Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, together with Egenera, today announced the Intelligent Data Center – a management and automation solution that unifies converged networking, computing and virtualization to provide visibility and control to the entire data center. By leveraging the OneFabric architecture from Enterasys and Egenera's PAN Manager, the Intelligent Data Center offers a best-of-breed solution that ensures key business applications meet the availability, capacity, response time, security and compliance requirements to ensure business objectives are met.
Coupled with the Fusion SDN Connect Integration Service from Enterasys, the Intelligent Data Center provides policy-based management and provisioning of network services for any user, device and application. The solution also provides IT granular visibility and control into all devices, users and applications on the network. As an open solution, the Intelligent Data Center helps IT organizations avoid vendor lock-in and offers a simplified, cost-effective data center management solution.
"The massive growth in the numbers of devices, users, applications, and virtual machines in data centers is putting significant pressure on IT departments to accelerate and optimize performance and availability. The traditional and siloed approach prevalent in many IT organizations simply can't scale effectively and economically enough to keep up with these changes," said Chris Crowell, president and CEO of Enterasys Networks. "The Intelligent Data Center from Enterasys and Egenera provides an economical solution for creating a logical data center that enables quicker provisioning, monitoring and management. This allows IT to apply more time, energy and budget to innovating and moving the business forward."
