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.

Rise Of HTML5 Brings With It Security Risks

January 24, 2012 08:30 AM
HTML5 is the new "it" protocol on the Internet. Among other things, it is an alternative to Adobe's Flash for displaying content through a Web browser. No less an industry authority than the late Steve Jobs declared in 2010 that browsers on Apple devices such as the iPad would support HTML5 and not Flash. But as HTML5 gains wider adoption, some of its security flaws are beginning to get noticed, including the WebSocket specification that renders Web pages more quickly than does Flash.

Start Planning Your Ipv6 Transition Now

January 13, 2012 09:20 AM
Businesses need to begin moving now to the IPv6 standard for Internet addresses from the IPv4 standard because IPv4 addresses are running out quickly, states The Internet Society (ISOC). It says while businesses that operate websites are more aware about the coming IPv6 standard than they were a year or so ago, they need to start planning for the transition in 2012. To accelerate the transition, the group is introducing a Web portal, called Deploy 360, to better inform companies of what they have to do to prepare.

IPv6: Unstoppable Force Meets Immovable Object

October 18, 2011 08:00 AM
What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? In this case, the unstoppable force is the accelerating growth of the Internet combined with the imminent end of available IPv4 addresses. The current demand for Internet addresses has been averaging 250 million per year, but the ongoing growth of mobile connections is expected to surge 11% to 5.6 billion this year, according to Gartner. Meanwhile, the nascent machine-to-machine connectivity market--or, the "Internet of Things"--is expected to add 25 billion connections by 2015.

What Goes Around Comes Around: Google's Recursive DNS

December 05, 2009 10:35 AM
Google's announcement about their DNS service is naturally making waves among the Interneterati. Some think it's risky (no, encryption won't help). Some think it's good for DNS in general. It's neither of these things. It's a DNS service that Google thinks will make browsing better and a potential research tool.

Cisco Blurring Lines Between Enterprise, Consumer Net

November 03, 2009 11:06 AM
Analysts who've lately focused on a Cisco's decade-long buying binge will surely weigh in on the networking powerhouse's Monday announcement that it plans to acquire Hong Kong set-top-box maker DVN. Yet most of these financial musings, which focus on Cisco's stock price, are missing the point. It's all about bandwidth, stupid.
