Pre-configured CMDB

Pre-configured CMDB

No need for a long, drawn-out CI design process because all your CI's and relationships are pre-configured. But Device42 does not simply lock you into an inflexible structure. You can create your own CIs and relationships to complement the built-in structure provided. Additionally, you can define user, groups, passwords, and object-level permissioning.

Visualizations

Visualizations

Once your data is loaded, it's time to reap the benefits. Device42 offers an extensive and highly-customizable set of reports and inquiry screens to access your CI data. But even better, provides an extensive set of visualizations including:

  • Your computer rooms and racks with power and capacity heatmaps
  • Your full IP connectivity and power chain
  • Your hardware, software, and application dependencies
