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.

SolarWinds Offers Free Virtualization Management Tool

August 30, 2010 10:00 AM
SolarWinds has released a free tool, VM Console, for managing ESX-based virtual machines. VM Console can shut down and restart a VM--also known as "bouncing a VM"--and track multiple VMs from a dashboard without administrators having to log in to VMware's vCenter or vSphere. It also lets administrators track up/down status and take a snapshot to compare the VM before and after it's bounced. Administrators can also search VM names or IP addresses. The company, which develops management software such as Orion Network Performance Monitor, has a mandate to release at least one new, free tool on a quarterly basis.

Snapshot Caveats On VMware VI4

February 17, 2010 09:00 AM
A typical morning in IT: The phone rings first thing in the morning and a mail server is down. Since e-mail is the lifeblood of every organization, this is the type of problem that can seriously ruin your day. The cause: A VMware ESX snapshot gone awry and the disk files have used up all available space on the datastore. On powering up the virtual machine, I was greeted with an error message that the "RedoLog" was corrupt and the machine needed to be powered off. My subsequent investigation into what went wrong and how it could be fixed revealed to me that the net was woefully inadequate in describing the problem and providing a remedy.
