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.

Data Classification Tips And Technologies

March 29, 2012 09:00 AM
As data continues to grow in terabytes in the enterprise, classifying it based on its sensitivity has never been more important. According to a just-released InformationWeek report, 10 Steps to Effective Data Classification, an organizational classification program defines policy requirements; specific classifications, generally as “secret,” “private,” “confidential” and “public,” and their associated data types; processes and procedures; accountability metrics; and repercussions from not following the rules, according to author Erik Bataller, a senior consultant with information security consultancy Neohapsis.

New Importance In Metadata Collection

December 07, 2009 04:34 PM
Metadata has been around for a long time but is garnering new attention in the eDiscovery world. Metadata contains information about the creation and editing of electronic documents. E-mail, word processing documents, spreadsheets, database records - all of these and more will have some level of metadata attached to it. Basic metadata includes information on the document's creator and modifiers and the date and times that it was created and acted upon. Metadata matters in eDiscovery because it goes to prove pesky details like the actual dating of an email message as opposed to a modified hard copy, or the fact that a government-produced Word document was reviewed by a lobbyist firm. Interesting, and information that could be crucial to litigation.
