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.

Storage Vendors Show Support For VMware APIs

July 21, 2010 01:00 PM
A number of storage vendors have lined up to support VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI). The new APIs, which are designed to provide better integration with third-party storage systems, were announced as part of VMware's vSphere 4.1 release. Storage vendors, such as Compellent Technologies, CommVault, EMC, Emulex, and Hitachi Data Systems say that their storage products support or will support VAAI. The APIs should improve performance by offloading some storage functionality, such as creating copies and creating virtual machines, onto hardware. In addition, VMware claims VAAI offers up to a tenfold improvement in scalability.
