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.

WAN Optimization Helps Networks 'Evolve'

April 13, 2012 09:00 AM
Networks are asked to do a lot these days--from moving video and voice to connecting mobile devices to delivering applications through a browser--but the basic architecture of a WAN hasn’t changed much over time, says analyst Zeus Kerravala. Enter WAN optimization, whose goal is to improve performance to deliver apps from the cloud that look as good and perform as if they were natively installed on the endpoint device.

Is Your Network Ready For Romley?

March 26, 2012 09:00 AM
Server manufacturers have been quick to roll out new models designed to run on Intel’s new Xeon E5 family of processors, a.k.a. Romley, which touts an 80% performance improvement over earlier Xeon versions. As surely as the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, a boost in server performance is going to demand a bigger network pipeline. Networking vendors and other industry experts think the introduction of Romley is going to be a significant catalyst for adoption of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity to replace 1 GbE switches running in networks today.
