers by any means; the proportion was found to remain the same even among the larger data centers (with above 1,500 servers).
“We believed many data center operators had manual processes for monitoring IT device power and thermals, but we were surprised that it was as high as 40 percent,” Jeff Klaus, general manager of data center solutions at Intel DCM, told eWEEK. “As I speak at data center conferences around the world, we continue to be the first to educate operators and cloud service providers about the existing capabilities inside the servers they have already purchased – where they can leverage powerful agentless tools to expose and orchestrate telemetry data and provide simplified analysis on their environment.”
