You can manually enter information for thousands of assets over the course of weeks and months. Or, simply auto-discover it within an hour. RAMP DCIM’s powerful 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.
RAMP DCIM ensures any and every change is captured accurately to reduce the risk of downtime and outages. RAMP DCIM can recognize changes such as hardware configuration (memory added, for example), software (installed or removed), virtual machine movement, network cables moved to another location, and so on. Yes, you should run all of these changes through the change management system, but RAMP DCIM will catch those that aren’t logged and can also verify the accuracy of a change. If a network cable was to be moved from physical port E8 to port E12, for example, we can verify that the change was properly made. RAMP DCIM manages change for both physical and virtual devices.
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 RAMP DCIM, 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.
Never overspend on your IT needs again. Get immediate asset utilization metrics to better optimize your current capacity while making an informed decision on how to manage future requirements.
