There's no such thing as a single pane of glass. Everything we interact with today has it's own UI. Performance monitoring applications, storage arrays, virtual infrastructures, enterprise application, etc all have their own management interfaces.
So... do you fall into one of these categories?
The idea spawned because I had trouble keeping track of 6 VMware environments in our lab. Within those 6 environments, there were 100+ Applications. Bookmarks would have been messy and I got tired of sending emails trying to figure out what servers hosted which applications.
JumpSquares is your personal home for a new way to bookmark environments and keep track of all your applications by using search, sorting, and tagging capabilities. A simple concept, but very useful.
Creating a JumpSquare is very simple.
On the surface, it's pretty bare but it holds some good information. Hover over the JumpSquare to reveal the jump location as well as your description (only for desktop users). Hover over the server that was configured to see the type of remote access that has been configured. This example doesn't allow you to edit or delete the JumpSquare, but if you own the JumpSquare you can do anything you want.
I know some of you may be security cautious (even though internal DNS will do the name resolution), so in addition to the hosted version, I have created a virtual appliance. This way, it can be hosted internally and you don't have anything to worry about. We're supposed to be moving to the cloud anyway, so register first, give it a go, and see if you really need to deploy your own appliance.
The appliance version:
