ManageEngine Launches CI Manager Plus to Simplify UCS Monitoring for Large Enterprises

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 centre 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 visualise the parent-child relationship of all the devices in the system. This allows data centre 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 colour 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 centres 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 centres 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 centre infrastructure management software that supports monitoring of 50,000 devices or 1 million interfaces from a single server. Data centre admins seeking more visibility into their data centre can convert CI Manager Plus into OpManager for network management, physical and virtual server monitoring, 3D data centre visualisation, 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 ($1094.49 AUD) for monitoring a single UCS. B-Seriers, C-Series, & virtual server monitoring is priced at $1995($2194.48 AUD) for 50 devices.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
