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.

A Network Computing Webinar:
SDN First Steps

Thursday, August 8, 2013
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will help attendees understand the overall concept of SDN and its benefits, describe the different conceptual approaches to SDN, and examine the various technologies, both proprietary and open source, that are emerging. It will also help users decide whether SDN makes sense in their environment, and outline the first steps IT can take for testing SDN technologies.

In the Cloud, Distance Matters for Compute Efficiency

March 28, 2013 03:32 PM
Researchers from UC San Diego and Google found cloud-based applications will run as much as 20% more efficiently when data is located close by.

Calling It: NUMA Will Be The Shizzle In Two Years

May 04, 2010 09:00 AM
No matter how much hardware and software we throw at data center computing, there is the hard fact that we are limited to using only the resources on a single piece of server hardware. Oh, we can virtualize the PCI bus and share peripherals among multiple servers with virtual IO, and that has use cases. Non-Uniform Memory Architecture (NUMA) is used in high-performance computing to aggregate fundamental computer resources like CPU, RAM and IO across a high speed bus. NUMA has the capability of virtualizing the hardware itself and it's going to be the hot thing within two years.

HP's Superdome 2: Bigger, Badder Computing

April 28, 2010 08:00 AM
In the realm of high-performance computing, more is better. HP has announced an upgrade to it's Cache Coherent Non-Uniform Memory Access (ccNUMA) computing platform, Superdome, named Superdome 2. Superdome 2 provides flexible scalability and fault tolerance necessary for high-performance computing. While NUMA-based systems like Superdome and Superdome 2 have been relegated to relatively niche markets focused on high-performance computing and high-speed transactions, as IT moves towards virtualization, your data center will start to resemble an HPC cluster rather than a rack of servers.

Harnessing vSphere Performance Benefits for NUMA

December 05, 2009 07:31 PM
Non Uniform Memory Access or NUMA is becoming increasingly commonplace on the next generation of very powerful servers. What does this mean for virtualization applications on the latest VMware incarnation? Serious performance increases for NUMA equipped systems.
