RaMP can manage from the virtual or physical server all the way up through the power and cooling infrastructure, providing you with a truly holistic solution across the entire data center.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
No Limits Software announces the release of version 2.3 of their RaMP DCIM solution with universal trap management, LANdesk integration, automated report generation, integration with VMware vCenter Server, enhance power chain view, new event history views and reports, and support for hundreds of new IT and infrastructure devices.
RaMP is the only Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution which allows data center professionals to manage their data center from the virtual and physical server all the up through the power and cooling infrastructure. RaMP auto-discovers the devices in the data center to automate the configuration, greatly reducing the time to set up the solution while simultaneously eliminating the typical 10-15% inaccuracy found in manually entered data.
The new RAMP v2.3 features include:
Universal SNMP trap management
RaMP 2.3 can receive SNMP traps from any IT or facilities devices in the data center. Unlike many DCIM solutions which can only process traps from their own hardware devices, RaMP supports traps from any device. RaMP’s trap editor provides the ability to modify the criticality of any event and to customize the event text. This allows data center managers to include specific instructions for actions to be taken when the event occurs. The event text can incorporate any of the variables passed with the SNMP trap.
RaMP 2.3 is the only DCIM solution which provides the automatic clearing of SNMP alarms which are no longer active. While all alarms will be logged through RaMP, the automatic clearing of alarms allows the data center manager to focus on active alarms rather than sorting through a lengthy list of alarms and trying to determine which ones are still applicable.
RaMP 2.3 can add or clear a ticket in LANdesk based on polled data, calculated data (such as total rack power) or the receipt of an SNMP trap. But RaMP doesn’t stop with LANdesk integration. An unlimited number of alert types and formats can be defined to allow RaMP to integrate with a number of change management and trouble ticketing systems.
Automated Report Generation
RaMP 2.3 can schedule any report, including user-defined reports, to be automatically run and distributed to a list of recipients. After setting report schedules for recurring reports, these reports will be emailed to the recipients without them ever having to log into the RaMP system.
Integration with VMware vCenter Server
RaMP 2.3 provides enhanced support management of vSphere environments through integration with the VMware vCenter Server. RaMP can manage the virtual or physical server all the way up through the power and cooling infrastructure, providing a truly holistic solution across the entire data center.
Enhanced View of Power Chain
RaMP 2.3 provides an enhanced view of the power chain for any device to clearly show what devices would be impacted in the event of a system or power failure.
New Event History Views and Reports
RaMP 2.3 now provides an enhanced view and reporting for the history of events in the data center. Simply choose a location, date range and the event criticalities and RaMP will do the rest. Click a button to create a report or schedule the report to be created and distributed automatically.
Support for Hundreds of New IT and Infrastructure Devices
RaMP 2.3 provides support for hundreds of new IT and infrastructure devices.
