Olive Data Centre Becomes a Reseller for Device42

July 07, 2016

As our reliance on data centers continues to grow, operators are dealing with an increasingly complex environment that now requires software management solutions to make them as efficient as possible. This requires Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software with a wide range of capabilities to address the highly dynamic day-to-day operations of data centers. Device42, a global provider of DCIM software, is making his technology available by entering into a partnership with Olive Data Centre, so it can sell its product line to clients in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East region.

Olive Data Centre is one of the largest IT solutions providers in Asia with more than 25 years of experience in delivering IT infrastructure, data center design and operations, cyber security and IT managed services. With this partnership, the company will have access to Device42's DCIM software, which will be providing software and support services to its customers in Malaysia, the Philippines, the Middle East and India.

The DCIM from Device42 has been developed to simplify the way IT departments manage their data centers with visualization tools so they can access data center diagrams that accurately mirror the IT environment.

The user interface provides drag and drop capabilities of objects, so rack orientations can be easily changed and object details can be accessed by just hovering over them. This is made possible with detailed device information that documents physical, virtual, blade, clustered and more device types.

By recording server processing power and connection properties along with asset tags, serial numbers and support information, it is able to deliver a comprehensive view of the overall data center operations and IT infrastructure. Some of the complete device details it provides include CPU, memory HDD, IP & MAC address, hardware components, network switch and PDU port connectivity and more.

Another important feature in getting a complete view of a data center is to properly manage energy usage and temperature control. The Power & Thermal Management feature of the Device42 DCIM allows administrators to proactively manage thermal and power related problems with real-time and historical management capabilities that let them anticipate catastrophic problems so they can take the necessary actions to prevent them.

The Power & Thermal Management platform instantly monitors power from supported PDUs using SNMP while tracking the historical data of power consumption and thermal outputs. It also appraises the power configuration in a data center and estimates what servers might require for better capacity planning.

Olive Data Centre will have access to all these features, so its customers can better address the challenges and unexpected events that are always taking place in data centers.

"Olive is proud to partner with Device42. With this partnership, we look forward to serving international clients by providing application dependency mapping enabling customers to see all IT in one window and also providing single pane summary in data center management space," mentioned Mr. Pravin Mohite, CEO, Olive Data Centre Pvt. Ltd

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
