Nodegrid Gate SR

Nodegrid Gate SR

Fully Flexible Converged Infrastructure Management Solution. Ideal for Provisioning your Branch IT Devices via the ZPE Cloud.



Nodegrid Gate SR brings agility to the network. Perfect for both the data center and branch, Nodegrid Gate SR packs tremendous power in a small form factor, resulting in a truly robust and dynamic, secure infrastructure management solution. Configure and manage Gate SR via the ZPE Cloud.

Nodegrid Gate SR is the latest addition to the Nodegrid SR family of open infrastructure management solutions. Based off of our widely popular Nodegrid SR product line, the Nodegrid Gate SR raises the bar by bringing additional compute power and ports to the table; run even more Guest OS applications, Virtualized Network Functions (VNF’s), Docker and Kubernetes containers than ever before.

Nodegrid Gate SR also tends to the needs of the IoT space with the inclusion of 4x GPIO ports for environmental monitoring sensors and dry contacts. (i.e. door alarms, temperature and humidity sensors, smoke detectors and more). Sensor data exceeding thresholds? No need to worry; Nodegrid addresses things immediately with built-in automation tools – Execute response sequences to fix things before/as they happen.

That’s not all – Gate SR brings power to your attached devices with 4 x PoE+ ports; Connect your access point, camera, phone and other POE devices directly to Gate SR. Consolidate further your deployment by hosting the applications directly on the Gate SR for a truly converged infrastructure management solution.

Nodegrid Gate SR also offers the best Out-of-Band remote management and access for serial consoles, multi-vendor power management, IPMI, cellular failover and Wi-Fi.
