Device42 Feature Highlights & Screenshots

Feature Highlight

Device42: A Powerful CMDB with Auto Discovery, Application Dependency Mapping, DCIM, ITAM, IPAM, and more!

Discoveries are run continuously on a schedule, automatically detecting changes to your infrastructure as they are made, keeping your CMDB up to date. Device42’s CMDB can track everything you own including IP and Non-IP based devices and assets, hardware, software, the inter-dependencies between them all, and even resource utilization!

Easily document everything from buildings and room layouts, to racks, to the network and power cables that connect to them:

  • Easy Building – Start at the building level, and click to jump to a completely customizable visual room layout
  • Quick Viewing – Click again to zoom into a rack to view photo-realistic devices in Device42’s racks, and hover your mouse for quick view of any CI details
  • Detailed Info – Click any device to get detailed information, or move servers or patch panel connections with simple drag-n-drop.

Device42 makes cloud migrations easier, too!

  • Understand – Start with a website and view dependencies from the top down, or a database and go from the bottom up and create move groups
  • Plan – Use inter-dependency information in concert with resource utilization features to right-size move groups to target cloud instances
  • Analyze – Color coded rack heatmaps illustrate available space (U’s), power, or temperature
  • Customize – Leverage RestFUL APIs or the UI to quickly get your patch panel (or any other) documentation under control

Auto discover network connected hardware, devices, software, & services – and import data from any existing system

  • Discover – Automatically discover all your network devices with SNMP [Firewalls, Switches, Load Balancers]
  • Integrate – Integrations and universal bulk import tools can bring in data from spreadsheets, and can natively import from many third party software tools.
  • Automate – Powerful RESTful APIs mean you can use your favorite scripting platforms to create and keep your documentation up-to date.

DCIM features include powerful visuals, drag and drop, and tree views

Visual cable management makes recording and tracing cable connections as easy as point and click. Device42 makes searching easy, sorting simple (e.g. by IP), and provides for powerful filtering (e.g. by subnet).

  • Trace – Quickly determine what MAC address is connected to a switch port, and easily see the associated device
  • Understand – View impacts from the application, device, rack, room or building level
  • Visualize – Device trees expand to reveal nested branches that quickly show you all devices in a rack, all virtual instances contained within a physical server, or all the blades in a chassis!

Application Dependency Mapping (ADM)

Dependency and impact visuals are auto-generated from user-defined Application components from the bottom up. Visualize your inter-dependency details right down to load balanced services. Device42’s NetFlow collector is a powerful tool that adds another viewpoint for a deeper level of detail to dependency auto-discovery information from your environment.

  • Discover – Use topology views to discover dependencies and when planning your migration
  • Understand – See impact topologies from an application, device, rack, room or the building level
  • Right-size – Find everything that needs to move as a unit, and rightsize the target cloud instance for your move group with Device42’s resource utilization features
  • Impress – Your boss will love the visuals or we’ll take you out for beer on us (yes, really!*)

Granular Permissioning & Password Management

  • Simple – Multi-tenancy makes controlling access the system and defining what users can do easy
  • Granular – Get as granular as desired with individual and/or group level permissions, defining exactly who can (or can’t) view, edit, add, or delete what resources
  • Secure – Device42 securely stores passwords, too. All are encrypted (AES256) always [yes, even during and in backups], configurable, and feature audited access control.

Device42 includes everything you need to do IPAM right!

  • IPAM – Device42’s IPAM includes full IPv6 support
  • Track – Track detailed VLANs and subnets information
  • Automatic Calculate – Subnet ranges can be automatically calculated based on mask, and IP validation is automatic, too
  • Transfer Simply – Define and see what IPs are mapped (NAT rules) through your firewalls / routers / load balancers etc
  • Independent – Simply allow domain transfers from your DNS servers and schedule the auto-discovery and now DNS records are searchable & sortable, too
  • Records – Support for A, AAAA, CNAME, MX & PTR records.
