Uplogix as a Virtual Machine
Deploying Uplogix Virtually
While the Uplogix Local Management Software (LMS) was originally developed for use on the Local Managers, it is also available packaged as a virtual machine. Virtual Local Managers can be mixed and matched in the same deployment with Uplogix Local Managers. This creates the opportunity for tremendous flexibility in the way that customers create Local Managers for use in their Uplogix deployment.
Customers can save money by using hardware they already have or by consolidating servers. This also allows customers to use standard hardware from preferred vendors. In addition, this creates the opportunity for deployment on special purpose platforms such as WAN acceleration appliances or other specialized devices that run VMware.
Virtual Uplogix Control Center
The Uplogix Control Center provides a centralized point of control and configuration for all of your Uplogix Local Managers, enterprise reporting, and serving as a consolidated point of integration for centralized management systems. In a standard deployment the UCC is delivered as hardware/software solution, but with the Virtual UCC, customers can use any hardware platform that meets system prerequisites with a VMware hypervisor.
