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.

Broadcom Enables Programmable 100-GbE Switches

April 25, 2012 09:00 AM
With Internet back-haul switches being asked to handle exponentially more traffic, most service provider and Internet back-haul networks are going to completely skip over the 40 GbE step and go straight to 100 GbE. Broadcom has introduced a new line of switch processors that can be reprogrammed to add new functionality to the switch and support new protocols as they come along.

Is Your Network Ready For Romley?

March 26, 2012 09:00 AM
Server manufacturers have been quick to roll out new models designed to run on Intel’s new Xeon E5 family of processors, a.k.a. Romley, which touts an 80% performance improvement over earlier Xeon versions. As surely as the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, a boost in server performance is going to demand a bigger network pipeline. Networking vendors and other industry experts think the introduction of Romley is going to be a significant catalyst for adoption of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity to replace 1 GbE switches running in networks today.

Emulex and Mellanox Drive Down 10 Gig Cost

February 14, 2012 12:15 PM
While we've grown to believe that technologies follow steady geometric price decreases with confidence-inspiring names like Moore's or Kryder's Laws, the truth is market forces aren't as predictable as the word "law" would imply. Those of us who follow the Ethernet market are used to an occasional vendor making a dramatic price move for its own reasons. Most recently, Emulex and Mellanox are making moves to make 10-Gbps Ethernet cheaper.
