GlassHouse Technologies, a leading independent IT infrastructure consulting and services firm, has announced it has acquired London-based data center services company, Data Center Moves International (DCMI). This acquisition expands the suite of data center services GlassHouse is able to offer its clients and provides them with a proprietary software tool that manages the entire migration process and helps identify strategies for creating a 'green' data center. DCMI, founded by Martin Williams, created a proprietary framework to manage the entire data center migration process. Central to their seven phase process is a software tool which facilitates a production line methodology and supports the specific, often complex tasks involved in a data center migration. Working as a single point of information for the entire process, the software-based tool ties applications to physical devices, allowing clients to see which devices are using power and other resources, increasing visibility into the environment and accounting for costs. For data center managers tasked with 'green' initiatives, the data center migration and consolidation service helps determine ways to shrink the carbon footprint and expend less energy through consolidation of resources. The DCMI team will be integrated into GlassHouse's existing organization under the Data Center Services practice led by Bill Peldzus, Director of Data Center Services, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.
