Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)


PATCH MANAGER provides a powerful solution for the management of your data center floor space, rack space, IT assets, energy and other resources with integrated end-to-end connectivity management capabilities.

With realistic template based modeling that maps one-to-one with the actual infrastructure, PATCH MANAGER provides data center professionals with a powerful application for managing their connectivity in a simple yet effective manner.

Productive in no time

Gone are the days when professionals are willing to accept a tool into their work flow that is so complex that it requires considerable training and ongoing consulting services just to be usable. With PATCH MANAGER, you can be up and running in no time, with its easy to use interface based on standard conventions shielding the user from the underlying power of the application.

System Integration

To augment your current management system architecture with a ‘best-of-breed’ approach or to integrate live data (for example from SNMP sources, network management systems or device discovery tools) into the application and avoid maintaining the same data in multiple data stores, PATCH MANAGER provides an extensive API for integration with third party systems. In keeping with our philosophy of open, widely accepted standards, the API uses Web Services (via JSON/REST) technology.

Low cost of ownership

PATCH MANAGER seamlessly fits into your organization’s application portfolio, imposing no additional requirements. PATCH MANAGER is easy to deploy, with out of the box OS support for Windows, Linux and Solaris, all popular commercial and open source database types and a standard browser based client interface. A further option that is becoming ever more popular is to take advantage of the PATCH MANAGER Software-as-a-Service or (SaaS) solution, whereby the application is instead hosted on cloudservers, completely removing the need for any installation, configuration or maintenance.
