Uplogix SRM appliances provide specific unique benefits to Managed Service Providers who have traditionally had to rely on multiple network management and server monitoring tools and the expense and burden of sending people to address every remote action or incident. Instead, Uplogix offers a single intelligent appliance for both network centric and out-of-bound monitoring, configuration management and remote access for network elements and application servers across Windows, Linux and Unix.
With extensive integration to power management and environmental monitoring technologies, the Uplogix 3200 and Uplogix 430 appliances can perform a number of tasks such as system restarts to reduce expensive site visits.
“By working closely with Uplogix from the start of this project, we can deliver a service that offers tangible benefits to our clients and help our engineers become familiar with the scope and capabilities of the Uplogix platform,” said Mills.
Uplogix has pioneered the industry’s first SRM appliance that integrates critical Access, Control and Enforcement (ACE) remote management functions to alleviate the risk, complexity and costs inherent in managing distributed IT infrastructures such as branch offices and remote data centres. The architecture integrates an always-available, secure and intelligent direct connection to the remote devices it manages that significantly reduces labor costs and allows IT professionals to focus on more critical responsibilities.
Uplogix provides the first fully integrated local management solution. Our co-located management appliances automate routine administration, maintenance and recovery taskssecurely and regardless of network availability. In comparison, traditional network and systems management depends on the network, uses multiple tools, and remains labor intensive.
