Uplogix is a network independent management platform that is located with - and directly connected to - managed devices. It can stand alone or augment your existing centralized management tools providing the configuration, performance and security management automation functions that are best performed locally.
The benefits are reduced operational costs, faster resolution when issues arise and improved security and compliance vs. centralized only management.Our enhanced focus on network and communications devices hardens your infrastructure for increasing performance and availability requirements deriving from the use of applications like video conferencing, SaaS and VDI and makes M2M applications economically feasible.
Management Systems have traditionally been centralized, depending on the network to do their jobs, as this was the best approach for dealing with the challenges presented by distributed heterogeneous computing platforms typical of client server architectures. This never really worked well for the network infrastructure itself and the “state of the art” of network management has barely progressed beyond monitoring and planning. As a result network operations have long been exceptionally expensive and labor intensive.
With M2M/IoT pushing more network infrastructure to the edge and cloud computing creating greater strain on the network while increasing its criticality, this must change. The necessary response is to establish local management nodes to address the most significant vulnerability of the new computing model – network dependence and sensitivity. Any viable management system in the new architecture must have the ability to function independently of the network and bring a strong focus on ensuring network performance and availability via robust and reliable automation.
A robust management architecture requires both central and local elements.
Uplogix is the first and only Local Management Platform. It is a patented solution designed from day one to combine specialized software and hardware for the local deployment of management functionality while making the most of collocation. Uplogix is unique in the following ways:
Uplogix extends fundamental systems management capabilities to network devices, including:
Uplogix is completely network independent:
Uplogix makes automated network configuration and change management (NCCM) feasible by making the process reliable:
Uplogix Local Managers can do more:
At the core of Uplogix is our patented OutBand™ Technology Platform that combines:
