ManageEngine at Cisco Live: Showcases DCIM Software with 3D Graphics and High Performance Reporting
Features drag and drop rack builder, PDU templates for APC power distribution units, 3D graphic support for a virtual datacenter experience on the mobile devices in network monitoring software and high performance reporting engine in bandwidth analysis tool
LONDON and PLEASANTON, Calif. - January 28, 2013 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, is previewing its datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) offerings at Cisco Live London from January 28-February 1, 2013, in booth E115/E118. On show are recent enhancements to its real-time products OpManager and NetFlow Analyzer.
Presently, system management and datacenter infrastructure are managed in silos by varying, and often competing, solutions. To facilitate holistic datacenter management, ManageEngine's enhanced DCIM product portfolio provides datacenter managers with real-time visibility of their network assets, racks and environment devices to ensure business continuity and enhance productivity. The added functionality provides datacenter managers with the ability to also monitor the datacenter'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 visualization features that would provide datacenter managers with the same level of reassurance as physically walking up to each rack and checking it live. Instead of relying on old techniques such as datacenter documentation, datacenter managers can now model their racks and floors per the exact physical dimensions and then view the virtual datacenter from their iPad or mobile device for status as well as change management requirements. It is 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 at MangeEngine.
Anand concluded, "Despite their popularity and cost effectiveness, public clouds didn't really affect the growth of enterprise private clouds last year. In fact, some of our customers manage large enterprise datacenters that could cost 1 million USD in revenue loss for an hour of downtime. We expect this trend of private cloud adoption to continue in 2013-14, and we believe adding such DCIM visuaization features will help these die-hard datacenter managers - who can't lose sight of their datacenters - breathe easy."
ManageEngine Highlights at Cisco Live London
ManageEngine's flagship network monitoring software, OpManager, adds 3D datacenter view and rack builder to power its existing business view capability. The 3D datacenter view can be viewed on an iPad or any mobile device. Now the IT team can bring up a complete virtual datacenter, build the racks and visualize the racks along with the device status in each rack. This can help datacenter admins significantly in managing the datacenter 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 datacenter. These new features are available for preview at http://beta.opmanager.com.
NetFlow Analyzer's HighPerf Reporting Engine add-on enhances the raw data storage capabilities of NetFlow Analyzer and sharpens its analytical insights. Storing raw data for longer periods also enhances the accuracy of capacity planning reports and facilitates better resource planning and infrastructure investment decisions.

3D datacenter view, rack builder and energy device monitoring are immediately available in the beta release of OpManager. OpManager users can download the beta version via the OpManager beta program.
