Data Center Physical Realities in a Software-Defined And Virtualized World

As our businesses become increasingly digital, we tend to think about technology in non-physical terms. Our IT infrastructure becomes “the cloud.” Our servers and storage become “virtual.” Our networks become “software-defined.” The reality, however, is that information technology (IT) always depends on physical infrastructure. This white paper addresses five key aspects of IT that are inextricably tied to computing’s physical realities, even as that computing becomes more virtualized, software-defined, and cloud-based.

DCIM Software and IT Service Management — Perfect Together

Information Technology is so fundamental to every business today that every organization needs to establish formal processes to ensure that IT services are continually aligned to the business, and deliver efficient and reliable support over the entire lifecycle of products and services. These processes, commonly classified as IT Service Management (ITSM), may follow a well-known model such as ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) or, more likely, a set of internally-developed best practices.

Deploying High Power to IT Equipment Racks
With average rack power consumption still increasing, the deployment of high power to racks is becoming more of a necessity for data center managers. Well aware of this trend, Raritan has remained a high power industry thought leader and solutions provider. Download our white paper, Deploying High Power to IT Equipment Racks, to learn about high power best practices, trends, common configurations, future industry speculation and more.
Open RMSP - You Control Your Management Solution
Raritan is committed to providing real value in open standards-based IT management. To support that commitment, we created this paper to increase understanding about DASH and the OpenRMSP project.
Server Room Solutions: How small to midsize IT businesses can make their budgets appear larger
Managers of small and midsize IT departments must deliver uninterrupted service 24/7. Undersized budgets, bare bones staff, increasingly complex infrastructures and miniature workspaces are all part of the equation they’re expected to solve. But there’s a danger in this juggling act, and even the most skillful managers are vulnerable.
Best Practices When Enabling Smart Card Authentication in a KVM System
While many organizations have employed smart card identification to enhance their physical security infrastructure, data centers in particular can benefit greatly from the two-factor authentication that a smart card inherently provides to the logical realm. When seeking a smart card-enabled KVM system, choose not only a solution that fulfills the basic requirement of supporting PKI authentication to multiple servers from a single location, but also one that makes the necessary KVM feature adjustments to enable seamless use of the reader. Finally, it should adhere to industry standards to ensure that security thresholds are met.
Understanding Remote Server Management in Small and Midsize Server Rooms and Data Centers
In November 2005, Computerworld surveyed its small business subscribers on IT infrastructure and server management issues. The goal of the survey was to better understand the challenges of remote server management in smaller organizations. The survey was commissioned by Raritan, with data gathered and tabulated independently by Computerworld Research. This white paper presents the top-line results of the survey.
A New Dimension in IT Infrastructure Management: Integrated KVM and Serial Console System
As large, multiplatform, heterogeneous IT infrastructures proliferate, data centers have become ever more complex. Advances in remote management hardware and software now aggregate access to KVM, serial, and power control devices under a single platform, providing logical and physical views of IT assets. Browser-based access allows administrators to work from any Internet-connected PC. This white paper describes how today's KVM and serial console control tools can help companies meet the IT management challenge.
Virtualization and Data Center Management
Virtualization presents a tremendous opportunity for IT organizations. Yet deployment involves major process and management complexities. Our new white paper outlines best-practice methodologies that help you tackle challenges brought on by virtualization. We also suggest key questions to ask when evaluating a consolidated management solution.
ESP Is Not Free: Look to KVM over IP for Efficient Data Center Control
Embedded service processors free? Not so fast. To use the features you really need, you typically pay additional licensing costs. Plus, KVM over IP features lower TCO, multivendor support, enhanced security and flexible user management, among other cost savings.
