Multiple Options for Deploying Uplogix

Uplogix can be deployed in a variety of ways depending on your existing infrastructure and network management needs. We have two hardware versions of our purpose-built Local Managers, the Uplogix 5000 and Uplogix 500. Each provides a local platform for running the Uplogix Local Management Software (LMS), and share features like an option slot for internal modems, dual management Ethernet ports and on-board storage.

The Uplogix LMS has also been virtualized, and can be run as a VM letting you take advantage of an existing investment in extensible Cisco Integrated Services Routers with support for SRE Modules and HWIC serial port adapters, or on a local server with connections to devices through a console server.

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.

Uplogix LMS on a Virtual Server Connected via a Console Server

Uplogix LMS on a Virtual Server Connected via a Console Server

Uplogix LMS is installed on a virtual server connected via an Ethernet cable to a Console Server in order to provide LMS with network-independent console port connections to one or more managed devices. This configuration creates a fully functional Uplogix Local Manager. This option is ideal when console servers are already in place and available for use.

Uplogix LMS on a Virtual Server Using the LAN

Uplogix LMS on a Virtual Server Using the LAN

Uplogix LMS is installed on a virtual server accessing managed devices over the Local Area Network via virtual console ports. When a server is available this approach requires no physical changes at the site where managed devices reside, while delivering much of the functionality of a full Local Manager. This solution offers a fast, easy, cost effective way to gain the benefits of out-of-band management for many applications, but may not be suitable for all scenarios.

Uplogix Control Center

The Uplogix Control Center enables out-of-band management by providing a centralized point of control for all Uplogix Local Managers and through this, of managed devices deployed throughout your distributed IT environment. With its web-based graphical user interface (GUI), Control Center puts IT administrators in control of real-time data to easily manage, configure, and control all network devices and servers connected to Uplogix Local Managers.

Uplogix Control Center is deployed on a pre-configured, dual CPU, rack-mountable server, and includes an embedded Oracle database engine. It is also available as a VM to run on a customer-provider server. Consult with Uplogix Professional Services for minimum requirements for a UCC VM installation.

Key Control Center Capabilities

  • Single interface for centralized management | Consistent, enterprise-wide point of control for configuring administrative policies for and scheduling all maintenance, management, configuration, and recovery tasks performed by Uplogix Local Managers. Simple point-and-click interface for executing enterprise-wide management tasks, such as distributing patches, resetting passwords or performing configuration changes.
  • Seamless Integration with centralized systems and network management consoles | Serves as a point of integration with other management systems and solutions; alarms and events appear as if they came from the managed device itself.
  • Flexible Reporting | Robust and customizable reporting of event, alarm, and device statistics, network service level measurements and the operational status of your Uplogix local Managers across the enterprise
  • Extensible Automation | Simple interface for users to define custom actions for Uplogix Configuration Management & Recovery – Archives and stores configuration files for all managed devices and can quickly restore good working configuration file to a managed device via the Uplogix Local Manager
  • Compliance Reporting | Archives all session logs from Uplogix Local Managers and Control Center for auditing and compliance purposes
  • Persistent Connectivity | Serves as a central proxy for seamless in-band or out-of-band communication with Uplogix Local Managers.
Uplogix Control Center serves as an element manager for an Uplogix deployment.
