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.

Citrix Picks Up Teros

Citrix Systems Inc., maker of widely used application access software, has snapped up firewall vendor Teros for an undisclosed fee in an attempt to boost its application security story. (See Citrix Acquires Teros.)

The deal comes hot on the heels of Citrixs $300 million acquisition of traffic management specialist NetScaler earlier this year. Teros also joins SSL VPN/VOIP gateway vendor Net6 as part of the Citrix product family. (See Citrix to Buy NetScaler for $300M, Citrix Buys NetScaler and Citrix Buys SSL Vendor Net6.)

Teros customer Eric Beasley, senior network administrator at business process specialist Baker Hill, thinks the latest deal spells good news for users. “It makes sense to me,” he says. “I think that you’re starting to see a convergence in the market in terms of the different applications that run on a gateway.”

Specifically, Beasley is keen to see NetScaler’s load balancing technology integrated with the Teros firewall. “Some of the things that NetScaler is doing, I would like to see Teros go on top of that."

According to Citrix’s roadmap, Beasley should get his wish -- even though the timeline isn't nailed down. In a prepared statement released this morning, Citrix says it will now sell and support the Teros product line, which will be re-branded as the Citrix NetScaler Application Firewall. And while it will continue to sell the products as standalone offerings, Citrix intends to offer the Teros technology as a software module for the Citrix NetScaler application delivery system in 2006.
