What makes RaMP different than other DCIM solutions?
One of the issues that customers have with DCIM products is the time and expense to set up the product, in particular the capturing of detailed data for thousands of assets. In addition, manually entered data typically has a 10 – 15% error rate associated with it. RaMP’s ability to auto-discover detailed data at the device level greatly reduces setup time, cost and significantly improves the data accuracy. Besides gathering detailed information for each device, RaMP can also automatically map relationships between devices.
RaMP can recognize changes such as hardware configuration (memory added or a new firmware installed), software (installed or removed), virtual machine (added, removed, moved), network cables moved to another location, and so on. RaMP will catch changes which aren’t logged and can also verify the accuracy of a change. If a network cable was to be moved from physical port E8 to port E12, for example, RaMP can verify that the change was properly made. RaMP manages change for both physical and virtual devices.
RaMP monitors both IT and Facility infrastructures. RaMP can monitor server CPU, disk drive usage and sensors such as power and temperature. It can monitor power from the device to the utility and send alerts on abnormal conditions. It can monitor cooling devices and wired and wireless environmental sensors. The monitored data is reviewed in our data analytics engine and alarms can be triggered based on combinations of factors. This allows RaMP to detect potential failover issues before they occur.
RaMP is priced to allow you to start small and then grow as your needs grow. RaMP comes with all features, so there’s no need to sort through modules to see what you need to buy. Pricing is based on the number of devices or racks. If you just want to manage your rack power, that’s all you’ll pay for. If you want to add servers, VMs, and other equipment, simply upgrade your license to support more equipment. Large organizations can purchase an Enterprise license which will cover everything with a single license.
