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.

SSDs: A Guide To Using Flash In The Datacenter

February 13, 2014 12:21 PM
With the price of SSDs rapidly declining, it's tempting to put them in every new server or storage system. Not so fast.

Cloud Data Centers: Power Savings or Power Drain?

February 07, 2014 12:21 PM
A new model introduced by Berkeley Labs recommends moving data center applications to the cloud to save energy, but is that necessary?

Will 2014 Be The Year Of 10 Gigabit Ethernet?

January 22, 2014 02:19 PM
Adoption of 10GbE has been slow, but it's finally on its way to becoming mainstream in the datacenter. Will this be the year it surpasses 1GbE?

Solid-State Storage: On The Road To Datacenter Domination

January 14, 2014 06:59 PM
SSDs are displacing hard drives at a rapid clip in the datacenter, as enterprises and cloud providers find them an increasingly attractive low-power, faster storage option.

IBM Serves Up New Datacenter Architecture

April 11, 2012 09:00 AM
IBM has introduced what it considers a new category of servers, a family of “expert integrated systems” called PureSystems. The company says PureSystems go beyond the various converged infrastructure or unified system approaches of its peers by adding a new middleware layer that aims to automate both infrastructure and applications, offering workflows from IBM itself, from its third-party partners, and offering IT the ability to define its own workflows.

dinCloud: Making a Big Impact in the Cloud

February 06, 2012 09:00 AM
Have you reached the saturation point yet on the cloud? The endless cacophony of cloud messages seems to have transformed into white noise, where trying to distinguish and differentiate among competitive cloud offerings can leave one in either a state of decision-making paralysis or trusting that familiar vendors know what they're talking about without, perhaps, the full measure of due diligence that is appropriate. Enter dinCloud, which plans to break through the droning blather and show how its approach to cloud is different.

Altor Strengthens Juniper's Virtualization Security

December 07, 2010 02:21 PM
Juniper Networks' decision to increase its stake in virtualization security specialist Altor Networks to 100 percent was a fairly obvious move, says analyst Zeus Kerravala of the Yankee Group. "Juniper has been trying to strengthen their enterprise portfolio, trying to become a more relevant vendor. This seems to fit in where Juniper is already strong and gives them a stronger presence," Kerravala says.

Iron Mountain's Underground -- Past, Present, and Future

November 09, 2010 09:37 AM
If your enterprise (either private or public) really needs to make sure that physical documents, objects and electronic information are safely preserved and protected economically for as long as you wanted (even thousands of years), where would you put it? You may know of a better place, but my choice would be the Underground, Iron Mountain's facility in western Pennsylvania.

Metrics Pose Green IT Challenge

November 05, 2010 11:44 AM
Green IT is all about reducing wasted energy, wasted space and wasted materials. The difficulty is in establishing a measurement and reporting format that accurately and fairly represents data center efficiency which can be easily compared to other data centers.

Force10 Announces 40Gb Switch And Line Card

November 02, 2010 10:00 AM
Force10's recent announcement that it can provide 40Gbps from edge to core is further proof that 40Gb Ethernet in the data center is right around the corner. 40Gb Ethernet, designed for uplinks, reduces the number of 10Gb links that are aggregated and ensures that 48-port 1Gb switches won't be oversubscribed. While 40Gb isn't exactly ground breaking news, Force10 takes a different approach to the technology.
