Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and Government Data Center Consolidation

Posted on April 13, 2012 by Anthony Bonaventura

Over the past fifteen years or so the Federal government has nearly quadrupled the number of data centers it operates. These centers have been using less than half of their compute power despite the additional costs for infrastructure, real estate and energy which have rapidly become more expensive and unsustainable.

The Federal Data Center Consolidation’s goal is to shut down data centers the government does not need and consolidate and optimize the ones that remain to be more efficient by reducing the overall energy and real estate footprint of government data centers. This initiative also includes increasing the IT security in these data centers given the almost daily reports of cyber-attacks we hear about, let alone the ones we don’t.
