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.

My Next Data Center: Power Conditioning

August 11, 2010 03:00 PM
It's been a long time since anyone at Network Computing, or anyone among our erstwhile competitors, has talked seriously about KVM switches, power distribution, cable management or any of the other little things that keep a data center running smoothly. Since we just moved DeepStorage labs into a new data center, I figured I'd share what I learned in the process and describe what I'd do the next time I get to build a small-to-medium size data center from scratch. I'll start with power conditioning.
