Asset Management

The term asset in a Hyperview context refers to a standalone device (such as a CRAC), or something that hosts other assets (for example, a rack). Commonly used asset types include IT equipment, facility infrastructure, containers, virtual machines, blade devices, and so on. An asset can be physical or virtual (such as a server and virtual server, respectively). It could even be an abstraction that represents a physical entity (for instance, a location that represents a data center).

As an application Hyperview is robust enough to recognize and correctly categorize any kind of asset ownership by a given organization. Provided you have the necessary access privileges, you can manage all aspects of an asset, including its properties, child assets, components, sensors, layout, and so on.
