CORE FEATURES

Auto-Discovery

You can manually enter information for thousands of assets over the course of weeks and months. Or, simply auto-discover it within an hour. Our powerful, agentless auto-discovery tool eliminates the need for error-prone data entry. Instead, it delivers fast and razor accurate details right down to the device level. Auto-discover a server in your data center? Expect more than just the manufacturer, model, serial numbers, and IP addresses. You will also get the configuration (processor, memory and disk drives), mapped connection from the server network card to the physical port on a switch or router, the installed software, operating system, service packs, and any running virtual machines. Find out why auto-discovery is essential.

IT Asset Monitoring

Monitor from the device level up. From server CPU and disk drive, to rack PDU and UPS, to cooling devices and environmental sensors. You can monitor power at the device, rack PDU, PDU, UPS, transfer switch and generator levels, and send alerts on abnormal conditions. Also, monitor cooling devices like chillers, CRAC, CRAH and in-row cooling. Our software continuously analyzes the data and triggers alerts based on the health of your devices. This allows you to detect potential failover issues before they occur. The software supports IPMI, iLO, iDRAC, SSH, SNMP (v1, v2, and v3), Modbus, BACnet, WMI, WBEM, and vCenter.

Auto-Change Management

Ensure any and every change is captured accurately to reduce the risk of downtime and outages. Our hybrid IT management software automatically recognizes changes to hardware configurations (memory added), software installation or removal, or virtual machines moved around. If a network cable is moved from physical port E8 to port E12, our software verifies that the change was properly made. All changes are accurately logged and timestamped, making it easy to to do root cause analysis.

Cloud Monitoring

The only infrastructure management software that allows you to monitor your public cloud instances in AWS and Google Cloud, along with your on-prem IT assets and workloads. This powerful feature eliminates the need to rely on using several software tools or platforms to track important information like which internal user owns a cloud instance or which instances are zombies.  Enjoy a single-pane-of-glass with rich data on your bare metal servers, virtual machines and public cloud instances. Our software offers a complete picture for both the C-suite and data center managers to understand where to uncover efficiencies in energy and compute.

Software & OS Monitoring

Unused, lost or forgotten software assets are costing your organization money and placing you at risk of license violations. In fact, organizations in the United States spend $12.4 billion annually* on software that’s never utilized. With our hybrid IT management software, you will never waste another penny on unused software. Track and monitor software/operating system (OS) licenses running on your devices and VMs. Know what versions need updating or which licenses are no longer needed. Managing software costs and maintaining compliance has never been easier.

Zombie Servers Finder

Uncover zombie servers that are quietly draining power and taking up space. Advance Search makes it fast and easy for you to find the insight you need to reduce your data center costs. With Logical Groups, you can go further and calculate the cost of networking services, storage services, and the like. You can also quickly evaluate ‘what-if’ scenarios. If you are planning to do maintenance on a UPS, for example, you can learn which devices will be impacted during that maintenance period and plan accordingly. Similarly, you can review impact tables on network devices.

Reserve Assets

Use Reserved Assets to visualize adding new IT assets or plan moves of existing ones. Map the physical location and space the asset will take within a rack, and review its impact on power. You can also allocate network connections, power path and custom properties. Once you are satisfied, leave the Reserved Asset in place to be auto-discovered and merged into the live asset along with all of its connections and properties.
