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.

Where Do Hypervisors Go From Here?

April 05, 2012 09:00 AM
The history of the personal computer is a series of wars--operating system wars, network OS wars, browser wars and then virtualization wars. But while virtualization at first followed the lead of the OS in battles between hypervisors, such as VMWare’s vSphere and Microsoft’s Hyper-V, virtualization is increasingly following the leads of the other pieces of infrastructure before it and is enabling user organizations to set up heterogeneous virtualization networks by supporting multiple hypervisors.
