ManageEngine has announced immediate support for storage monitoring in IT360, its integrated IT management solution. The move continues the IT360 push into the DCIM arena with a unified dashboard and pre-integrated, out-of-the-box support for multi-vendor storage solutions.
Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is a hot topic thanks to the rise in private cloud computing fueling data center growth. The private cloud and data center activity, however, has yet to spark corresponding advances in DCIM software. Simply put, discrete DCIM point solutions can’t provide the unified, real-time views needed to optimize the management of data center infrastructures. Companies that do want a single management console must integrate point solutions after the fact, on their own or via professional services engagement. IT360 creates a single console -- out-of-the-box with no additional efforts -- to give DCIM teams a unified, real-time view of their entire IT infrastructure assets.
The latest version of IT360 supports multi-vendor storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) solutions for storage devices such as storage arrays, fabric switches, tape libraries, host servers, and host bus adapter cards. The complete list of supported vendors and devices can be found here.
IT360 can now perform auto-discovery of storage devices from multiple vendors based on SNMP, CLI, SNIA SMI-S, and vendor-specific algorithms. IT360 can discover storage devices such as RAIDs, tape libraries, tape drives, FC switches, host bus adapters, and host servers. The latest release of IT360 also allows customers to perform fault management activities by capturing sensor faults such as power supply, temperature, fan, battery, and status change notifications from IT360’s unified console.
ManageEngine has previously made DCIM inroads with IT360’s integrated, ITIL-ready service management module for asset management. That module’s CMDB maintains a centralized database of all IT assets inside and outside the data center, so organizations can have a central, single-console repository of their assets to make accurate decisions.
In addition, IT360 monitors all other network and application-based data center infrastructure including virtualized environment and cloud-based applications. The end-user monitoring module in IT360 has helped customers around the globe to monitor and enhance their user's application experience.
