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.

Dell KACE's K3000 Offers On-Premises MDM Alternative

New MDM appliance offers a new option for BYOD programs as well as a look at how Dell is managing its various acquisitions.

Dell World headlines might have emphasized high-profile keynote speakers and the company's evolution from hardware maker to service provider, but the event also saw several new products launches, including the K3000, an MDM appliance from Dell KACE. Equipped with a simple Web-based dashboard for managing smartphones and tablets, the K3000 broadens Dell's mobility portfolio while also providing insight into how the company is handling its numerous acquisitions.

The K3000 allows IT administrators to wrangle mobile devices by providing expected features such as the ability to define user permissions and push apps and patches over the air, and tools to remotely lock, reset, or wipe devices. It also lets admins track device locations, monitor which apps are installed on a specific device, and even see how much battery life remains on a given smartphone or tablet. On the security front, it integrates SonicWall to allow mobile users to securely access data behind the corporate firewall. Read full story on InformationWeek
