Discovery – Event Management
In the early days of networking, when computing resources were primarily used for research, “network management”, was unheard of.
Today high-speed computer networks have become not only a
necessity of doing business but a way of life. In the future dense servers will
be expected to do more than just undertake menial data center workloads such as
serving up web page front-ends. Network virtualization and tiered storage are
set to be the next big consolidation in the data center.
Network management software is designed to enhance the operation, administration, and provisioning of networks and related assets within the network.These powerful, comprehensive applications allow businesses to better control and maintain their IT networks by centralizing and automating all activities related to tracking, monitoring, servicing, and fine-tuning its components. Its role is crucial in network and cyber defense.
