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.

HP Introduces New Storage Solutions

HP is announcing on Monday the general availability of the HP EVA P6000 storage appliance, the fifth generation of its Enterprise Virtual Array storage hardware line. Also at the HP Discover conference this week in Las Vegas, HP is introducing new storage hardware, software and services based on technology from recent acquisitions such as Left Hand Networks, IBRIX and 3Par.

The EVA P6000, which was available for early release to some customers in May, offers thin provisioning along with 8 Gigabit Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over Ethernet and, for the first time ever in the EVA line, 10-Gbit iSCSI connectivity support.

HP touts improved capacity, performance, ease of use, energy efficiency and other advances over previous-generation EVAs, which HP first introduced 10 years ago.

HP sees new EVA opportunities in emerging geographic markets--in places like Brazil, Malaysia and elsewhere in the Far East--by customers who want storage that is simple, general-purpose and reliable, says Tom Joyce, VP of marketing, strategy and operations in HP’s storage business unit.

“We expect over the next couple of years that we’re going to get a very significant bump in our revenue with EVA because ... we see a lot of customers around the world that are buying a lot of infrastructure for the first time and think that this would be a perfect fit for them,” Joyce says. The EVA P6000 carries a starting list price of $18,993.

HP is also introducing this fall the X5000 G2 Network Storage System, targeted at midsize business customers, that was co-developed with Microsoft to run on Windows Storage Server software for network-attached storage (NAS) environments. The list price for the X9000 starts at $32,000. The E5000 introduced earlier this year supports Microsoft Exchange.
