Emerson Network Power has announced the results of its biannual Data Center Users Group survey. The survey results, which include responses from more than 170 data centre, facility, and IT managers in North America, revealed growing concern regarding adequate monitoring and data centre management capabilities as well as continued concern about data centre availability and heat density.
“Adequate monitoring and management capabilities” was the No. 1 response to the question, “What are your top three facility/network concerns?” This marks the culmination of monitoring/management’s ascent up the list of issues. Three years ago, it placed sixth among the top issues. It climbed to No. 4 in the 2008 survey and ranked No. 3 in 2009.
