What is openDCIM?
openDCIM is an open-source Data Center Infrastructure Management solution that provides asset tracking, monitoring of space, power, and cooling, and contact management.
Why Should You Use the openDCIM Connector?
The openDCIM connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:
ensure assets are managed per your security policies
find vulnerabilities quickly and remediate
How Does This Connector Work?
Lucidum executes read-only requests to the openDCIM REST API and ingests only meta-data about openDCIM assets. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
