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.

Private Cloud Lessons You Can't Learn From Amazon, Google, Etc

March 12, 2012 09:58 AM
Very little of what the large public cloud providers do is actually applicable to a private cloud. The reason for this is twofold: scale and application.

Predictive Analytics Key To Unlocking Big Data's Value, Reducing Cloud Complexity

March 08, 2012 09:00 AM
While adoption of predictive analytics systems is still relatively modest, the promise they hold--giving companies a quick and logical way to make use of unstructured or big data to provide preemptive warning of failure, among other things--is prompting vendors to embed the functionality in their larger management consoles and application performance management systems.

Distribution Management Uses F5 To Solve Virtualization Challenges

February 09, 2012 01:00 PM
Wholesaler Distribution Management is using F5's new VDI support to take advantage of growing mobility and virtualization opportunities while addressing many of the accompanying challenges, including increased infrastructure costs and performance issues.

FireHost Flexes Its Cloud Scaling Options

FireHost is extending its scaling options, adding a scheduling capability to its cloud service offering. In addition to scaling on demand, the scheduled scaling feature lets customers that can predict demand manage capacity more effectively.

Scaling Backup Deduplication With Clustered Storage

October 30, 2009 10:58 AM
In my last entry I looked at scaling single system solutions, and in this entry I'll take a look at scaling backup deduplication via a storage cluster approach delivered by companies like Sepaton and Exagrid. The idea here is to make adding capacity and performance as simple as adding another node to the cluster. Each time you add a node, capacity and performance scales with it. This may be ideal for the enterprise and even for rapid growth mid-tier companies.

Data Deduplication Update 2 - Scalability

October 29, 2009 10:36 AM
As we continue our tour through the deduplication maze, one of the battle cries of data deduplication suppliers is how well their product scales. Scalability, however, is in the eye of the beholder. In the deduplication system space, this results in the classic battle of the single box storage system vs. a grid or clustered storage system. In the software space it raises questions.
