The Importance Of Rich Power Data

In a recent article on, called ‘Nate Silver, Rich Data, and DCIM’, author Gregg Primm addresses the problem data center managers are facing on a day to day basis: The lack of truly reliable rich data to ensure operational efficiency.

The article explains the difference between big data – massive, undifferentiated deluge of data points – and rich data – data that has been processed and refined, eliminating the extraneous and leaving only the valuable information which can be used for predicting, planning and decision making. It is clear that rich data is the most valuable of both types of data.

But in order to obtain rich data you need quantity, quality and variety.

To quote Mr. Primm: “This can be obtained by using the right combination of hardware that automatically generates and delivers the needed data and a good software tool that helps the user to correlate the vast amount of big data into rich data, by perceiving patterns and trends … and ultimately to make informed decisions.”

This is where Racktivity comes in.
