PresentationData Center Operation: IT Optimize increases utilization of infrastructure and IT assets through accurate, detailed power consumption profile of data centers, server by server and rack by rack. IT Optimize monitors IT asset utilization and power consumption to help reduce costs associated with over-provisioning, underutilization, and imbalanced power and cooling throughout the data center. Business critical analytics tie IT costs to business groups for chargeback, provide critical information for build vs. buy decisions and track capacity at the rack, row and room level. At the core of IT Optimize is the GenomeTM library, which continually discovers and monitors individual IT components and collects information to keep track of server specific information. The information forms the building blocks for understanding IT energy consumption and how it impacts the business.
