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.

FRCP Still Posing Challenges

Other indications nonetheless suggest that many firms are still struggling with some of the technology aspects of the FRCP amendments.

Dragging Their Feet

Even one year on, a large number of enterprises are still not where they need to be with regard to the FRCP amendments, warns Rick Chin, senior vice president of IT at Orlando, Fla.-based financial services company Pinnacle Financial.

"My experience of talking to other IT managers is that the vast majority of them are not ready for this at any kind of level," he told Byte and Switch. "I would say that a lot of people haven't acted on this yet, and opened themselves up to a lot of risk."

The exec explained that, the timing of the amendments, right at the end of 2006, came at a bad time for many organizations. "A lot of people were at the end of a budget year, and were not able to act quickly," he says, adding that Pinnacle avoided this by starting its FRCP work early.
