BMC Discovery automates asset discovery and dependency mapping to give IT a crucial visibility into infrastructure’s process of driving digital business. It creates a dynamic and complete view of the data centre and multi-cloud assets, and also highlights their relationships. Each scan explores the dependencies for all software, hardware, network, storage, and cloud services, and investigates their information. This provides the IT the necessary inputs required to create an application map. Discovery starts mapping an application from any piece of information about it. It can cover more than 4,000 data centre assets and has a proven track record of generating a five-year average ROI of 470% with a payback period of just 8 months.
Key Features at a Glance:
QUICK, HASSLE-FREE INSTALLATION
Discovery is a virtual appliance which is ready-to-run. It doesn’t need any type of installation or configuration and doesn’t have specific OS requirements. It can be deployed in a few minutes and requires minimal maintenance.
BMC Discovery allows installation of only those utilities that are extremely significant. It is compliant with NIST STIG and supports FIPS 140-2 encryption standards. The application extends detailed configuring access rights, strong encryption, and depth of discovery actions.
CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT DATABASE (CMDB) INTEGRATION
Integration with Remedy CMDB with continuous data synchronization is one of the salient features of Discovery. It also extends web services and database integrations which can be used to synchronize the data with other CMDB technologies.
REFERENCE LIBRARY TO KEEP TRACK OF ASSETS
Discovery keeps a record of and presents the dates for end of life, support, and extended support for common operating systems, hardware, and software, so you can identify unsupported software and hardware to plan for upgrades accordingly. The hardware reference library stores and provides vendor specifications for hardware power and thermal ratings. Moreover, it enhances the discovered software with Common Platform Multi-Cloud Context Enumeration (CPE) information provided by the National Vulnerability Database which helps security operations to detect dependencies associated with vulnerabilities.
INSIGHTS INTO CONTAINERS AND CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE FOR BETTER SERVICE AWARENESS
Discovery provides insights into infrastructure dependencies on containers and container orchestration tools across IaaS, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), and traditional computing. This gives clarity about the costs of running containers and provides better service awareness.
Discovery for Storage and Discovery for Multi-Cloud are optional add-ons that you can avail with Discovery. Discovery for Storage is a content pack that allows storage components from 25 virtual and physical storage brands to get included in ITSM processes. Discovery for Multi-Cloud enables cloud-friendly mapping of assets and their dependencies from a single screen, leveraging APIs and agentless protocols.
Ensure fast, accurate, and secure cloud and on-premise asset visibility with BMC Discovery.
