Opengear launches new solution for data centres

Opengear has announced that it is launching its new family of console managers, the CM8100. As the latest addition to its Smart OOBTM Console Server family, the CM8100 adds NetOps capabilities to existing Smart OOB features that simplify connectivity to IT equipment.

The CM8100 provides resilient and secure remote access to infrastructure devices while enhancing security and automation for better smart out-of-band management.

Gary Marks, President of Opengear said, “IT infrastructure needs to be resilient and easy to manage without relying on the network to manage the network. Whether IT teams need to bring up new devices, manage existing ones or remediate outages, they must have resilient access to the network from anywhere. Regardless of the state of the production network, Opengear’s CM8100 provides engineers with the remote and reliable connectivity they need to be successful. It is yet another milestone in our long line of solutions designed to help engineers overcome today’s challenges such as travel requirements, security restrictions, and a lack of connectivity.”

The Opengear platform and CM8100 enhance console access with modern automation capabilities. The CM8100 also helps IT personnel remotely provision, manage and remediate devices. Likewise, it enables remote access to even the most sprawling and complex infrastructure, such as switches, routers, PDUs, firewalls, and other critical data centre equipment. Additionally, CM8100 appliances establish secure VPN tunnels which connect IT, and staff, to remote devices. This provides local access to Ethernet and RS-232 console ports via standard UTP patch cables. The resilient connection of the CM8100 is available to either IT staff or applications to configure managed devices.
