Data Center Infrastructure Management Software

Data Center Infrastructure Management Software Overview

What is Data Center Infrastructure Management Software?

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Software provides centralized management of data center performance, as well as general data center modeling tools. This may encompass health tracking and alerting features (e.g. cooling and wiring monitoring, disaster alerts, etc) and also capacity planning, migration or modernization.


Beyond preventing disaster or downtime, data gleaned from DCIM can be used for auditing and policy compliance ascertainment. Also, DCIM have evolved to accommodate the modern data center. This means they may also track cloud servers and assets, and software. This includes hypervisors and virtual machines (VMs), as well as potentially complex customer resource allocations and application mapping.

Features of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Software:

DCIM software generally provides the following features:

  • Data center device discovery

  • Special support for data center equipment (e.g. chilled water system)

  • Rack space planning and floor space management

  • Graphical depiction for spatial / location data (e.g. rack height, cable placement)

  • Connectivity analysis & management

  • Capacity utilization, heatmap

  • Network downtime or loss testing impact modeling

  • Customer resource allocation tracking

  • Dynamic power chain analysis and fault simulation

  • Support for multiple communication protocols

  • Energy cost and utilization analysis

  • Temperature tracking, cooling management

  • Configurable alarm threshold

  • Tracking for physical, virtual, and cloud-assets

  • KPI tracking

  • Open API and software integrations for data sharing

Pricing Information

Pricing of DCIM packages tends to vary a great deal. They scale with the complexity of features desired, which corresponds to the complexity of data center. Simpler packages may supply only asset discovery and performance tracking. Configuration, patching, and software maintenance increase cost of deployment. Pricing also scales directly with data center size. A larger number of assets (e.g. nodes, cabinets, cloud instances, virtual machines) means greater cost. Monthly or annual subscription-based licensing are common, rather than perpetual licensing.
