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.

Wyse Can Add Up to $2.5B to Dell Revenues

During an analysts' call on Monday following the announcement, Dave Johnson, senior vice president, Dell Corporate Strategy, said Wyse has 500 employees with 150 in R&D, 140 of them in software, “which is really key.” He expects the acquisition to be accretive by the second half of this year, and while those numbers are based on Wyse continuing to match industry growth rates, he believes its much higher growth levels and access to Dell's broader portfolio of products, services and 100,000 resellers will result in much higher growth.

Clarke says Dell isn't seeing a mass migration to alternative computing. Adoption rates are low, but many are kicking the tires, and he thinks this is an opportunity around verticals like government, healthcare and financial services.

The Wyse portfolio includes a wide selection of secure, reliable, cost-effective thin and zero clients designed to easily integrate into any virtualized or Web-based infrastructure, cloud software, management software, virtualization software, mobility software and services. Dell says it will grow and foster existing relationships with thin client and virtualization partners like VMware, Microsoft and Citrix.

Dell has had an ongoing relationship with Wyse for many years, says the company. The company also says it is "excited" about the potential to bring WYSE IP in thin client and mobile device management into the Dell Systems Management portfolio. "KACE remains an important and integral part of that offering."
