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.

Deduplication Backup Software - Avamar

March 31, 2010 01:00 PM
As we begin our dive into deduplication backup software, we will start with the guys that started it all: Avamar.

It seems like over the past few years they have been gaining steam, driven mostly by a clear articulation of where their source-side technology plays best, especially since one of those areas seems to be the VMware use case.
