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.

Broadweave Networks And Veracity Communications Merger Expands Local Offerings


PROVO, Utah, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadweave Networks and Veracity Communications today announced a merger of the two companies to form Veracity Networks, a premier, local, provider of telecommunications services. The combined companies will continue to serve more than 20,000 customers in Utah, while opening the doors to new customers eager to enjoy the benefits of fiber optic services. Veracity Networks will combine superior customer service with advanced technology platforms and a powerful fiber optic network to deliver the best in Internet, phone, and video services to local customers.

"By joining forces to create Veracity Networks, we have a significant opportunity to grow the business while providing customers with leading edge technologies," said Dave Moon, CEO of Broadweave Networks. "In addition, we are keeping the business local so the combined workforce of nearly 100 employees will continue to focus on providing the best possible customer service and care."

"It is important to customers to have a strong, local, provider that lives and works in their community - this means more dollars and jobs for our local economy and is critical in delivering First Class Service," said Drew Peterson, CEO of Veracity Communications. "By understanding the local issues and needs, Veracity Networks will be far more responsive than any national provider."

Broadweave Networks and Veracity Communications have experienced tremendous growth in customers and revenues over the past year, but with growth comes capital needs for infrastructure, equipment and new customer installs. By joining forces, both companies will be able to realize economies of scale to reduce costs and make it possible to expand more quickly.

"We are excited at the proposed opportunities and benefits that Veracity Networks will provide our business," said Dave Elkington, CEO of Insidesales.com, a Veracity customer. "We look forward to building our business with the same great products and services we have always enjoyed."
