ManageEngine to Demonstrate Key Enhancements to DCIM Offerings at Gartner Data Center Conference, Las Vegas

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced that it will showcase the latest enhancements to its data center infrastructure management (DCIM) offerings along with the rest of its integrated IT management portfolio in booth #122 at the Gartner Data Center Conference being held in Las Vegas, NV, December 3-6, 2012. A silver sponsor of the event, ManageEngine will be demonstrating how its DCIM products help enterprise data centers gain holistic management and real-time visibility of their network assets while automating tasks and bolstering internal controls to stay secure, ensure business continuity and enhance productivity.

Data centers represent the nerve center of IT enterprises. With the presence of a complex mix of databases, network devices, and applications as well as physical, virtual and cloud-based systems, modern-day data centers present a unique challenge for IT operations. With cyber-crime looming large, data center operations are required to be not only robust and efficient, but also highly secure to ensure business continuity and data integrity.

“Monitoring the IT infrastructure in data centers for performance, reliability, security, capacity and utilization every single second is proving crucial now as downtime costs could exceed $1 million in fields like manufacturing,” said Raj Sabhlok, president of ManageEngine. “Data centers with enterprise-grade SLAs need real-time visibility and control over the happenings in the multi-vendor IT infrastructure, supported by workflow-driven advanced automation capabilities. Meanwhile, to combat internal and external cyber-threats, it has become absolutely essential to consolidate, secure, control and monitor privileged accounts that are all-pervasive in data centers. ManageEngine has engineered the enhancements to IT360, Password Manager Pro and DeviceExpert with these critical industry requirements in mind, offering a holistic solution that empowers administrators with real-time visibility, control and security.”

ManageEngine Highlights at Gartner Data Center Conference

Storage monitoring with IT360: The integrated IT management solution, IT360, now supports multi-vendor storage area networks (SANs) and network-attached storage (NAS) for storage devices like storage arrays, fabric switches, tape libraries, host servers and host bus adapter cards. With IT360, enterprises can also leverage the integrated ITIL-ready service management module in IT360 for asset management with ITIL’s best practices. The integrated CMDB maintains a centralized database of all assets, not only those within the data centers but also those in the internal IT teams. This way, IT360 enables organizations to maintain a centralized, single-console repository of the assets to make accurate decisions. IT360 already provides support to monitor all network and application-based data center infrastructure including virtualized environments and cloud-based applications.

Privileged session management in Password Manager Pro: Privileged sessions launched from Password Manager Pro can be completely video recorded, archived and played back to support forensic audits. By monitoring all actions performed by privileged accounts during privileged sessions, enterprises can gain complete visibility and counter threats to information security that arise from outside as well as inside the corporate firewall. Thus, in a single, unified solution, Password Manager Pro delivers both privileged identity management and session management. It helps enterprises consolidate all the privileged accounts and centrally control them in fully automated fashion, thereby putting an end to the convoluted manual password management practices. Password Manager Pro helps establish access controls across data centers, taking care of the access management requirements of DCIM.

Automated, fully consolidated network configuration and change management (NCCM) through DeviceExpert: DeviceExpert provides REST APIs, facilitating integration with an enterprise configuration management database (CMDB), which helps administrators leverage network monitoring, configuration management, and change control in complete alignment with the enterprise CMDB, keeping it up to date with respect to device configurations and resulting in better management of network assets. The change control feature in DeviceExpert helps administrators track configuration changes to network devices in real time and prevent unauthorized changes. Configurations can be checked for compliance to policies and industry best practices. The automation capabilities eliminate human errors and help when rolling out changes to multiple devices.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
