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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
