Data Centers


The revolution of data centers is now. The 8 million data centers that exist worldwide today will transform as information and communication technologies evolve and digital demand dominate worldwide markets. Organizations will increasingly turn to the Cloud, managed services, colocation and other hybrid approaches to test new business models, launch new offerings and connect more with their customers. By 2018, mega datacenters will play host to 70% of all service provider data center construction projects.

Luckily, an integrated data center management approach can help you address the movements by optimizing facility and IT processes end-to-end.


With an integrated data center management suite (IDCMS), you can benefit from the automation and control of cross-discipline processes to drastically reduce human errors and complexity.

IDCMS is a holistic management approach for reliable and efficient IT and facility data center operation. It offers full transparency into entire facility infrastructures, enabling a solid decision-making basis to provide operational and efficiency improvements.


Achieve:

  • Reliable and efficient operation

  • Overall cost reduction and risk mitigation

  • Easy to use and expand over time and functionality


  • Available, safe and secure infrastructure

  • Fast and better decision making due to transparent, personalized dashboards



Through a lifecycle strategy and the right tools, you can ensure your data center has the right amount of efficiency to eliminate unplanned downtime, and increase cost savings and reliability.

Siemens understands the specific requirements data centers have in terms of fire prevention, detection, response, and recovery. Data centers often present serious challenges in terms of high air velocity, complex air patterns, and high incidences of combustible materials and potential ignition sources. Heavy power loads or a defective piece of equipment can quickly lead to a short circuit or overheating with major repercussions.

With Siemens, you have a complete suite of fire-focused monitoring and data center command and control solutions that meet the highest safety standards. We integrate early warning fire detection, evacuation, and suppression systems into a single safety solution with centralized supervision and alarm handling. Our use of clean agent suppression protects your data from fire and smoke damage without harming your sensitive electronic equipment
