EasyDCIM v1.11
Release Notes

EasyDCIM v1.11.0 rolls out Debian 12 support and ASUS driver

At EasyDCIM, we understand that going with the flow of the most up-to-date technologies is pivotal to put your data center at the forefront of the dedicated server market. As we are determined to achieve this goal, we keep pushing boundaries. Today we are glad to announce that you can confidently take another step on your path, as the new 1.11.0 version of EasyDCIM has just been rolled out. Let’s have a look at what’s in store now. Welcoming Debian 12 Staying true to our word, we decided the time has come to bid farewell to Debian 11, and embrace full support for its powerful successor - Debian 12 “bookworm” which from now on will stand as the sole supported system for installing EasyDCIM and remote agents. Since the launch of Debian 12 brought a comprehensive suite of new packages (over 11089 to be precise, contributing to a total of over 64419 packages!), updated software, and advancements for users across various fields, there’s no way EasyDCIM’s compatibility with the latest version of this prominent Linux family member can go unnoticed. Among the benefits you can expect of this powerful integration, here come the most noteworthy ones: Seamless installation and updates of EasyDCIM and remote agents thanks to the implementation of a new installer and updater Improved smoothness and security of essential computer operations due to upgrading the majority of the system’s libraries to the most recent version Enhanced performance of the platform and even better protection from digital threats resulting from a series of vital improvements Swift transition from Debian 11 ensured by EasyDCIM's automatic upgrade feature Given all that, the question whether we could lay any better and more solid foundation for our platform remains purely rhetorical. Let’s proceed then. New layers of Redfish support On the occasion of the release of version 1.9.9, we boasted about our IPMI integration extension tying the compatibility knot between EasyDCIM and the Redfish protocol in order to streamline the management of servers from widely-recognized manufacturers such as Dell or Supermicro. Our today’s launch breathes a fresh scent of novelty into this sector by introducing a new driver tailored explicitly for ASUS servers. This feature opens the door to automatic identification of essential server information as well as gathering detailed data on the server hardware components, including processors, RAM, hard disk drives and solid-state drives, and network interfaces. The Redfish protocol now also proves useful when it comes to careful monitoring of the server performance - thanks to automatic detection of sensors in ASUS, Dell and HP servers, and integrating their parameters into EasyDCIM, you can constantly keep a watchful eye on your infrastructure and promptly address any malfunctions. Where do we go from here? More in the field of proactive maintenance is expected in future updates of EasyDCIM, as we are currently working on enabling administrators to set custom limits for sensors and to receive email notifications whenever any of these limits are exceeded. Expanding on the topic of administrative tasks and their smooth flow, let's not forget that the Redfish protocol allows remote device restarts and boot/shutdown actions. Keeping track of power consumption How about being able to define limits on the amount of power that servers can consume? Thanks to the new function added to our Usage Collector extension, you can establish thresholds for power usage for servers that support the Redfish protocol. What’s more, you can now receive email alerts if a server exceeds the predefined setting so that proper preventative action can be taken. Previously, this option was only available for PDU devices via the SNMP protocol. Wrapping up now, we are excited for you to get a glimpse of the big picture regarding our recent accomplishments. The best way to do that? Simply head over to our website. Feel free to do it right away - the changelog of EasyDCIM v1.11.0 is all set, and ready for your visit! View the Changelog!

EasyDCIM v1.10.0 Release
Release Notes

EasyDCIM v1.10.0 upgrades focus on automation and security

With the turn of the season comes another major progress for EasyDCIM, marked by taking a fresh step toward the ultimate simplicity in data center management. Curious about how far we have come this time? Look no further than the just launched EasyDCIM v1.10.0! There wouldn’t be much development going on in our realm if we weren’t aware that every single tech tool needs to regularly absorb new functionalities that go hand in hand with growing expectations of the users. With this simple truth in our mind, we’ve been, again, tinkering with the platform’s architecture to reach higher automation and security levels, and by doing so make sure that every single aspect of your data center ecosystem is taken care of properly. Let’s take a quick tour around the new additions then, shall we? Add devices in a flash We always aim at facilitating and simplifying data center routines, which is why we have implemented a new form that streamlines the way of adding devices to your system. Our goal was to automate all key actions behind the scenes, minimizing the need for manual intervention on the administrator’s part and significantly speeding up the entire process. Here’s the list of crucial tasks that thanks to the new feature can now run automatically in the background: Placing the device in a specific location within a rack cabinet in your facility Providing essential network information for the newly added device: IP address, MAC address, default gateway and mask Integrating the device with the switch port and the PDU power outlet Setting up the IPMI access information Testing the connection to the switch, PDU, and IPMI interface Keep SSH keys close at hand As the times are turbulent when it comes to digital safety, we don’t hesitate to go the extra mile in our attempts to make our platform rock-solidly secure, which we did this time by updating our OS Installation extension. We’ve attended to this matter by moving away from end-user passwords and adding support for SSH keys right at the installation stage. This solution allows administrators and clients to add their SSH keys to EasyDCIM, then select the desired key during the installation of an operating system, and use it afterwards in order to log in to the dedicated SSH server without entering a password. One more noteworthy piece of news is that this feature is available for nearly all of our supported Linux-based operating systems. Fedora Server 39 on board When talking about reaching new mileposts in the development of OS Installation extension, we can’t fail to mention that the list of available system templates has been expanded so that now it also covers Fedora Server 39. Here’s a quick breakdown of actions that can be performed during the automatic process of installing this operating system: Selecting the appropriate geographical region, time zone and the preferred language for the user interface and system messages Disk partitioning Creating user accounts along with the root password Configuring network interfaces Installing additional system packages Installing post-installation as well as first boot scripts By the force of habit developed out of the need to maximize our platform’s potential, we haven’t restricted our efforts to just putting up a display of new features. What follows right behind is a host of improvements, including those introduced to IPMI Integration and Usage Collector extensions. They contribute to a more streamlined and user-friendly experience for system administrators and users alike, and enhance both productivity and management capabilities. The EasyDCIM journey continues, with no end within sight. Why not follow our tracks more closely? Take a look at the changelog and discover all the details behind the release of version 1.10.0!

DigitalServers.net Case Study - EasyDCIM
Case Studies

Expanding Horizons with Smart Automation – DigitalServers.net Case Study

In today's fiercely competitive industry, merely opening a data center is just a small piece of the puzzle when it comes to establishing your brand and achieving success. To stand a chance, you need to surround yourself with an impeccably robust toolkit and continually explore new ways for expanding your business. The challenge lies in navigating the market's countless product options, which - however wonderful they may be - is likely to leave you with a headache. How do you avoid getting lost in the maze of software solutions, each tailored to a different facet of your growing data center? This brings us to Intellectica Systems Inc., widely known by its trade name DigitalServers.net - an enterprise that began their operational activity in 2008. Since then they have been making their mark by providing clients with different types of tailor-made hosting solutions. Aiming to uncover their success story, we asked Nizamuddin Khawaja, Director at DigitalServers.net, to what extent EasyDCIM has helped shape their current business landscape. Looking for the tool that lets you have it all As Nizamuddin points out, the company’s major focus from the start was on finding a tool that would facilitate the management of their data center infrastructure, lifting the burden of relying on various systems delivered by multiple vendors. And this was by no means an easy task, given the numerous processes encompassed by the definition of management in this industry context, and considering how essential it was to ensure these tasks were performed smoothly, efficiently, and in a maximally automated manner. When asked about the reasons for adopting EasyDCIM, Nizamuddin didn’t hesitate to list all aspects he wanted covered with the help of just one comprehensive and unified solution: “Since the beginning we always looked for an all-in-one solution that could do automated OS installation, inventory management, IP management, bandwidth pooling from switches and KVM over IP access to clients over private IP’s.” The swift acknowledgment of the direction in which the company’s strategy should evolve left no space for hesitation about the next move. Instead of juggling various software tools operating independently from one another, DigitalServers.net decided to go for an option that paved the path for streamlined management of numerous processes within the confines of one powerful system. As Nizamuddin eagerly admits, after adopting EasyDCIM as the company’s new platform, “everything worked like a charm from one panel”. EasyDCIM as a game-changer There are probably few things that frustrate server providers more than tediousness of day-to-day chores, repeatedly requiring a great deal of time, energy and effort that could otherwise be channeled to creating new opportunities for propelling the company’s growth. EasyDCIM basically grew out of our urgent desire to end the era of lengthy processes and laborious rituals that could not be conducted without more or less frequent human intervention. Our goal was to enrich our customers’ digital equipment with a panel that helps administer everyday tasks in the most automated and hassle-free manner possible. Observing the increasing interest in the possibility of integrating EasyDCIM with WHMCS, a widely used billing and automation platform, we soon embarked on a mission to join forces with experts from ModulesGarden. This partnership resulted in crafting two free-of-charge, highly intuitive modules - EasyDCIM Dedicated Servers For WHMCS and EasyDCIM Colocation For WHMCS, both instrumental in bringing much-desired billing flexibility and significantly enhancing the user experience. Look at how Nizamuddin Khawaja encapsulates the outcome of our successful undertaking: “EasyDCIM together with WHMCS helped us to lower our technicians' time and efforts that they used to put in to get a new customer onboard or to add new services to an existing client’s account.With EasyDCIM and WHMCS integration clients get all needed features from a single panel.” When nudged gently about his favorite benefit of using EasyDCIM, he replies confidently: “Best feature of EasyDCIM is order placement from WHMCS and automated provisioning of servers including OS installation and new server info email that is sent to clients.” Thinking about future chapters… Although things are going well and promising for Nizamuddin’s company, their growth strategy does not include staying too long in the comfort zone outlined by current triumphs. Every serious enterprise always strives for more, and so does DigitalServers.net. Currently, the company provides servers to clients from Amsterdam, Dallas and Las Vegas, however, an integral part of their development plan is to expand their reach to such locations as India, Dubai and Helsinki. Ambitious as it all sounds, we have absolutely no doubt this mission will be accomplished. Encouraged by Nizamuddin’s account of his experience with EasyDCIM, we couldn’t help but ask him whether he would recommend our solution to other companies. His immediate positive answer brought smiles to our faces and made us feel a fresh surge of excitement for future development of the control panel. There are always new goals emerging, and we are thrilled to persistently work toward them. Enticed by the concept of joining the EasyDCIM community? Feel invited to do so and see for yourself how our platform can help your business thrive!

EasyDCIM v1.9.9
Release Notes

EasyDCIM v1.9.9 makes strides with Redfish and Duo Security!

It was just a blink of an eye ago that our marketplace welcomed a major update - the platform has officially opened up to the integration with HostBill, courtesy of two brand-new (and free!) extensions: Dedicated Servers For HostBill and Colocation For HostBill. Now, fully aware that the dust has barely settled, we are announcing that another anticipated step on our developmental path has been taken. Let us shed some light on the freshly unveiled EasyDCIM v1.9.9! Redfish ProtocolFacilitating server detection Our major focus is always on freeing server management from chaos and complexity – one functional aspect at a time. And that’s exactly what has driven this fresh change, resulting in new features that will empower you with greater control over your elaborate infrastructure. Determined to respond to changing industry dynamics and community needs, we made our IPMI integration extension compatible with the Redfish protocol that stands out as a cutting-edge technology employed by the most prominent dedicated server manufacturers like Dell, Supermicro, and HP. R.I.P IPMI - Long Live Redfish? Increasingly recognized as a modern and more secure alternative to IPMI, Redfish stands ready to eventually replace it, emerging as the fresh industry standard for data center management. Does Redfish actually have a shot at it? It seems highly likely, given Intel's confirmation that there are no upcoming updates to the IPMI specification to be expected. The implementation of this solution revolutionizes the whole auto-discovery process, previously anchored solely in the SNMP protocol and its support for network devices. It creates space not just for the automatic detection of dedicated servers, but also facilitates convenient access to detailed information about various server components, including: Processors - with data on: the model, name, and cores. RAM memory - with data on: the model, label, serial number, and memory size expressed in gigabytes. Hard disk drives (HDD) and solid-state drives (SSD) - with data on: the model, manufacturer, serial number, description, and disk size expressed in gigabytes. Network interfaces - with data on: the description, MAC address, name, and operational and administrative status of the port. The whole operation smoothly fits into the pattern of simple and convenient navigation. You just need to enter essential access information - IP address, username, and password; the rest is up to EasyDCIM that automatically identifies the server and adds it to the system with all its components. It is even possible to successfully discover entire subnets – in that case, the subnet has to be provided in CIDR notation, which prompts EasyDCIM to create discovery tasks for all IP addresses in that particular subnet. More than just discovering devices, Redfish integration has broadened EasyDCIM's feature set with remote restart and boot/shutdown actions. Duo SecurityPutting you at ease In the era of an increased number of cybercrime instances and threats, it’s not surprising that the issue of security remains one of the major concerns reported by our clients. Taking a proactive stance, we decided to enrich the Two-Factor Authentication extension with seamless integration with Cisco Duo Security. This two-factor authentication solution based on the new Universal Prompt has been quickly gaining popularity in the market for its robust safety features. When it comes to smartphones, you can download the Duo Mobile app that utilizes the two-step verification function to further enhance login security in EasyDCIM. A bonus touch of simplicity Last but not least, we channeled our efforts into the revamping of how EasyDCIM manages noVNC sessions, i.e. it facilitates the server's KVM console connections by means of the noVNC technology. Now the noVNC session relies on the main SSL certificate of the EasyDCIM domain. This enhancement worked into the IPMI integration extension considerably simplifies configuration, eliminating the need for additional certificates dedicated solely to noVNC sessions. We know exactly how to set the ball rolling, don't we? And we make it roll directly toward the forefront of technology, correcting the course every single time we spot an area for improvement. Now, assuming we have successfully whetted your appetite for more specifics concerning the 1.9.9 release, we highly recommend reviewing the detailed changelog available on our website.

Leveraging Reseller Networks for Optimal Data Center Growth

With technology advancing at breakneck speed, staying ahead of the curve is essential for any data center looking to thrive. One forward-thinking strategy gaining increasing traction is establishing a reseller network. This article delves into why having resellers on board can revolutionize your business dynamics, and how Products Reseller For WHMCS can help you seamlessly navigate through this vibrant, ever-changing environment. Benefits This collaborative distribution model empowers you to leverage the strengths and circles of independent partners to promote and sell your dedicated servers. As demonstrated through a spectrum of reassuring case studies, the advantages of building a reseller ecosystem only grow over time, extending far beyond mere sales numbers. Challenges However, with great power comes great responsibility. As the number of benefits multiplies, so do the challenges associated with managing resellers, which can be increasingly felt as their ranks continue to grow. While WHMCS stands as the industry standard for orders and billing management in web hosting, it's essential to factor in that there might be a mixed bag of preferences among your resellers. Some may gravitate toward alternative platforms that resonate better with their unique business strategies, which may lead to a bit of a hiccup in communication and workflow. Ensuring a uniform experience for each reseller, no matter their system choices, is crucial for maintaining consistency and professionalism. Bridging the Gap Surprisingly, there didn't appear to be a single comprehensive solution dealing with challenges like these until a few years ago. That's when ModulesGarden took the initiative to build one from the ground up, drawing on their nearly decade-long expertise in WHMCS software development. This is how Products Reseller For WHMCS was born. The module's continuous evolution took an exciting turn for the EasyDCIM community when the integration with another ModulesGarden creation has been announced. Specifically, with the free EasyDCIM Dedicated Servers For WHMCS which streamlines the provisioning and management of EasyDCIM servers, all from within the WHMCS interface. This unique combination of WHMCS modules represents a universal equipment for managing various reselling operations, tracking revenue, and working with multiple reseller groups. Importantly, Products Reseller For WHMCS comes with its own API, allowing resellers to seamlessly offer your servers across different platforms. For providers, the level of control is unmatched, as Products Reseller For WHMCS enables you to organize resellers with similar target markets into easily manageable groups, each equipped with their own individual pricing settings. With detailed graphs and billing summaries generated dynamically in the addon, you are always up to speed - simply drill down into specific servers and timeframes until you find the level of detail you need. It only gets better from here - not only can your resellers handle vital tasks from whatever system they see fit, but they also have the flexibility to dive into the dedicated Reseller Area located right in your WHMCS, complete with insights on end-client orders and applicable pricing rates. This ability to take remote actions on sold servers adds an extra layer of convenience and control into their reselling experience. We can all agree that extending top-notch service to end customers is just as crucial. Products Reseller For WHMCS eliminates the hassle of logging into multiple accounts, allowing the clients acquired by your network to oversee their EasyDCIM servers right from the reseller's platform. Beyond basic actions (booting, rebooting, shutting down), they also enjoy access to dynamic graphs illustrating changes in total traffic. The Big Picture To complete the picture of the module's impressive capacity and energetic progress, let's not forget that Products Reseller For WHMCS has recently celebrated a brand-new release, featuring a dedicated integration with EasyDCIM Dedicated Servers For WHMCS in version 2.2.0 and beyond. Is there a more compelling push to invest in your success? As we wrap up our exploration of reseller networks, remember this: they are not just about business, they are about genuine relationships. So, go ahead, and witness firsthand how building a robust reseller base around your EasyDCIM experience may be just the catalyst your data center needs to soar in today's competitive reality. The journey might start with a single partnership, but the potential is boundless. Seize it! And to all the curious minds looking for an even more in-depth knowledge on the subject, we invite you to explore our documentation, rich with comprehensive insights. View the Guide!

LDAP Authentication and Debian 12 support arrive in EasyDCIM v1.9.7!

Revitalizing our website was quite the adventure, but don't think for a second we've taken our eyes off the main prize - our control panel. On the contrary! Now that we have this sleek modern marketplace where you can smoothly browse all the extensions tailored for EasyDCIM, the timing feels just right to introduce you to something entirely new and outstanding: LDAP Authentication - the star feature of the latest EasyDCIM v1.9.7! This just in: LDAP Authentication Running a data center often means juggling a multitude of users on a daily basis. This involves setting up access permissions customized to each user's role. With LDAP in the mix, this entire process becomes as painless as it gets, not only saving valuable time and enhancing security standards but also streamlining the authentication by centralizing it. Did you know? LDAP was born in 1993 when a group of developers dedicated themselves to making accessing directories easier compared to the older Directory Access Protocol (DAP). They developed a protocol with fewer lines of code, making it a perfect fit for individuals using regular desktop computers. The LDAP Authentication extension, in essence, connects EasyDCIM with the widely used LDAP directory services like Microsoft Active Directory for Windows and OpenLDAP for Linux. Its practical purpose? To make user and administrator authentication in EasyDCIM quick and trouble-free through the use of the trusted LDAP credentials. By handling synchronization jobs and choosing how often they occur, you’re always in control, making sure everything syncs up just the way you like it for your team. Plus, in case of any updates in the LDAP directory, the extension will take care of syncing them up with EasyDCIM automatically. It's that simple! Meet the Bookworm Debian 12, playfully nicknamed "Bookworm" after one of the less known Toy Story characters, has emerged as a serious challenger to Windows 11 in the race for the title of the best operating system. The last stable release of this Linux-based distro opens the door to a genuine alternative that puts power back in the hands of users. An undoubted highlight in Debian 12's bundle of features is its reliable pledge to long-lasting support. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Debian Security and Long Term Support teams, Bookworm gets a comforting five-year coverage. This means you can trust Debian 12 to be your go-to for computing adventures, free from the constant rush to upgrade or switch to newer editions. With OS Installation v2.0.3 released for immediate use, you are invited to benefit fully from a new template crafted specially for Debian 12, streamlining the stages of installation and setup for your added convenience. From picking your preferred time zone and language to effortlessly installing those crucial first-boot scripts - the extension got every step covered, and then some! Maximizing productivity, one detail at a time Before we wrap things up and encourage you to dive into the full changelog for a more in-depth look, let's glide through a couple of additional features in EasyDCIM v1.9.7 that simplify some of your daily rituals in managing a data center. Mass server power control: It doesn't get any easier than this: all you need to do from now on is select a bunch of rows in the "Servers" table, trigger the power action, either on or off, and watch the tasks get queued up for action. It's a real time-saver and a friendlier electricity bill, too! Seamless server swapping during order process: Picture this - you've got an active order, and the dedicated server assigned to it encounters an unexpected hiccup. Yikes! But no worries - now you can swiftly swap it out. No need to cancel and re-order, just make use of the “Replace Asset” option. Easy peasy! Now since you're clued in on all the major updates that have just landed in this release, we recommend taking a closer look at the complete list of changes to track all the charming little details that are still waiting to be explored!

EasyDCIM v1.9.6 – The evolution continues with PHP 8.1 and Unix OS!

Watching as technology nowadays bends over backwards to keep up with rapid shifts in customer requirements, we continue to progress in our own mission to deliver the equally cutting-edge offerings within our platform. It is by following the current industry breakthroughs and actively responding to user demands that EasyDCIM soldifies its position as a reputable DCIM solution provider. In this article, we'll take a deep dive into the key highlights of the all-new 1.9.6 version and how this update contributes to enhanced security, seamless adoption of the latest innovations, and enriched operational potential.

EasyDCIM v1.9.5 cuts the frills of custom ISO files management!

Having the inquisitive mind of technology explorers and industry trend followers that we are, we focus habitually on what new features can still power up EasyDCIM, but never lose sight of how to constantly improve the range of existing functionality. The all-new 1.9.5 release, arriving with substantially more freedom in terms of OS installation, leaves no room for doubt that if something can be done better, smarter or in a more flexible way, we won’t aim for anything less. Using custom ISO images? No sweat! To fully understand how much of a difference EasyDCIM v1.9.5 really makes, let's first take a look back at how the platform worked so far. Up to now, the OS Installation extension has allowed the main process to be handled by means of predefined installation templates, based mostly on data repositories of distributions like Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. This solution has proven to work perfectly well... unless the client needs to install some custom operating system based on an ISO image on the server. That is where OS Installation For EasyDCIM 2.0.1 comes into play. With the brand-new option to mount ISO images by end customers via noVNC sessions, they can easily carry out the installation of any preferred ISO-based operating system. As you surely would like, EasyDCIM has got you covered when it comes to all essential steps involved in the process, including setting limits and automatically removing files that are no longer needed. The list of OS templates goes on Another notable point of growth marked in the timeline of OS Installation extension concerns the choice of available system templates which now covers also Fedora 37 Server and CloudLinux 9. The range of performable actions is no different to what you've already grown accustomed to while using other installation templates, but if you need your memory refreshed, here’s a quick run-through: Time zone and language configuration Disk partitioning Creation of user accounts and root password Configuration of network interfaces Installation of additional system packages as well as post-installation and first-boot scripts Next layer of security Now if there's one thing that can catch the attention of administrators, it's the security of their data centers! As a guaranteed protection against any sort of unauthorized access, EasyDCIM now provides the ability to determine the IP addresses allowed into the backend section of the platform. To be precise, the new release empowers admins to specify either individual IP addresses or whole subnets from which the management panel can be entered. Because we can all agree that no amount of security is too much!
