Partner Webinar: Tim Infratech – For Day One, Every Day, and When the Network Goes Down

Partner Webinar:
For Day One, Every Day, and When the Network Goes Down!

Jan 21st, at 11:00 AM IST (1 hour)

Out-of-Band management’s primary application is to provide secure, remote access to your critical devices even when the primary network is down. It offers presence and proximity to your distributed network, with a console server at every location, physically connected to routers, switches and key hardware. The addition of 4G-LTE provides a secure alternative access path, and Failover to CellularTM provides enough bandwidth for critical processes to continue to operate during an outage. When the network goes down, Out-of-Band keeps you running.

Join Brendan Walsh, Opengear’s Sales Director for Asia Pacific and Monish Chhabria, Managing Director, Tim Infratech as they discuss secure remote management of your critical network infrastructure and and how an investment in Out-of-Band Management is an investment that pays off every day.

Here’s what we’ll discuss on this webinar:

  1. The value of Out-of-Band Management in a resilient network
  2. Why Opengear is the best tool for network administrators allowing them to work from home
  3. Keeping the network up and running during travel restrictions

The Road to Resilience

The Road to Resilience

A series of webinars, moderated by Roy Chua of AvidThink, exploring the idea of network resilience. Each panel session features IT leaders from around the industry, sharing their viewpoint.

#3: Network Resilience: The Key to Uptime in the Data Center
On Demand

Failure is not an option when you’re managing a Data Center.

So to be sure that the operation is reliable, all parts of the data center must be considered – from the applications software at the top of the stack, through to the physical IT infrastructure in the rack, and down to the facilities supporting that hardware.

In this webinar, Mark Harris of the Uptime Institute, shares his thoughts on the key factors behind operating a resilient data center. We also discuss some of the findings in the Uptime Institute’s 2020 Data Center Industry Survey, which reveal what operators around the world are thinking, doing and planning in the areas of efficiency, resiliency, and new technology adoption.

#2: Network Resilience across the Globe. How i3D.net
The Supports Gamers Around the World
On Demand

Rick Sloot, COO of i3D.net, a Ubisoft company, manages a high-performance global network, hosting online gaming, VoIP services, and enterprises for over 250 million users. Which means downtime, or even an “average” level of latency, is not acceptable and scalability of service is key. Rick discusses the challenges of operating this global infrastructure in 26 countries across more than 40 POPs.

How are other IT organizations managing their distributed networks? In a survey of 500 global IT professionals, 49% stated that improving Network Resilience was their #1 priority, and 31% reported losses of more than $1M in 12 months due to network outages. Alan Stewart Brown, VP EMEA, shares the findings from this survey, and talks about ways to ease the burden of uptime KPIs.

#1: Out-of-Band Management: More than a Safety Net?
On Demand

From the earliest terminal servers to today’s advanced out-of-band management appliances, network engineers have always understood the need for a safety net when the network goes down. But that investment can yield much more.

Just as the introduction of SDN drove the separation of the Control and Data planes, it’s now time to liberate the Management plane. A truly resilient network needs an independent management plane: a secure, admin-only network to manage and remediate issues outside of the production network, on a daily basis.

Gary Marks, President of Opengear, and Todd Rychecky, VP Americas, discuss the evolution of Out-of-Band Management, with Roy Chua of AvidThink.

Network Resilience:
The Key to Uptime in the Data Center

On Demand

Failure is not an option when you’re managing a Data Center. So to be sure that the operation is reliable, all parts of the data center must be considered – from the applications software at the top of the stack, through to the physical IT infrastructure in the rack, and down to the facilities supporting that hardware.

Resilience is important in all three of these layers. The software must be managed robustly via complex virtualization approaches and cloud platforms; the IT hardware can be strengthened with a combination of out-of-band management and redundant equipment; and the provision of appropriate power, cooling and other support systems maintains a resilient operating environment.

In this webinar, Mark Harris of the Uptime Institute, shares his thoughts on the key factors behind operating a resilient data center. We also discuss some of the findings in the Uptime Institute’s 2020 Data Center Industry Survey, which reveal what operators around the world are thinking, doing and planning in the areas of efficiency, resiliency, and new technology adoption.

The panel, moderated by Roy Chua of AvidThink, also features Ryan Hogg, Sr Product Manager at Opengear, who discusses the role of Out-of-Band management in building a resilient solution.

Here’s what you’ll find in this webinar:

  1. Explore the complexity of resilience in the Data Center
  2. Hear the latest research from the Uptime Institute
  3. Understand the value of Out-of-Band Management in a resilient network

Network Resilience across the Globe: How i3D.net Supports Gamers around the World

Network Resilience Across the Globe:
How i3D.net Supports Gamers Around the World

On Demand

When networks were housed in large centralized data centres, network resilience was often thought of in terms of redundancy. But as more compute moves out to the edge, any resilience plan must now consider secure remote access, ease of deployment, scalability, automation capabilities and how to minimize the use of third-party contractors

On this webinar, you’ll hear from. Rick Sloot, COO of i3D.net, a Ubisoft company. He manages a high-performance global network, hosting online gaming, VoIP services, and enterprises for over 250 million users. Which means downtime, or even an “average” level of latency, is not acceptable and scalability of service is key. Rick will discuss the challenges of operating this global infrastructure in 26 countries across more than 40 POPs.

How are other IT organizations managing their distributed networks?

Out-of-Band Management: More than a Safety Net?

Out-of-Band Management:
More than a Safety Net?

  On Demand

A natural disaster … cyberattacks …system-wide power outages… a global pandemic … Is your network ready for the next unplanned disruption, no matter what that is?

From the earliest terminal servers to today’s advanced out-of-band management appliances, network engineers have always understood the need for a safety net when the network goes down. But that investment can yield much more.

IoT, SD-WAN, 5G – every move towards a more distributed, more virtual network, increases the risk of failure and adds pressure to the physical infrastructure that keeps it all running.

Just as the introduction of SDN drove the separation of the Control and Data planes, it’s now time to liberate the Management plane. A truly resilient network needs an independent management plane: a secure, admin-only network to manage and remediate issues outside of the production network, on a daily basis.

In this webinar, the panel discusses the evolution of Out-of-Band management; considers its broader everyday use as the basis of a more resilient network, and outlines the value of implementing a Network Resilience solution that looks beyond reliability.

Here’s what you’ll find in this webinar:

  1. Hear research data on how IT leaders are approaching Network Resilience

  2. Understand the necessity of an independent management plane

  3. Discover the benefits of Smart Out-of-Band Management and NetOps automation
