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’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.

Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...
