3 Ways Data Center Automation Helps Your Company

Data center management has never been an easy proposition, but in today’s complex environment it’s even more so. Your staff is dealing with a greater number of technologies, more applications and more servers (virtual as well as physical) than ever before.

Maintaining and administering those applications and servers takes a significant chunk of your IT staffing resources. In many cases, those routine and redundant tasks are costing you much more than they need to. While virtualization and cloud computing may mitigate some of these issues, the fact of the matter is that you’re almost always going to find cases where your valuable IT staff are spending time doing relatively mundane tasks.

data center automationData center automation is the natural solution to this problem. Automation in the data center will lower your costs and increase your service levels. Here are some of the ways that data center automation will help your company:

  • More efficient use of staff. One of the first and most visible benefits to data center automation is the affect it has on your IT staff. You don’t want to pay your CCIE to perform relatively simple upgrades, for example. You’d rather have her working on engineering your next generation of network infrastructure or discovering new ways to make the data center’s communications hum along. Automation frees up those valuable staff to perform other tasks that will give your company a huge boost to productivity and efficiency.
  • Greater standardization. Automation takes the guesswork out of patching and upgrading. If you manually patch 100 servers, there is always the possibility that one of them won’t take. A single server gets out of compliance and soon you’ve got trouble across the entire data center. Automating simple tasks such as patches can avoid this kind of problem.
  • More efficient use of physical resources. The trend toward data center virtualization means that your servers really do have to perform and perform well. In the old days when there was a single physical server for any given application, underutilization became something of a safeguard. Automation of your virtualization processes allows you to more intelligently anticipate the demands that your physical resources are going to need, and to meet them without any interruption of service.
