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.

What's Right And Wrong About IOV On The Motherboard

October 21, 2010 09:00 AM
Two months ago we were talking about when IOV would make it to the motherboard. Representatives from Xsigo played down the whole concept, arguing it was still premature . Perhaps they were right, or perhaps it was just misdirection on the part of Jon Toor, vice president of marketing at Xsigo, because buried in the details of HP's new server introduction, the SL6500 was IOV on the motherboard. The back and forth illustrates what's right and wrong in today's IOV world.

Mellanox NICs Available For Dell Hardware

October 05, 2010 10:00 AM
In a move that could make InfiniBand technology more widely available, Mellanox Technologies has made its ConnectX-2 I/O mezzanine adapter card available through Dell for the PowerEdge M1000e Dell Chassis and M-Series Blade Servers. The ConnectX-2 mezzanine cards can be used with both Dell's 10Gb Ethernet Pass Through II module or the Mellanox InfiniScale IV InfiniBand-based M3601Q blade switch. This means that M-Series servers can attach to either InfiniBand or 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks using the same card, which can automatically sense the appropriate speed. InfiniBand supports speeds of up to 40Gbps and offers lower latency than other communications protocols.

Interop: Weaving New Fabrics

April 29, 2010 10:00 AM
I sat down and said, with a grin, "Infiniband is dead." Asaf Somekh VP of marketing and Christy Lynch, director of corporate communications for Voltaire, took the shot well, but my comment framed the conversation in a way that was useful. Over the last few days at Interop, the differentiator--the long term differentiator--in Ethernet switching is not going to be speeds and feeds. Network performance will always improve, sometimes in baby steps, sometimes in leaps. The differentiator is services, which aren't cut from the same cloth.

Mellanox: Pushing Infiniband With New Product

April 13, 2010 11:30 AM
Mellanox Technologies has announced its second generation of InfiniBand switches and FabricIT chassis management software to support a wider range of users. The company had said in mid-2009 that it intended to do a family of switches, as well as a cabling solution, which it also announced. Mellanox, based in Yokneam, Israel, now offers IS5000 20 and 40Gbs switches ranging from 36 to 648 ports.

Voltaire Splits Nanoseconds With Grid Director

January 28, 2010 08:30 AM
You probably wouldn't think that spending a thousand dollars to save a second of productivity would be a worthwhile investment. Nor would your CFO. Yet the makers of a device costing $34,000 hope you'll spend that much to save a few hundred nanoseconds. The company is Voltaire, and its device is the Grid Director 4036E, a high-performance InfiniBand-Ethernet switch and IP accelerator that it claims delivers lower network latency than competitive products and gives securities trading applications a decided edge. The Grid Director 4036E will cost about US$1000 per port.
