EMC upgrades application-discovery appliance

EMC has announced an upgrade to its application discovery appliance, the Smart Application Discovery Manager, which is designed to help users better understand and map relationships among applications and infrastructure components.

ADM gives users an inventory of applications and maps how they are linked to IT resources, such as servers, network devices and storage arrays. A built-in dependency catalog lets enterprises keep track of software and hardware configuration changes and compare them on a server-to-server basis.
