World Wide Technology Partners with Uplogix
Leading systems integrator looks to Uplogix for new approach to secure remote management of its customers Cisco infrastructure
Cisco Live!, Orlando, FL (June 23, 2008) – Uplogix®, the leading provider of secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with World Wide Technology (WWT) to offer its fully-integrated remote management solutions. WWT is a best of breed systems integrator that provides technology and supply chain solutions to the commercial, government and telecom sectors. The partnership will enable WWT to help its customers cost-effectively manage highly distributed network devices and applications running on Cisco Service Oriented Network Architecture (SONA) infrastructure.
“WWT is focused on partnering with companies that can help our customers reduce the complexity and costs associated with the management of IT infrastructure,” said Matt Horner, vice president of professional services with WWT. “The Uplogix SRM platform delivers best in class remote management capabilities to actively fix network-related problems that in-band/SNMP approaches cannot reach or address. With Uplogix our customers can immediately reduce labor costs by addressing problems faster and eliminating unnecessary support calls and trips to remote sites.”
Traditional network and systems management tools are typically used to discover, monitor and report the status of the production network using in-band protocols such as SNMP. The effectiveness of these tools is based on whether the IP network and devices that host them are available. When production network connections or devices fail, IT staff is left “in the dark” with no means to control or gather diagnostic data about the state of remote devices. As a result, costly truck rolls to the remote site are required so technicians can perform what are often simple recovery actions.
The Uplogix SRM platform can efficiently manage Cisco network infrastructure because it is deployed at the edge of the network to ensure an always-available, secure and direct connection to the devices being managed. Combining the local access and control of a console server, the in-depth monitoring and diagnostics of systems management software, and the intelligence of an on-site technician into a single, integrated platform, Uplogix reduces the number of tools needed to support remote sites, while it improves end-user service levels and lowers support costs.
“Joining forces with one of Cisco’s leading partners brings us one step further to making remote management of the Cisco infrastructure stronger, more secure and always available for end users,” said Tom Goldman, CEO, Uplogix. “We look forward to what the future brings.”
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.
