Cisco Live 2012

It was great to see existing customers come by our booth at Cisco Live 2012 and start advocating our products to other users nearby. One of the most common phrases we hear at the booth from current customers while pointing at our products “That thing saved my bacon”.

Thanks to all that came by the booth to learn about our out-of-band appliances, and a special thank you to all of our current customers that dropped by to colorfully evangelize our solutions.
Opengear Saved my bacon

With our new ACM5500 line we are now seeing this first child CM4008 being overshadowed by more powerful (but still very cost effective) younger siblings. So it is timely to reflect back on the evolution of serial console management and out of band connectivity.
June 20th, 2012 Empowered DCIM Manages More than just Power
