Many network professionals have shared that the main reason they are reluctant to diagram racks and data centers is by the time they finish creating the diagram, the configuration has already changed leaving the diagram outdated. NetZoomDC solves this issue by creating data-driven diagrams and documentation on demand so they are always up-to-date. It is a real time saver

"Many network professionals have shared that the main reason they are reluctant to diagram racks and data centers is by the time they finish creating the diagram, the configuration has already changed leaving the diagram outdated. NetZoomDC solves this issue by creating data-driven diagrams and documentation on demand so they are always up-to-date. It is a real time saver," said Nick Albano, Manager of Support.
NetZoomDC features include:
- A centralized database for managing data center infrastructure hierarchy and device connectivity
- Importing data center assets from Microsoft Excel® worksheets or Microsoft Office Visio diagrams
- Dozens of user-customizable reports
- Data-driven diagrams created on demand for visualizing the data center
- A Configurator feature for creating standardized custom-built chassis
"Since NetZoomDC is based on Microsoft Office technology, adoption and deployment are quick and easy and existing data in Microsoft Excel or Visio format can be directly imported to populate the data center. Report customization as well as adding additional reports and diagram templates can be done with existing staff further reducing the need for external professional services. Coupled with attractive pricing, these factors combine to make NetZoomDC have the lowest total cost of ownership and quickest ROI of all data center infrastructure management solutions," stated Sara Clark, President of Altima Technologies, Inc.
