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.

IBM and European Partners to Pioneer New Storage Cloud Architecture

* Secure access control allows the mother to share the video with her friends and family

* Data mobility and interoperability allow her friends and family to view the video, though they use different storage providers

* Computational storage provides safe compute power next to the video to transform it to the appropriate formats and resolutions for the personal devices of her friends and family. It also provides safe compute power next to the scan to suggest the diagnosis.

* Content centric access to the material in her safe allows it to be organized according to its content and their relationships, thereby allowing medications to be quickly identified in her medical records.

As another example, a small business may upload its financial records to a cloud to only find out at the end of the year the vendor has raised the prices of it services. Today, unless the small business is willing to pay the increased cost, its only option is to download all of the content and choose another cloud provider. With the technology of VISION Cloud, which is built on open standards, the financial data can easily be transferred from one cloud provider to another, saving the small business the trouble of downloading and securing what could amount to terabytes of data. Alternatively, the small business could have its data split across the two providers. Given the open standards of VISION Cloud, the less expensive provider could offer access to data still residing on the old provider. The transfer of data from the old provider to the new one could begin as a background process or even in an on-demand fashion.
