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 Should I Use In The New DeepStorage Lab?

January 11, 2010 06:35 PM
The powers that be have decreed that it's time to move the DeepStorage lab. While our data center is minuscule compared to one at Google, or even the average Fortune 500 company, the fact it's a testing lab means we're performing MACs (Moves, Adds and Changes) much more than a well-run user organization should. As we move into the new lab I'm looking to include all the gadgets and software tools I can afford to both simplify the process of reconfiguring the lab to test some amazing new storage thingamabob and enable as much remote work as possible.
