No Limits Software releases new white paper on IT Asset Managment

Share Article

Comprehensive management of IT equipment at the rack level must consider space, power and cooling. The optimum solution would provide the following functionality: • Quickly and accurately collect IT asset information • Maintain 100% accuracy of the data • Inexpensive and accurate means of auditing the data • Automatically track all authorized and detected system changes • Ability to quickly view system changes to recommend problem resolution • Monitor rack environmental conditions to reduce shutdown risk • Monitor both facilities and IT equipment at either the device or rack level • Monitor server data such as CPU, I/O, network and power management • Use RFID for asset tracking at the room level and other technology designed to track the asset to the rack unit

Organizations can typically expect a 10% error rate in manual data entry due to typing and transcribing errors.

There are a number of asset management software solutions on the market today. These solutions are intended to address management of the IT assets in the data center, with the primary focus on data center planning. Their purpose is to answer questions such as:

  • How much capacity do I have remaining in my data center?
  • Where is a particular server located?
  • What is the configuration of a particular server?
  • What equipment is installed in a particular rack?

One of the biggest drawbacks to the asset management systems on the market today is that they require manual entry of the asset information, an expensive, time-consuming process that is rife with errors. This new white paper from No Limits Software addresses the state of the systems and related technology currently being used to address rack level management and provides criteria to use in the search for an optimal solution.
