Modern data centers are growing in density and complexity as IT devices require more and more power to racks. This can lead to issues with power distribution, cabling, and cooling, and challenges data center managers to keep pace with the ever-increasing demands of IT infrastructure.
To stay ahead of the rising power requirements for critical infrastructure in racks while reducing complexity, many data center managers deploy overhead busways for their power distribution architecture. The benefits of busways can be found in increased space capacity, flexibility, energy efficiency, scalability, modularity, reliability, customizability, and safety. Busways also reduce construction costs, construction time, maintenance time, and human error.
Yet, without a monitoring solution, you may not be getting the most out of your busways. That is why the best data center managers leverage Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software to centrally monitor all their tap boxes.
Monitoring busways with DCIM software makes it easy to:
- Maintain uptime.
- Improve the efficiency of capacity utilization
- Increase the productivity of people
From hundreds of discussions with our customers, we have first-hand knowledge on how and why they use DCIM software to monitor their busway tap boxes. In this eBook, we have compiled their feedback into the top 10 reasons why you should monitor your busways.
