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.

X1 Redefines Mobile Search For iPhone And iPad

X1 Technologies today announced a major update to X1 Mobile Search, featuring "Fast-as-you-Type" search of desktop-bound email and documents. With X1 Mobile Search, users can turn their iPhones and iPads into an extension of their PC or Mac, allowing them to leave their laptop behind. X1 will be demonstrating the new app at Pepcom's MobileFocus Event today in San Diego.

Traditional remote access tools allow users to view their desktops; however, these tools require the user to know exactly where the information exists. X1 Mobile Search, previously $19.99, is now available for free in the App Store and allows users to instantly find information without having to navigate through the folders on their desktop. In addition to working in conjunction with X1 Professional on the desktop, X1 Mobile Search now works natively with Windows and Mac.

"X1 Mobile Search allows access to your computer's files from anywhere, and will instantly find exactly what you're looking for," said Christopher Walton, vice president of products and strategy at X1. "With this release, we're making it easier for users to find and manipulate files, regardless of where they reside on the desktop, or what desktop solution they're using. Whether they use our X1 Professional Client, Windows Search or Mac Spotlight, X1 Mobile Search will now work for them. Additionally, our security features make it an ideal solution for busy professionals who need to quickly access and manage data, without having to take their laptops everywhere."

"X1's design eliminates the wasted time of clicking through search results, opening and closing one document after another," said Sue Feldman, vice president for search and discovery technologies at IDC. "Pulling together documents, attachments, and email in one easy-to-use interface cuts down on time spent looking so that workers can start doing."
