 Data centre manager

As your organisation's Data Centre Manager, you've traditionally been responsible for keeping the IT infrastructure within your data centre − including servers, storage and the data centre network – running at peak performance.

However, today, simply operating this infrastructure isn't enough – as technology has evolved, so has your remit and scope of responsibility. Service level expectations on the part of your end users continue to rise. How to you ensure optimum application responsiveness?  How can you improve energy efficiency and drive down energy costs? What about the need to guarantee compliance?

Additional challenges may include:

  • keeping up with the pace of technology change
  • managing capex expenditure
  • responding quickly to business requirements
  • meeting the expectations of business stakeholders to deliver competitively-differentiated value
  • determining whether to retain physical facilities or move to a cloud-based model
  • managing ever-increasing volumes of data
