LAS VEGAS and PLEASANTON, Calif. - April 22, 2015 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the latest version of RackBuilder Plus, its easy-to-use, 3D data center visual modeling software. Available immediately as a beta release, the new RackBuilder Plus includes options to add aisles, walk paths and walls when designing a data center floor. The new options let data center admins create a much more realistic view of their data center floors to see the exact locations of the hot and cold aisles, walk paths and racks.

ManageEngine is demonstrating the beta version of the new RackBuilder Plus in booth 211 at Data Center World, being held April 19-23, 2015, at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

"Most data center documentation tools cannot mimic reality. Their models are labor intensive to create and maintain," said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. "For quick and easy management of data centers, admins need tools that can build actual representations of their data center floors for proper visualization and management. To help admins create those realistic views, RackBuilder Plus now gives them options to add aisles, paths and walls."

RackBuilder Plus provides a floor builder that helps data center admins to not only drag and drop racks but also drag and drop aisles, walls and paths. Admins can create a layout on the floor builder with all the aisles, walls and paths and then add the racks. They can create exact views of how their data center looks and visualize it in 3D.

RackBuilder Plus is built on OpManager, ManageEngine's highly scalable, data center infrastructure management software that can monitor 50,000 devices or 1 million interfaces from a single server. Data center admins seeking more visibility and management into their data centers can convert RackBuilder Plus into OpManager for network management, physical and virtual server monitoring, fault management, workflow automation, asset management and more.

Pricing and Availability

The newly added RackBuilder Plus options are available in the beta version and can be downloaded from RackBuilder Plus pricing starts at $199 for a rack.
