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.

LabTech Software Unveils New Features, Tools In Release Of LabTech 2011 Remote Monitoring And Management Software

LabTech Software, a powerful and robust Remote Monitoring, Management (RMM) and Automation solution for managed services, today announced the release of LabTech 2011, with new features and enhancements highlighting LabTech's commitment to the channel. The company's continuing and rapid development of new features that resonate with current and future partners have put LabTech even further ahead of competitors in speed and capabilities. Learn more about LabTech's next waves of innovation in the LabTech 2011 Roadmap.

LabTech's arsenal of IT management tools seamlessly support and resolve end-user computing and networking environments with remote desktop, monitoring, trouble ticket tracking, user information, support and software management. An agent-based solution, LabTech enables both on-call support and proactive Managed Service Providers with one central interface that manages an entire technology infrastructure. The latest edition of LabTech adds powerful features and enhancements such as:

SNMP Discovery, Detection, and Collection
Now data from any SNMP enabled device can be collected and monitored with LabTech. A newly designed probe scans the network to discover any devices on multiple subnets using SNMP and detects the type of device based on customizable detection templates. After determining the device type, the probe sets up collection properties to gather specific SNMP data about that device. These new abilities allow for the setup of monitors on collected data such as low ink levels, paper jams, low disk space on NAS drives, unusually high bandwidth detected on individual ports of routers, and other issues.

Custom Alerts
New alert templates enable you to have different actions performed based on the time of day and type of client. Based upon the designation of your clients, you can have an auto-fix script action set to run on your higher designated clients' machines to remedy the issue immediately, versus raising an alert or generating a ticket. Plus, you can set up after hours NOC support alerts that can be sent to a remote NOC team or a designated after hours technician.

Heads-Up Displays
Administrators can now create their own dynamic, functional HUD displays and set permissions to non-administrators to view, edit, or modify the HUD. This allows for your technicians to have relevant data at their fingertips from one screen where they can take action.
