The data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools of today are not just green initiatives like DCIM of yore. DCIM today includes not just energy management, but also physical infrastructure management, facilities management and systems management wrapped into a single, integrated product. ManageEngine, a division of Zoho (News - Alert) Corporation, has addressed the need for holistic DCIM with its IT360 solution. IT360 combines virtual and physical server and network monitoring, end user experience and application performance management, CMDB 7 IT asset management, and now multivendor storage area network (SAN) and network-attached-storage (NAS) management.
Napatech (News - Alert), a vendor of intelligent adapters for network monitoring and analysis, reached a significant milestone in its testing of a Dell (News - Alert) PowerEdge R720 rack server, hitting 100 Gbps throughput. In other words, this makes the PowerEdge R720 an excellent choice for OEM vendors with network appliances that need to analyze up to 10 ports at speeds of 10 Gbps.
Since Napatech is an OEM provider, it is important that its products can operate efficiently. As such, the company commonly tests intelligent adapters in the latest available servers in order to rule out any issues related to compatibility or performance. It was because of these testing practices that Napatech was able to hit such a high throughput with Dell's PowerEdge servers.
