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.

Your Storage Questions Answered Live On Thursday

Storage is a mission-critical component in any IT infrastructure. The success of your storage system can make (or break) the success of your entire application delivery system.

E2 Radio will host a special episode with guest Howard Marks, founder and chief scientist at DeepStorage and one of our most prolific Network Computing contributors. Join us at 2:00 p.m. EST (11:00 a.m. PST) on Thursday, January 30, when we'll talk about solid state storage and the realistic difference it can make for your enterprise and how to get the most from this higher-priced option.

Howard Marks provides the kind of practical, hands-on analysis that can only come from spending 30 years in the trenches. As a consultant he helped organizations large and small, including America Express, JP Morgan, Borden Foods, BBDO Worldwide, and Foxwoods Resort Casino solve real-world storage and network problems. Now at DeepStorage he runs an independent test lab evaluating the latest in storage and data center networking products. Radio show host extraordinaire Curtis Franklin will be handling the microphone, so it's sure to be a great show.

Register and join us at E2 at 2:00 p.m. EST (11:00 a.m. PST) on Thursday, January 30, for an in-depth interview and live online discussion that looks at solid state storage in your enterprise.

And don't miss Howard's storage workshop at Interop Las Vegas. Interop attendees consistently rate Howard as a top speaker both for his expertise and engaging instruction style.
