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.

Scale-up, Scale-Out Nexsan Blurs the Line

March 07, 2012 09:00 AM
In the beginning, or at least the 20th century, modular scale-up storage systems dominated the market for midrange storage. More recently, the vendors of scale-out systems for NAS and iSCSI have touted the way their systems add controller horsepower and cache as they add capacity. Nexsan's new NST line of unified storage systems combines attributes of both architectures, hoping to leverage the best of both worlds.

Clearing Up Cloud Confusion

April 09, 2010 03:30 PM
One of the complaints about cloud storage is that it is not very neatly defined. The reality is that I don't think it ever will be. There are too many use cases and let's face it, the term "cloud" is being used for everything, not only on the storage side but also on the compute side. As we discussed in our article "What is Cloud Storage" there are many sides to the term. Ideally, we should have reserved the term for providers of storage that you access through the public Internet, for which you pay by the capacity you are using on a monthly basis. I think that's what most people think of as "cloud." Unfortunately, we didn't declare what the term should mean from day one, and that lead to the confusion we have now.
