Fujitsu Data Center Management & Automation: Solutions
Our Data Center Management & Automation portfolio comprises solutions for process automation, service level management – service quality management and energy management in the data center.
To automate processes and achieve promised efficiency gains, the underlying technology has to scale to fit redesigned processes. And then processes have to be integrated into unified workflows that enable data centers to deliver complete IT services rather than IT systems. By leveraging the implementation of ITIL® (ITIL® is a Registered Trade Mark of AXELOS Limited)-compliant processes, IT managers can raise the efficiency in their data centers. Process automation provides the expertise to efficiently manage and handle defined, recurring processes. It includes procedures for anticipated scenarios to determine the effective course of action.
Service Level Management – Service Quality Management
Service Level Management (SLM) keeps service quality transparent by constantly monitoring data center service quality and automating customer processes to integrate people, IT processes and technologies into the IT service supply chain. Together with our technology partner CA Technologies, we provide the entire solution stack, with standard procedures, how-to descriptions and best practices for rapid implementation.
Energy Management in the Data Center
Data centers are major consumers of energy. No surprise then, given the spiraling cost of power, that organizations are seeking effective ways to monitoring the energy efficiency of their data centers and IT environment center. Fujitsu provides a solution to monitor data center energy consumption and deliver server and storage reports that help to identify the equipment that is consuming the most. The data, mapped to an intuitive dashboard, helps organizations optimize their use of IT resources and reduce cost.
