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.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network.
