Device42 Continuous Asset Discovery

How does the fact that the solution provides continuous asset discovery affect your operations?

Deepak Pund
Technical Service Engineer at Fujitsu
Continuous asset discovery lets you continuously monitor the resource utilization when using Device42, such as: Resources being used on your infrastructure. If there are new communications happening on your servers, then they are being captured in Device42. If there are any changes in your CMDB infrastructure, they are getting captured in your Device42 reports. You can download also these reports with a ServiceNow and other tools.

The continuous discovery of the infrastructure means we are able to review, and we are able to mitigate, things in a quicker fashion than we would have previously. If somebody had asked us five years ago how many Server 2008 servers we have, because we've got a vulnerability and we need to know how many servers we need to patch, it would have taken us some time to find that out. We would have had to go through all the different platforms and find out where we're hosting 2008 Servers. With Device42, we can go in and, within 10 minutes, tell the business how many servers we need to patch.

The continuous asset discovery is great. For example, a few months ago we installed new racks with new servers and, with automatic discovery, all the new racks are showing inside the tool. The people who have a password to get into the tool can check what kind of hardware was installed and how many virtual machines are inside the servers. That's great.

The continuous asset discovery is good because it means not having to manually input all the small data, such as IP addresses, leases, etc. It helps and saves us a lot of time.

The fact that it's continuous is convenient. We don't have to worry about it. It just works.

The solution provides continuous asset discovery, which is great. If there wasn't continuous discovery, then there would be no way to have devices updated if things changed.

The fact that the solution provides continuous asset discovery is key to our operation because we treat our instances like cattle, not pets. If something breaks in the build or along any step of the way, or something just stops responding, normally we just shoot it and spin another one up. So we have to have something that notices that something remotely changed, and that can then pull that back into the records inside of Device42.
