Opengear Console Manager Brings Out-of-Band Ease to Voxel dot Net
Opengear (www.opengear.com), a leading provider of next generation out-of-band management solutions, today announced that Voxel dot Net, Inc., a provider of managed hosting, content delivery network (CDN) and IP services, has implemented Opengear’s CM4148 console manager to provide out-of-band management of its network of dispersed servers.
“As we’ve expanded to more than 2,500 servers globally, Opengear’s out-of-band products have assisted us in implementing lights-out management across our international CDN and IP Network,” said Zachary Smith, President of Voxel. “And with our deep expertise in Linux, the Open-Sourced Software based Opengear products make sense from both a business and technical perspective.”
Voxel is a leading provider of managed hosting and content delivery solutions including dedicated servers, high availability managed clusters and managed application deployments for Fortune 5000, Web 2.0 startups, Carriers, Media & Entertainment, and Advertising Networks. With its own IP network and extensive peering across 15 U.S. and European POP locations, Voxel needed a console manager with a high port density, secure remote management capabilities and session-sharing capabilities.
“As a managed hosting provider, it is crucial that Voxel has a comprehensive overview and complete remote access to their complex network, and the 48-port CM4148 gives them the stability, flexibility and agility that they need,” said Bob Waldie, founder and CEO of Opengear. “Additionally, because it is based on Linux, they have been able to troubleshoot their heterogeneous environment, insuring continuity of mission critical operations.”
Opengear’s CM4000 family of console servers allows system administrators remote access and control of their data centers and networks. The CM4000 provides reliable, secure access to the serial console ports, embedded service processors and network console ports on Windows, Linux, SUN, HP and IBM servers. The CM4000 can be used to monitor and control network infrastructure such as routers, switches, firewalls, UPS, remote power, PBX, etc. from anywhere in the world.
