Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Canadian Manufacturer Taps CA ARCserve For High-Speed Backup And Disaster Recovery In Virtualized Environment

The company also plans to implement CA ARCserve High Availability to help meet the rigorous SLAs it expects to establish as part of its DR strategy, which will include the efficient replication of key physical and virtual systems, applications and data to off-premise or secondary locations for maximum protection and availability.  The flexible, proactive failover provided by CA ARCserve High Availability will enable Plant Products to keep its business systems running during unplanned or planned downtime--such as when the local hydroelectric power company shuts down one of its facilities for maintenance each year.
Xylotek Solutions, a CA Technologies Gold Partner, delivered the end-to-end solution for Plant Products, from analysis and design to implementation, training and on-going support.

"We recommended the CA ARCserve family of products to Plant Products because of its strong integration with virtualization, its ability to perform disk-based backup with bare-metal restores, its deduplication functionality, and its failover protection," said Chris Pickard, COO at Cambridge, Ontario, Canada-based IT service provider Xylotek.  "We have found that CA ARCserve uniquely enables our customers to fulfill even their most demanding data protection requirements, while staying within their budget constraints for both initial acquisition and ongoing operation."
