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.

VMware NSX: Game Changer for Data Center Networks

August 26, 2013 01:38 PM
VMware's network virtualization product, NSX, may upend data center networks the same way the hypervisor changed servers.

Will NFV Kill Hardware Load Balancers?

August 22, 2013 11:10 AM
As load balancing and other network functions get delivered via virtual appliances, does the hardware ADC have a future?

SDN: 5 Things CIOs Must Know

December 03, 2012 01:24 PM
Software-defined networking promises to pull today’s network into the virtual age, but CIOs have to separate speculation from reality. Here are five observations to help guide IT leaders’ thinking.

For Storage News, Go to VMworld

September 04, 2012 02:56 PM
VMware's focus has shifted from virtualizing servers to virtualizing whole data centers--and storage vendors are happy to jump on for the ride.

Proximal Unveils First SSD Cache for VMware's vSphere

July 25, 2012 01:30 PM
To date, server-side SSD caching products include drivers for Windows or Linux. Proximal now supports the hypervisor directly, allowing features like vMotion and Live Migration to work as intended.

Microsoft, Citrix And KVM Continue To Erode VMware's Virtualization Domination

March 01, 2012 11:04 AM
As virtualization continues its proliferation throughout the enterprise, Microsoft, Citrix and KVM are all expected to be strong contenders to erode VMware's market share, say industry observers.

The Inevitability of Private Cloud

February 15, 2012 09:46 AM
Private cloud may be inevitable, but diving into cloud without a plan is a terrible idea. And even with a technology plan, there are also two massive cultural problems to overcome: the buy-big syndrome and the belief that servers are not software.

Riverbed Virtualizes Cascade

January 31, 2012 09:00 AM
As use of IT grows in enterprises, so, too, do demands on networks to deliver more capacity and speed and to be able to prioritize traffic. Video gets priority over a simple email, but a VoIP call gets priority over video if the video in question is something frivolous on YouTube. The need to manage the growth and increasing complexity of networks is driving demand for network performance management technology that can monitor traffic, identify possible bottlenecks and intervene to clear bottlenecks up.

HP To Acquire ArcSight

September 13, 2010 09:57 AM
HP and ArcSight Inc. today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for HP to acquire ArcSight, a leading security and compliance management company, for $43.50 per share, or an enterprise value of $1.5 billion.

The Inhibitors To I/O Virtualization

August 12, 2010 02:00 PM
In my entry "I/O Virtualization: When, Not If," I discussed some of the merits of I/O Virtualization (IOV) and the value in offloading I/O responsibilities from the hypervisor with SR-IOV (single route IOV). While SR-IOV and IOV may seem like great strategies, there are some inhibitors that need to be overcome. The first is OS or hypervisor support, and the second is dealing with the disruptions to the network and storage infrastructure when first implemented.
