Auto-Discovery. The only one that captures detailed data from the Facilities, IT and Virtual layers.
One of the issues that customers have with DCIM is the lengthy time and expense in setting up the software–particularly, capturing detailed data from thousands of assets.
Manually entered data typically has a 10-15% error rate associated with it. RAMP DCIM’s ability to auto-discover detailed data at the device level greatly reduces setup time, cost and data inaccuracy. Take a server, for example. RAMP DCIM captures the basics such as manufacturer, model, serial numbers, IP addresses and so on. The software then take it a step further by capturing the hardware configuration (processor, memory and disk drives) and can even map the connection from the server network card to the physical port on a switch or router. RAMP DCIM also captures the installed software, operating system and service packs, and all of the virtual machines running on the box. In the case of a blade server, RAMP DICM will also tell you the slot in which the blade is installed.
Auto-Change Management. 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.
Real-Time Monitoring. RAMP DCIM monitors from the device level up–from server CPU and disk drive, to rack PDU and UPS, to cooling devices and environmental sensors.
RAMP DCIM can monitor your IT and Facility infrastructures. The software monitors from the device level up, so it can monitor server CPU, disk drive usage and server sensors such as power, temperature and fan speed. It can monitor power at the device, rack PDU, PDU, UPS, transfer switch and generator levels and send alerts on abnormal conditions. It can monitor cooling devices such as chillers, CRAC, CRAH and in-row cooling. It can monitor environmental sensors, both wired and wireless. The monitored data is reviewed in RAMP DCIM’s data analytics engine and alarms can be triggered based on combinations of factors. This allows RAMP DCIM to detect potential failover issues before they occur. RAMP DCIM supports IPMI, iLO, iDRAC, SSH, SNMP (v1, v2, and v3), Modbus, BACnet, WMI, WBEM, and vCenter–without having to purchase additional modules or link with other products.
