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.

Harnessing vSphere Performance Benefits For NUMA: Part 2

December 14, 2009 05:32 PM
In my last post I talked a great deal about native support for NUMA in vSphere on enabled Opteron and Nehalem processor platforms. NUMA is a strong technology in and of itself, but it really starts to shine when teamed with other supporting technologies. In this post, I'm going to cover the details of integrating next generation networking and interrupt technologies to improve storage and networking performance. I'll focus on MSI-X, but future posts will cover VMDq, RSS and Multiple Queue's in more detail, as all these technologies work closely to distribute load to multi-core CPUs and dramatically improve system performance.

Linesider Overdrive Automates Network Management

October 22, 2009 12:00 PM
One of the thornier issues with building a dynamic infrastructure for a data center or campus LAN is creating a simple, robust, and reliable management system to configure network connectivity. Unless you have the luxury of designing a brand new network, chances are you have a mix of routers, switches and network gear from more than one vendor. Linesider Overdrive Network Services Virtualization Platform aims to simplify the management by abstracting the actual commands from the goals of a task.
