Bookmark and Share

Open Source Data Centre Infrastructure Management System – openDCIM – now has reached the 3.1 version. We've covered the initial releases here, so it is very nice to see the project is still progressing. Data center industry definitively needs tools like this. Also, there is a new developer…

The crew behind openDCIM now consists of three members: Scott Milliken, Wilbur Longwisch and Jose Miguel Gomez (new developer).

It is worth to be noted that since the version 1.0 there are the following institutions officially reported to be using openDCIM:

  • Adam Data Centers (Madrid, Spain)
  • AT&T R&D Center (Tel Aviv, Israel)
  • Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa, Israel)
  • Miniclip (London, UK)
  • National Human Genome Research Institute (MD, USA)
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN, USA)
  • Red Hat (Asia/Pacific Region)
  • Tractor Supply Company (TN, USA)
  • University of Hawaii (HI, USA)
  • University of Missouri (MO, USA)
  • Vanderbilt University (TN, USA)

We can test openDCIM capabilities online (without installation), under the following link – however, currently there is version 2.1 installed.

It is also good to know that there are some video tutorials published on YouTube by Scott Milliken. Check them out:

openDCIM Installation
openDCIM Data Center Mapping
openDCIM Using Device Templates
openDCIM - Contacts, Departments, and Users
openDCIM SNMP Network Features

Personally, I'm a huge fan of this project. I hope it will be more popular and – with such a great tutorials from Scott Milliken – this is very possible. All the best for openDCIM project in the forthcoming New Year, 2014!
