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.

4G? No, It’s More Like 4Gee!

March 26, 2012 09:00 AM
Have you actually held a 4G device in your hands while it does a speed test? Has your brain struggled to reconcile the numbers displayed at the end of the test with the fact that you’re connected to a mobile network and not Wi-Fi? Have you felt your reality get pleasantly rocked in a way that left you a bit confounded over the numbers that your device was showing you? This 4G stuff is simply amazing.

SmartPhones Versus Lesser Phones: The New Digital Divide?

July 06, 2010 10:00 AM
I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I just got my first smartphone. That's not to say that I haven't had my share of Palm and iPad hand-held computers and plain-Jane cell phones. At work, I have part-time custody of (and long history with) an iPhone that was just upgraded to iPhone 4. But on my own dime, my new Droid is my first personally-owned smartphone, and I'm a bit surprised at how powerful it really is after having it with me as a permanent accessory. In all fairness, the iPhone is also powerful, but I never felt good about schlepping the "work iPhone" very far from the office, and I'm not a fan of iTunes. Before I continue, let's be clear: what I'm about to say is in no way a Droid versus iPhone testimony. I'm talking about smartphones in general, from the perspective of someone who's just taken the leap after always keeping his cellphone charges low by staying with "free" phones and no data plan.

Smartphone Virtualization: Useful Or Useless?

January 04, 2010 01:00 PM
The virtualization industry has been on fire with news of VMware's latest experimental venture: Smartphone Virtualization. The technology has been targeted at the mobile professional who currently carries two phones, one for personal and one for business use. VMware touts that with a real hypervisor on board, our prototype telecommuter of tomorrow will be able to switch seamlessly between two different installed operating systems on the same phone. With Gigahertz processor cell phones on the market and storage into the 100GB mark, it seems reasonable to virtualize phone technology. Getting deeper into the logistics, however, it starts to sound like more trouble than it's worth.
