Ensuring data center infrastructure uptime and resource availability is one of the three security principles of the CIA Triad (confidentiality, integrity and availability). While there are many tools at the disposal of today’s data center engineers and managers, very few of them offer end-to-end visibility into the entire data service path – compute (virtualized and hardware), network and storage. When data center personnel have the ability to understand how resources are utilized, from both a capacity and a performance perspective, they can optimize system performance and prevent service disruptions, ensuring high availability. OnCommand Insight (OCI) provides near-real-time monitoring of the components of the hybrid data center (cloud and on-premise) and gives the ability to visualize data patterns (trending and forecasting) for capacity planning measures. OCI audits device change events and correlates their occurrences to the impact that they have on underlying application infrastructure. OCI’s proactive and reactive alerting features reduce MTTR (mean-time-to-repair), ending the “I/O blender” effect between multi-domain operations. Finally, OCI enables secure access to each device monitored, via communications protocols such as SNMPv3, TLS 1.2, etc., while providing CAC (common access card) access to all of its user interfaces.
