Device42 est une solution logicielle basée sur le cloud pour la gestion de l'infrastructure informatique et l'administration complète des réseaux et des data centers. Avec une automatisation prometteuse par rapport aux méthodes papier, manuelles et souvent moins précises, les administrateurs doivent s'attendre à une plus grande visibilité de l'infrastructure grâce aux mises à jour continues et planifiées de la base de données de gestion (CMDB). En détectant les modifications à mesure qu'elles surviennent afin d'atténuer les altérations du réseau informatique planifiées ou inattendues, les entreprises peuvent établir des interdépendances entre les périphériques et les applications, tandis que les diagrammes rack et même les présentations des salles de serveurs fournissent des représentations intuitives des configurations réelles.
En outre, Device42 offre une gestion complète des adresses IP avec prise en charge d'IPv6, la gestion des câbles pour le traitement de la connectivité des panneaux de brassage et la gestion des stocks avec le codage QR. Des codes personnalisables avec des numéros d'actifs attribués automatiquement peuvent être imprimés sur des étiquettes par lots et analysés à des fins de suivi d'inventaire à partir d'appareils mobiles. Un journal d'audit enregistre toute modification apportée par les administrateurs autorisés et comprend la gestion des mots de passe cryptés AES256 avec audit de l'accès et des autorisations basées sur des rôles à plusieurs niveaux. Les autres fonctionnalités concernent la gestion des licences logicielles, les contrôles de l'alimentation, la surveillance de l'environnement, la cartographie d'impact, la visualisation des ports de commutation, la gestion des enregistrements DNS, le reporting et l'importation/exportation de données au format CSV.
This has become a tool to nearly everyone in the organization. It has allowed us to keep track of a very dynamic environment and ultimately improved user workflows. These types of benefits improve our quality of work and allow us to save time in many ways for other aspects of our business.
One of the best things about Device42 is their amazing customer support; they are very quick to address issues and are always implementing feature improvements. Device42 also offers a one-stop-shop for all things DCIM, a robust IPAM, Password management, and additional add-ons such as power monitoring that has ultimately helped improve our workflow and organizational capabilities. Their auto-discovery tools are quite in-depth at pulling information from our devices.
With all software, there will be bugs and issues to workout, but Device42's willingness to tackle and improve upon their platform constantly is what keeps us coming back. Auto-discovery can be difficult to implement depending on the complexity of the environment but the addition of remote collectors has definitely helped.
Each team would maintain multiple spreadsheets for physical inventory, passwords, rack diagrams for each datacenters, warranty information and software licenses. Having one tool to manage all this information simplifies everything and makes it easier to update everything . One pane of glass as they say.
When I first started using Device42 I was impressed with how helpful the sales team was in the deployment process. Once deployed I noticed how many tools were included in the base software. In the first few weeks after deployment in our data centers we needed to quickly run an inventory of all of our SSL certificates. Using Device42 we were able to run in an automated scan that gave us a report that we used to update all of our SSL certificates. The more you use the software the more things that can be useful for you company. I can also say that their support is top notch and always willing to help and work with you until your problem is fixed.
There is not much to complain about when it comes to this software. If I have to nitpick I would say that it would be the update process. I would prefer for the updates could be directly installed. Other than that its a great product to use.
The support is great and helps us when we have both large and small questions. The dependency chart is
appreciated by our change manager.
Great tool with many features, you can start with one area and populate it and then move on to next area until all is linked together. We started with the IPAM area to get away from our Excel spreadsheets. I realy like the feature that lets me populate something and then export that data into Excel. In Excel I can quickly add more rows of same type of information and then import it back into Device42. We have also started to leverage the welldocumented and powerfull API. The ability to add custom fields helps you to make sure you can add business specific information.
The autodiscovery features are really powerfull and sometimes picks up unneaded information. An improvment here would be to bbe able to exclude som information and connections.
Overall, Device42 has been a fantastic addition to our IT software stack. With the feature set included with the product, we ended up with a very powerful tool that has fulfilled needs way above and beyond our initial project scope, and at a fraction of the price of other competing products.
If you are looking for an ITAM system, and you don't at least do a Proof of Concept rollout of Device42, you're making a mistake.
The feature set for Device42 is fantastic, we were pricing out only ITAM systems when we came across the product line, and for less money than any of the other ITAM systems we looked at, Device42 came with an ITAM, IPAM, a software licensing tool, and a support team that actually answers questions and provides access to live agents rather than some anonymous support team.
Their support people are great, even for casually emailed questions to their support address, I get actual responses (not just a canned "We got your email" response) in typically a couple hours.
They have helped me a TON with setting up the software, which is amazingly helpful in tempering the only "con" we have found with Device42 so far (more on that below).
We have been using Device42 for a few months now, an the only "complaint" I would say that I have found is that the setup was very involved, and required substantial support from the Device42 support team. That said...they were available literally every step of the way, and helped me get through anything I got stuck on over remote session.
For us, Device42 is really one of the best data center infrastructure management platform out there in terms of flexibility. It’s extensive RESTful API offers wonderful possibilities and has allowed us to integrate into our internal systems as well as a number of other areas in our organization including VMware vRealize Automation
It’s a highly accessible inventory and asset management application that offers a lot of functionality with minimal hassle and a reasonable cost. And the best part is it just keeps getting better with every iteration.
At the moment, bringing up connections on a single device or rack can be done easily without a hitch, but we’d like to see more of it in a much larger scale. Their customer support has been really good though in addressing all other issues and they promised to get back to us if this gets included in development.
