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.

Data Caps And Treating Employees Like Adults

March 27, 2012 01:40 PM
Carriers like AT&T and Verizon Wireless are using data caps to manage the explosive growth in 3G/4G data consumption. Hey, kids--the 1990s called and wants its bandwidth management strategy back. As Lee Badman points out in "4G? No, It's More Like 4Gee!" the data rates available to wireless consumers are growing rapidly and our demand is keeping pace. When you have high demand and data caps, the chance of overages is very likely, and the last thing anyone wants is out-of-control telecom costs. Consumers don't have much choice in managing data caps, but enterprises have more options.

Time To Buckle Down And Start An IPv6 Project

February 08, 2012 11:00 AM
While the Internet Society (ISOC), a global Internet standards-setting group, has seen a pickup in adoption of IPv6 by some measures, conversion from the IPv4 standard is still relatively slow. The ISOC has scheduled another IPv6 Day for June 6, hoping to build on the momentum for adoption of the new Internet Protocol from IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011. In a three-part series, Network Computing will look at how companies can develop a road map for IPv6 conversion, the technical implications of running IPv6 on an existing IPv4 network, and what compliance and security issues have to be addressed in a transition.

Getting To Know 4G

July 21, 2010 10:30 AM
Just like 802.11n was a world-shaker in the WiFi realm, mobile telecommunications networks are beginning to experience a significant leap forward in capability. And just like with the "artistic marketing license" taken by WiFi 11n makers (9 times the old stuff! 6 times bigger this and that!), you have to dig through the PR to figure out what's really coming with the new 4G (4th Generation) mobile networks.
