Device42 adds new features for managing network software in release 7 of its DCIM software; a new report shows $30 billion worth of idle servers are in data centers, thanks in part to lack of capable asset management tools; Cormant adds the ability to manage multifiber push-on connectors into its DCIM offering; and research from DCD Intelligence census says that things are finally starting to change for DCIM and those planning to deploy it.
- Device42 adds capabilities in version 7 release of software. DCIM vendor Device42 announced new capabilities for managing physical and virtual instances of network software installed on enterprise IT infrastructure. The new version 7 release of its software enables organizations to identify, manage, and support a comprehensive, accurate profile of the software deployed throughout their network.
- New report says $30 billion worth of idle servers sit in data centers. Anthesis Group released a report announced the results of a report that was conducted with Jonathan Koomey, Research Fellow at Stanford, using data from TSO Logic. Findings from the report showed that there are about 10 million comatose servers worldwide, which translates into at least $30 billion in data center capital sitting idle.
- Cormant-CS DCIM solves MPO management headaches. DCIM vendor Cormant announced that its DCIM software now provides extensive documentation support for managing complex MPO (Multifiber Push-On) connectors, including MPO hydra cables. This new feature is offered at no extra charge, and allows operations staff to quickly designate an array of sub-channels in high density fiber environments.
- DCIM begins to blossom. Research from the DCD Intelligence Census reveals that things are changing for DCIM and the gap between the number of companies thinking about it and the number going on to deploy it.
