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.

IDC: SSDs Reshaping Enterprise Storage

Many enterprises are using SSDs as a complementary technology to traditional enterprise hard disk drives. Enterprises are looking to SSD technology as a way to boost both performance and responsiveness, he says.

"In many cases, adding an SSD is done to increase performance and responsiveness. As a result, SSDs are being used to complement HDDs, and we are seeing enterprise HDD demand decline, but the introduction of SSDs is changing the mix toward more capacity-optimized drives versus performance-optimized drives [for example, 15K rpm)," Janukowicz says.

In contrast to the earlier days of the SSD market, SSD products are being embraced by all of the major storage and server OEMs, which is benefiting SSD vendors like STEC, Fusion-io, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, Intel and Samsung, he says.
