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

"It takes away from IT efficiency if a firm can't re-use their backup tapes," says Campbell, adding that tapes are also difficult and expensive to search when it comes to e-discovery. "The cost that we see to restore a single backup tape for e-discovery can be between $3,000 and $4,000 per tape."

Bring data into an archiving system specifically designed for e-discovery is a much more cost-effective option, according to Campbell.

Symantec, of course, is one of a number of vendors playing in the e-discovery space, but at least one user is sold on e-discovery archive technology. Pinnacle Financial's Chin told Byte and Switch that he has managed to free up space on his mail server by deploying the archiving system.

"A lot of people find that, after six months, their nightly backups go faster, and the reliability of their mail server increases," he says.
