Smaller, local edge computing sites are often geographically dispersed, multiple in number, and lacking IT staff. This creates infrastructure management and maintenance challenges that make it difficult to maintain availability of the IT in an efficient manner.
Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software tools are critical to addressing these challenges. Modern, next-generation DCIM apps simplify infrastructure management while improving
This paper describes:
- Essential DCIM functions for ensuring high resiliency at the edge
- Attributes of next-generation DCIM platforms optimized for use with multiple,
highly distributed, and unmanned local edge computing sites
- Tips on how to get started with and use the tools
