Data center and its digital transformation

The former monitoring tools are significantly different from modern ones, using cloud computing, analytics, and mobile applications. By analogy with the popular term "digital transformation" we will refer to monitoring of a new generation by digital monitoring. The main difference between digital monitoring and the usual one is a constant connection to a computer via a dedicated channel or via the Internet and use from machine learning to the IoT.

Do not drown in the data
In the face of growing amounts of data and information flow, it becomes more difficult for DC administrators to make the right decisions. Here are just some problems:
- Multiple messages from the same device in cases where one is enough. Excessive information causes operator fatigue, and will eventually be ignored.
- Each power supply or cooling device usually has its own controls. The lack of a unified monitoring platform and standard architecture complicates the operation of the data center.
- The escalation of the problem is escalating and its transfer to the appropriate specialist.

What should the digital monitoring service be like ?
1. Quick start-up means that within about 30 minutes you can set up the gateway, set automatic detection devices, register the software, configure the application and start monitoring the data center.
2. To set all the devices to be monitored manually is to lose a lot of time. This also increases the chance of errors. A digital monitoring system for automatic detection of device-critical devices uses the protocol (SNMP).
3. Events are processed according to priorities - the first are the most critical. This practice reduces the load on data center operators.
A data center model that uses machine learning will have enough information to fine tune the cooling system and minimize power consumption. Simulation will also predict the consumption of electricity. The data center monitoring system helps to improve operational efficiency by providing information support for the IT service. The goal of a modern monitoring system is not just to fix an abnormal situation and promptly notify about it, but in the possibility of proactive monitoring, analytics, which helps prevent incidents.
