Why RAMP DCIM?
RAMP DCIM is the only DCIM with full auto-discovery, automated change management, software management, and the ability to monitor everything in the data center from virtual machines to IT equipment (servers, network, storage) to facilities equipment (power, cooling, and environmental).

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 DCIM’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 DCIM can also automatically map relationships between devices.
RAMP DCIM 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 DCIM can verify that the change was properly made. RAMP DCIM manages change for both physical and virtual devices.
RAMP DCIM monitors both IT and Facility infrastructures. RaMP can monitor server CPU, disk drive usage, 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. RaMP supports IPMI, iLO, iDRAC, SSH, SNMP (v1, v2, and v3), Modbus, BACnet, WMI, WBEM, and vCenter – without having to purchase additional modules or link with other products.
