In most data centers, DCIM rests on shaky ground: manual record keeping and scattered documentation. Data center managers maintain–and wade through–wikis, spreadsheets, text files, and un-integrated freeware tools and databases just to find two things: What is that we manage? and Where is it located? The biggest problem with all this documentation is that it is maintained manually, and who has time to do it perfectly? Moreover, locating an asset quickly is almost next to impossible, and because sources are scattered and ad hoc, the documentation often fails to capture how assets relate to each other.
OpManager helps you bridge this gap between the documentation you have and the documentation you ne…

Manual processes to managing device configurations often create gaping security holes!
Today’s enterprises face unprecedented cyber-security threats. New breed of cyber-attacks are constantly evolving even as enterprises continue to bolster their defenses. Though cyber-attacks happen through myriad ways, attackers always look for easy holes in network devices like switches, routers, firewalls and other devices on the perimeter to gain illegal access to the network. Due to lack of processes, unknowingly, we tend to simplify the job of intruders.
We have a contest running – ‘Doodle Your Data Center’. The contest is very simple and just takes a minute. All you have to do is design a data center using OpManager’s 3D Data Center Builder (beta) and tweet it with the hash tag #DataCenterDoodle. The best 3D data center design wins an iPad mini.
OpManager’s 3D Data Center Builder
ManageEngine previewed OpManager’s 3D Data Center Builder (beta) in Cisco Live 2013, London. With the 3D Data Center Builder you can create an exact replica of your data center in 3D. First you have to create racks by populating the devices, and then add the racks to the data center floors.
You can embed the 3D data center view in OpManager dash…
In IT infrastructure management, integration of tools/software with one another has always been a crucial requirement. In Network Change and Configuration Management (NCCM), which predominantly deals with change control, such integration becomes all the more essential as network configuration data lies at the core of enterprise network administration. However, due to the inherent incompatibility issues among tools, the integration goal is fraught with too many roadblocks. DeviceExpert now breaks all the barriers in integration efforts through its REST APIs. Any third-party application or software can integrate with DeviceExpert directly and add, access and extract dat…

Years ago, Scott Rich, now VP of IT for Avantguard Monitoring Centers, a wholesale alarm monitoring central station, started a company of his own.

Look who is chasing malware now. It’s the FBI of the United States. After busting all the bad guys in the world (sometimes even inside countries considered friendly to them) they are now on to a new hunt – the deadliest DNSChanger Trojan malware.
