ManageEngine at Cisco Live: Showcases DCIM Software with 3D Graphics & High Performance Reporting

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, is previewing its data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) offerings at Cisco Live London from Jan 28 – Feb 1 2013, in booth E115/E118. On show are recent enhancements to its real-time products OpManager and NetFlow Analyzer.

Presently, system performance and data centre infrastructure are managed in silos by varying, and often competing, solutions. To facilitate holistic data centre facility management, ManageEngine’s enhanced DCIM product portfolio provides data centre managers with real-time visibility of their network assets, racks and environment devices to ensure business continuity and enhance productivity. The added functionality provides data centre managers with the ability to also monitor the data centre’s energy consumption, performance impact of external environmental conditions and overall facility management logistics in one integrated dashboard.

“You can't manage what you can't see. This is why we added DCIM visualisation features that would provide data centre managers with the same level of re-assurance as physically walking up to each rack and checking it live. Instead of relying on old techniques, such as data centre documentation, data centre managers can now model their racks and floors as per the exact physical dimensions and then view the virtual data centre from their iPad or mobile device for status as well as change management requirements. It’s much easier to see a free space in a rack visually in 3D than scanning through pages of documentation,” said Dev Anand, director of product management, MangeEngine.

Dev Anand concluded; “Despite their popularity and cost effectiveness, public clouds haven't really affected the growth of enterprise private clouds last year. In fact some of our customers manage large enterprise data centres that could cost 1 million USD in revenue loss for an hour of downtime. We expect private cloud adoption to continue to grow in 2013-14 and we believe adding such DCIM visualisation features would help these die-hard data centre managers, who can't leave sight of their data centres, breathe easy.”

ManageEngine Highlights at Cisco Live London

Preview of 3D data centre view, rack builder, out-of-the-box monitoring for leading PDU devices in OpManager:

The flagship and the network monitoring software of ManageEngine, OpManager adds 3D data centre view and rack builder to power its existing business view capability. The 3D data centre view can be viewed from iPad or any mobile device. Now the IT team can bring up a complete virtual data centre, build the racks and visualise the racks along with the device status in each rack. This would help Data Centre admins significantly in managing the data centre capacity.

The support for APC and Emerson Liebert UPS has been extended to a new bunch of environment devices and PDUs monitoring with the exclusive dashboard to pinpoint any environment or energy issue in the data centre. All these new features are available for a preview at http://beta.opmanager.com.

NetFlow Analyzer

NetFlow Analyzer’s HighPerf Reporting Engine add-on enhances the raw data storage capabilities of NetFlow Analyzer that sharpens its analytical insights. Storing raw data for longer periods also enhances the accuracy Capacity Planning reports and facilitates better resource planning and infrastructure investment decisions.
