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

"We started looking at email archiving before the amendments to FRCP," says Chin, explaining that Pinnacle is now using hardware from Mimosa to archive its email.

Apparently, not all users have been as proactive as Chin and his team. "We're seeing forward progress and momentum, but, overall, companies are not ready for this legislation," says Alan Armstrong, vice president of business development at archiving vendor Fortiva.

To illustrate his point, the exec highlighted thefindings of a recent survey by Fortiva, which revealed that a surprising number of firms are either unwilling or unable to get to grips with the realities of e-discovery.

"One in five companies have settled lawsuits because they didn't want to go through the headache and cost of discovering information," says Armstrong, painting a fairly negative picture of users' e-discovery capabilities.

Worryingly, many of the 90 firms surveyed by Fortiva are also taking a cavalier approach to how they manage the issue of legal hold. "Forty-three percent of the respondents were relying on end-users to refrain from deleting emails when they were required to put out a litigation hold," he says. "Relying on the good nature of people who may be under investigation is not good common practice."
