Automatic provisioning of servers to clients

DCImanager automatically provides clients with servers on turnkey basis in 5-10 minutes after ordering. It automates all operations to prepare the equipment for use. This helps save provider resources, reduce costs, improve service quality and competitiveness. Users access the service quickly and with minimal use of resources.

Automatic provisioning of servers

DCImanager automatically prepares servers for providing to users:

  • Diagnoses the state of the server and its components.
  • Partitions the disk automatically or manually.
  • Installs software.
  • Runs scripts.
  • Assigns IP addresses.
  • Connects to switches and PDUs

Users get ready-to-run servers, and administrators do not have to go to the trouble of configuring them.

Diagnostics of the server and components

After the client releases the server, DCImanager automatically performs diagnostics of its components and platform. It helps to make sure that the equipment is in working order and ready to be provided to another client. Diagnostic checks:

  • Number of CPUs, RAM, hard disks.
  • Disk read speed and capacity.
  • RAM damage.
  • Network adapters.
  • Local connection speed.
  • RAID controller status.

If an error is detected during the diagnostics, DCImanager will notify the administrator. Provisioning of a non-functional server to new users will be blocked.

Automatic OS installation

DCImanager automatically installs the OS from standard or custom preset templates. You do not have to configure the system manually every time to get the server ready to work. You can:

  • Use standard templates for popular operating systems from the DCImanager repository.
  • Create your own images based on the servers connected to DCImanager for further use.
  • Load ISO images.

Running scripts

DCImanager not only automatically provides a server to the client, but also configures the necessary software, thus increasing the quality of service. It supports Shell and Powershell scripts. The user only needs to select a script and it will be automatically executed after the OS is installed on the server.

You can upload your own scripts or use the ISPsystem repository, which contains popular scripts of current versions. Current versions of software for various tasks - such as virtual machines management, 1C and other tools — are supported.

Assigning an IP address

DCImanager assigns IP addresses or subnets manually or automatically. In integration with BILLmanager or another billing platform, you can set up billing of IPv4, IPv6, networks.

User VLANs and VPUs

Additionally monetize dedicated servers:

  • The User VLANs module allows the client to manually configure private networks.
  • The VPU (VLAN per User) module places the client servers in the same VLAN automatically;

With custom VLANs and VPUs, clients get all the benefits of VLAN, such as secure infrastructure and reduced broadcast traffic. Isolation of user servers additionally enables a hosting provider to prevent a number of threats, such as IP address theft.

Statistics from switches and PDUs, monetization of traffic and power consumption

DCImanager allows you to manage switches and PDUs, monitor their operation and generate additional revenue:

  • Monetize server traffic and power consumption or set limits.
  • View statistics from the equipment.

The equipment is polled every five minutes.

Data collected from switches:

  • traffic volume,
  • network load and
  • burstable load.

Similarly, DCImanager indicates power consumption. If the PDU supports collection of per-port statistics, DCImanager will reflect this data.

Traffic data in DCImanager Traffic data in DCImanager: you can choose the period for which the statistics will be shown, or view the total load or load per individual ports

Remote infrastructure administration

DCImanager provides multiple tools for remote management of equipment. For example, server management via BMC, power management, network and VLAN configuration, automated OS installation, etc. These and other features help you administer your IT infrastructure with minimal effort. Performing equipment maintenance with DCImanager is faster and easier than doing it manually

Client self-service portal

The client area is an individual section of the platform in which clients with user permissions can:

  • Turn on, turn off, reboot the server;
  • Erase and partition disks;
  • Install the OS from templates;
  • Restore the server after a failure;
  • Manage the server via BMC;
  • Change the primary IP address and domain name;
  • Create VLANs;
  • View traffic statistics;

In this way, users can perform basic operations without contacting support and get instant results. This also saves the resources of engineers, who do not spend time on completing typical requests from users.
