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.

EMC Sees Big Opportunity In Big Data

February 14, 2011 04:49 PM
According to an EMC-sponsored IDC report, the amount of data amassed by consumers and businesses is expected to increase by 44 times in this decade. A lot of that information will be what many, including EMC, call big data. Obviously, big data requires storage and other products and services that the company provides, so it should come as no surprise that, in its recent blizzard of announcements, EMC targeted big data as one of its key markets. Let's try to understand big data and what it means, and then briefly illustrate how EMC is addressing the big data market through its recent acquisitions of Isilon and Greenplum.

EMC Buys Data Warehousing Vendor

July 08, 2010 09:00 AM
EMC announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Greenplum, a provider of analytic database management systems. Once it's finalized, the deal will give EMC the software it needs to compete more directly in the fast-growing data warehousing and petabytes-scale analytics market. Greenplum has been a pioneer in developing massively parallel, scale-out architectures on commodity X86 hardware. Founded in 2003, the privately held company has more than 100 customers, including marquis accounts Skype, Equifax, and NASDAQ. Greenplum has stayed focused on developing its database management system (DBMS), letting customers deploy the software on suggested configurations of third-party hardware. EMC has been a long-term storage partner. Upon completion of the deal, expected in the third quarter, Greenplum will become the foundation of a new data computing product division within EMC's Information Infrastructure business.
