Building a more resilient network with Out-of-Band management

In today’s fast-paced digital economy, ensuring consistent IT network performance is imperative to business. Customers expect 24/7 IT asset availability, regardless of how complex it is to manage distributed network infrastructure. And when network equipment inevitably crashes so do profits and and productivity. According to an IHS study, businesses lose $700B annually due to IT downtime1. Given the dependence businesses have on network performance, IT administrators need a robust set of tools at their disposal for bringing mission-critical devices back online, especially when the primary production network fails. The good news is that secure and reliable remote access to IT infrastructure is possible using Out-of-band Management (OOBM) technology, which is now a core capability of many remote management plans. This white paper examines the trends and tools of OOBM infrastructure as well as reviews Lantronix’s market-leading IT management product portfolio for deployment in data centres and remote branch environments.
