DC360Octopus - The Data Collector

FREE OF CHARGE: Automated collection of HW and SW configuration and log data, as well as performance and monitoring data.

More Information

DC360Octopus collects HW and SW configuration and log data, as well as performance and monitoring data from all supported resources (see Supported Resource List).
It is addressing PHASE 2 'Data Collection' of KnowledgeRiver's 'IT Services Optimization Cycle' (see Our Methodology).

First, the software has to be installed in the IT Services environment. Afterwards the desired devices must be configured.

The output of the data collection is a ZIP package (set of plain files). It can be stored as reference or it acts as input for DC360Dolphin ('The Analyst').

Additional features: Resources connection check, clearing of error counters, NTP (Network Time Protocol) test.

DC360Octopus is FREE OF CHARGE.

Hint: The collection is not replacing configuration backups!

DC360Dolphin - The Analyst

Automated homogenization and analysis of collected data (available as Saas or under license).

More Information

DC360Dolphin has three tasks:

  1. Homogenization of data collected with DC360Octopus (transform unstructured to structured data).
  2. Analysis of the data.
  3. Report / result preparation.

It is addressing PHASE 3 'Analysis'  and parts of PHASE 4 'Result / Decision' of KnowledgeRiver's 'IT Services Optimization Cycle' (see Our Methodology).
DC360Dolphin contains as knowledge base information in a structured format from several sources like vendor documentations, white papers, release notes and several more.

The analysis process and the result depends on the requested service.
Basically it is designed to check the compliance to market and vendor best practices and interoperability guidelines, but it is used for several services:

 

Beside the option to upload the collected data package to our DC360Dolphin server (SaaS - Software as a Service), there is an option for a DC360Dolphin license as integrated part of the DC360Manatee VM.
Latter, analysis are performed in the own environment and is therefore addressing security constraints respectively the requirement that analysis are planned on a very regular basis (interesting as well for Partners, see Partner Program).
