Top IT Infrastructure Tools

DevOps engineers, SysAdmins and IT Professionals need time to design and engineer for the business, so they need to automate as many day-to-day tasks as possible.  The environment is diverse and complex, so automation can help the business keep up to date.  Fast and flexible service is in high demand.  Private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid cloud can all benefit from infrastructure automation tools.  Here are a few tools:









Google joins the Open Compute Project.  “Over the last few years, Google also shared some information about how it powers its data centers, but now it has also signed on to work with Facebook and others to work on the OCP Open Rack project, for example. This project aims to bring 48 volt power distribution to data center racks. Google says it has been working on 48V rack power distribution since 2010 and, in the process, it found that it was 30 percent more energy-efficient that its previous-generation 12V systems.”

ScienceLogic acquires AppFirst to bolster its IT infrastructure monitoring service.  “ScienceLogic itself already offered its users deep insights into their infrastructure, but more and more, its users were also asking to get real-time data about their full stack, up to the application level. We want to give you a single pane of glass to monitor your IT infrastructure,” Denning said. “But now our customers want us to come further up the stack into the application. That’s especially true as more enterprises start experimenting with microservice-based solutions and software containers (and occasionally use them in production, too).”

DCIM can help decision-makers:

  • Locate, visualize, and manage all of their physical assets within an integrated “single pane” view of the entire infrastructure
  • Automate the commissioning of new equipment, reducing the need for error-prone, time-consuming manual tasks like walking the floor to confirm what can go where
  • Automate capacity planning with unparalleled forecasting capabilities, including the use of “what if” scenarios
  • Reduce energy consumption, energy costs, and carbon footprint – save the planet while you’re saving potentially millions
  • Align IT to the needs of the business – and maintain that alignment, no matter how radically those business requirements may change and grow

Here are the top 10 Infrastructure Tools according to NetworkWorld.
