ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the launch of its new converged infrastructure (CI) management software, CI Manager Plus. Available immediately, CI Manager Plus simplifies the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) monitoring tasks of data center administrators at large enterprises.
ManageEngine will be demonstrating the new application’s features at Cisco Live, March 18-21, 2014, in Melbourne, Australia. At the show, ManageEngine will be in booth 27.
In a Cisco UCS environment, the real challenge is managing it. UCS Manager offers comprehensive UCS management, but it is not very user-friendly and has a very steep learning curve. It floods the admins with a lot of uncorrelated events. With CI Manager Plus, UCS management is easy and simple and eliminates the complexities involved with UCS Manager.
CI Manager Plus monitors Cisco UCS via UCS Manager XML APIs. It discovers the UCS and monitors all the devices in the system periodically. CI Manager Plus provides a 2D map of the UCS architecture to help visualize the parent-child relationship of all the devices in the system. This allows data center admins to drill down and identify the exact device that is causing the problem. CI Manager Plus also provides a 3D UCS builder that helps admins create exact replicas of their UCS infrastructures in 3D and embed them in the CI Manager Plus dashboard.
CI Manager Plus provides only the essential performance and fault data, thereby helping admins reduce the effort required to sift through the mountain of data generated by UCS Manager. CI Manager Plus also includes the best-in-class fault management module, which correlates all the related events raised by UCS Manager into meaningful alarms and uses color codes for differentiating the severity of the alarm. It also includes an email notification option to alert the admins immediately.
“Most large enterprises today want their data centers to be agile and energy efficient,” said Bharani Kumar, marketing manager for CI Manager Plus at ManageEngine. “Converged infrastructure devices such as UCS let them quickly expand their data centers and, at the same time, go green. This trend will continue to grow, and a lot of large enterprises will adopt such converged infrastructure devices.”
CI Manager Plus is built on OpManager, ManageEngine’s highly scalable, data center infrastructure management software that supports monitoring of 50,000 devices or 1 million interfaces from a single server. Data center admins seeking more visibility into their data center can convert CI Manager Plus into OpManager for network management, physical and virtual server monitoring, 3D data center visualization, workflow automation and more.
Pricing and Availability
CI Manager Plus is available for immediate download at http://www.manageengine.com/converged-infrastructure/download.html. Pricing starts at $995 USD for monitoring a single UCS. B-Series, C-Series and virtual server monitoring is priced at $1,995 USD for 50 devices.

So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
