NetOps Console Servers bring NetOps and Smart Out-of-Band together, in one appliance
Opengear, a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network access and automation to critical IT infrastructure, announced the launch of the new NetOps Console Servers. These appliances are the first of their kind, capable of running standard Docker containers, and bringing Smart Out-of-Band and NetOps automation together in a single piece of hardware.
The new NetOps Console Servers are the only Out-of-Band appliances in the industry to feature both an x86 processor and a secure boot process to protect against configuration and firmware tampering.
- The units support standard Docker applications, which means users can deploy their own automation modules, and third-party or Opengear NetOps Modules, on the console server itself.
- The embedded TPM 2.0 chip adds a level of physical security to Out-of-Band provisioning that is unique to Opengear appliances, keeping its content protected even in insecure remote facilities.
- A large internal flash memory (16GB/64GB in the OM1200/2200) provides enough storage to keep configuration and software files on site, where they are needed.
Opengear’s Network Resilience Platform provides secure remote access to critical network devices through a separate management plane. It has the ability to automate NetOps processes, such as securely deploying and provisioning equipment, and to access Remote IP devices at any edge location. All of Opengear’s appliances are designed specifically for Out-of-Band management, and manufactured at Opengear’s facility, allowing the company to maintain a consistent design approach and full control of quality and inventory management
