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.

March 11, 2010 02:50 PM

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.

VMware Go: The Hyper-V Killer?

January 27, 2010 10:30 AM
For a long time, if there is such a thing as a "long time" in the virtualization space, Microsoft's Hyper-V has had a significant advantage over VMware in IT shops that are just dipping their toes in the virtualization waters. Administrators could choose between the familiar, comfortable interface of Windows or grapple with the perceived interface and complexity of VMware. Not much of a choice. VMware Go should change all of that. VMware Go ESXi isn't a new operating environment as it is a wizard-driven deployment of ESXi servers. It's meant for small business interested in using virtualization, but who may have been put off by the complexity of learning a new environment. In effect, it removes much of the advantage Hyper-V has had in selling a Windows environment.
