Use Cases

  • Holistic data center and cloud visibility
  • Root-cause analysis
  • Compliance and audit
  • Enhanced provisioning and automation
  • Workload optimization

Benefits

  • Faster issue resolution
  • Lower application down-time
  • Reduce manual documentation time (and cost)
  • Reduce compliance risk

It has also reduced the time spent managing our IT assets by a good 40 to 50 percent. We have also used the solution in conjunction with audits of our IT assets and, in that context, it saves a lot of time when everything’s right there at your fingertips. I would estimate that it saves 50 to 60 percent, in terms of time, when doing audits.

Device 42 is so for the easiest and quickest infrastructure discovery deployment software I have ever seen in the discovery and configuration management space. Its cutting edge features and capabilities created to handle Infrastructure Planning and Migrations are awesome.

Ravikanth B.

We use Device42 as the source of truth for our automation deployments. Simple, clean and it has API functions that allow us to access the information on any platform.

Uri U.

The first use case is the most important. It is Application Dependency Mapping. We want to track what is dependent on what. We want to know when something goes down or a change is made. We are also trying to use it as a change management database for what hypervisor is in what rack which links over to what business application is running that uses what services and has what account. We have information scattered in a lot of different places. This seems to be a very nice solution for taking everything, integrating it together, and linking it all up.

Giovanni S.

Our use case for Device42 is to capture all our infrastructure in a single tool. We need the ability to have that view of where our infrastructure is: servers, storage, network equipment, and applications sitting on top of servers. Our use case is to have that single pane for where all that is.

Yasin S.

Device42 is a source of trust for many things in our company, like IP addresses. In the past, we tried to have IP addresses centralized in an Excel spreadsheet, but now we have built automation to get information from Device42 with an API call. As a result, it’s possible to deploy a new VM in 15 minutes and all the information is pulled from Device42, by our automation, to build that new VM.

While understanding what assets are deployed across the data center infrastructure is a critical component, it’s also important for organizations to create and maintain a comprehensive, accurate profile of the software deployed on machines across the entire IT infrastructure.

  • Catalog installed packaged software, patches, and versions
  • Compare current usage to license counts
  • Detect prohibited software
  • Track license agreements and expiration dates
  • Identify purchased vs. installed software

Application Dependency Mapping

Application Dependency Mapping (ADM) allows Device42 to auto-discover application dependencies and service dependencies on a deeper level across your entire network. ADM is valuable in a range of scenarios. Migration and transformation projects are informed by the detailed dependency information that ADM surfaces. Lifecycle operations ITSM and DevOps are likewise enhanced as information about downstream impacts from incidents is made available.

  • Agentless services and application discovery using native protocols.
  • Application dependency diagrams visualize application to device relationships.
  • Use Application Impact Lists to reduce risk and potential downtime.
  • Automatically discover application components for applications such as Oracle, Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB, IIS etc.
  • Detailed configuration discover for major applications like Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ColdFusion, IIS, Apache, and more.
