ManageEngine Launches CI Manager Plus to Simplify UCS Monitoring for Large Enterprises
MELBOURNE, Australia & PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
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 center
administrators at large enterprises.
ManageEngine (News - Alert) 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 (News - Alert) 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
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 visualize the parent-child relationship of all the devices in
the system. This allows data center 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
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
color 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 centers 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 centers 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 center infrastructure management
software that supports monitoring of 50,000 devices or 1 million
interfaces from a single server. Data center admins seeking more
visibility into their data center can convert CI Manager Plus into
OpManager for network management, physical and virtual server
monitorig, 3D data center visualization, workflow automation and more.
