Console Management raised to a new level with Opengear Smart OOB™

Out-of-band (OOB) access to critical infrastructure was pioneered 30+ years ago. It began as a DIY solution where engineers used terminal servers or repurposed hardware with serial ports to access infrastructure. With the growth of crammed data closets and sophisticated data centers, software tools (PuTTY, OpenSSH) allowed sysadmins to create console management solutions.

Today, the exponential growth and increased complexity of IT infrastructure — M2M, Cloud, IoT — drives the need for smarter real-time decision-making, deeper data analysis, and robust data storage at the network edge. Infrastructure must be more resilient. Sustained outages can cripple an enterprise. Traditional console management isn’t enough.

Enter Opengear’s Smart OOB™ solution to raise console management to a new level:

  • Secure remote out-of-band access and infrastructure management
  • Alternate path to remote sites for monitoring, auto-response and remediation to increase uptime and IT resilience
  • Monitor everything including the physical environment (network, server, power, environmental, storage) to proactively detect faults before they become failures
  • Integrated cellular connectivity (4G LTE, 3G) certified with major carriers globally to increase uptime
  • Failover to Cellular™ to ensure faster recovery from network/IT failures

Don’t settle for “dumb” solutions when Opengear Smart OOB™ provides increased uptime and IT resiliency. Learn more.

EVENT RECAP: Vantage Minneapolis

Vantage Thank You

The Vantage Minneapolis event on June 3, 2015 brought in over 120 local Minneapolis solution providers, Ingram Micro   associates, and Manufacturer representative attendees to the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Minneapolis. With the event theme of “Improve Your Vantage Point – how to prepare for the new IT”, Ingram Micro’s objective was to improve our customers’ vantage points by helping solution providers and manufacturer partners build their businesses and be more   profitable by developing 3 key areas:

1) Understand today’s market challenges and offer relevant solutions

2) Identify and bring new market opportunities to our partners

3) Enable our partners to focus on their core businesses and leverage our vast capabilities

One of the main highlights of the day’s agenda was the Keynote Address from Michael Rogers, Practical Futurist, who recently completed two years as futurist-in-residence for The New York Times and is a columnist for NBC.com. He is also a best-selling novelist whose fiction explores the human impact of technology. He shared great insight on the future of technology and where it’s taking us. Find out more about Michael here: http://michaelrogers.com/

Attendees also received a better understanding of the 2015 Top CIO Priorities and how to leverage the many offerings of Ingram Micro and manufacturer partners.
