Rising 5G Network Deployment Driving Data Center Infrastructure Management
Data center strategy needs to be planned in such a manner that the systems never
malfunction in any circumstance. As a result, data center managers are opting for data
center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions as they offer insights and visibility
by monitoring different parameters, such as the performance of data center computers and
servers, network operations, and security uptime, and resolving network issues as they
arise. Owing to these advantages, DCIM solutions are being increasingly adopted by
organizations for improving their decision-making process and by data centers for
enhancing their uptime with better energy services.
“5G Adoption Boosting Data Center Infrastructure Management Demand”
The surging use of such solutions can be credited to the increasing deployment of 5G
network, which enables smooth movement of data between locations. This novel
communication technology will offer support
for extensive machine-to-machine
communications, with around 100,000 connections per square kilometer. 5G also plays a
significant role in establishing smart cities, which generate a huge volume of data that
needs to be managed efficiently. Thus, the rising penetration of the 5G network, will steer
the data center infrastructure management market growth during 2021–2030.
According to P&S Intelligence, the market reached $1,425.6 million revenue in 2020.
At present, DCIM solutions offered by Panduit Corporation, Infosys Ltd., ABB Ltd.,
IBM Corporation, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Modius Inc., CommScope Inc., Nlyte
Software, Delta Electronics Inc., NTT DATA Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise,
Raritan Inc., and Cisco Systems Inc. are mostly used for asset management application.
In recent years, information technology (IT) asset management has become very difficult
due to the surging complexities of the systems. Many small organizations use paper and
pen and spreadsheet-based solutions to track their IT assets, which cannot
