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.

A Network Computing Webinar:
SDN First Steps

Thursday, August 8, 2013
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will help attendees understand the overall concept of SDN and its benefits, describe the different conceptual approaches to SDN, and examine the various technologies, both proprietary and open source, that are emerging. It will also help users decide whether SDN makes sense in their environment, and outline the first steps IT can take for testing SDN technologies.

LeCroy Announces Industry-First Single-Source Comprehensive SuperSpeed USB Test Suite

CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LeCroy Corporation, a worldwide leader in serial data test solutions, today announced the launch of the industry's first single-source lineup of test instruments to comprehensively support the USB (Universal Serial Bus) 3.0 standard, also known as SuperSpeed USB. The LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite is an integrated selection of test instruments that addresses all transmitter, receiver, TDR and protocol tests currently defined in the Universal Serial Bus 3.0 specification.

The LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite product line includes: the SDA 813Zi oscilloscope for physical layer transmitter verification, compliance and debug; the protocol-enabled receiver and transmitter tolerance tester, PeRT3(TM), for receiver testing; the WaveExpert(TM) sampling oscilloscope for critical characterization and TDR measurements; and the world's first USB 3.0 protocol analyzer exerciser platform, the Voyager(TM) verification system, addresses the protocol layer. Automated easy-to-use QualiPHY(TM) physical layer compliance software, and USB 3.0 test fixtures are included for rapid debugging and unmatched accuracy as well as full compliance testing.

"Through LeCroy's leadership in oscilloscope and protocol analyzer technology, we have developed the first complete single-source suite of SuperSpeed USB test solutions for developers' physical and protocol layer testing needs," said LeCroy Vice President and Chief Technology Officer David Graef. "LeCroy's QualiPHY automated compliance test software is the only solution available that fully integrates transmitter and receiver testing, by simultaneously controlling both the SDA 813Zi oscilloscope and the PeRT3 to produce a full compliance report with transmitter and receiver results."

LeCroy's PeRT3 is the only tool that can manage issues such as the insertion or deletion of SKP symbols without losing lock during automated testing programs and correctly measure BER (bit error rate). Because the PeRT3 combines the functions and features of a signal generator, bit error rate tester (BERT), protocol editor and serial data analysis system into one instrument, it is able to fully characterize the receiver tolerance envelope through the controlled introduction of various types and levels of signal stress (e.g., increased jitter) while monitoring signal integrity.

In addition, the LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite includes the preeminent solution for USB 3.0 compliance verification, the Voyager protocol analyzer exerciser system. A full function analyzer, it is capable of recording and analyzing traffic between both USB 2.0 or 3.0 devices. The integrated exerciser can emulate USB 3.0 device behaviors to allow functional, reliability, and performance testing.
