Nodegrid Service Processor
Service Processor Management Done Right.
Nodegrid Service Processor is the ultimate IPMI, BMC and IoT Management solution providing secure, hyperscale remote access to management ports of network capable IT devices, regardless of vendor.
Nodegrid Service Processor at a Glance
Nodegrid Service Processor is a powerful network switch with 48x 1Gb and 4x 10Gb network ports. It provides a secure network segregation serving as a gatekeeper between the management network and the management ports of your critical network assets, such as virtual serial, SDN, VM’s and IoT devices, and especially Service Processor Servers: iDRAC/Dell, Redfish, ILO/HP, CIMC USC/Cisco, ILOM/Oracle, IMM/IBM, IPMI, and Rack PDUs, any vendor.
Built-in Enterprise Grade Security
Security in place: Firewall, Authentication/Authorization, configurable secure services and TCP ports, VLAN configuration to group specific devices together (VLAN segmentation).
No Java, No Problems
Zero compatibility issues – HTML5 viewer eliminates the Java version mismatch headaches and browser security settings all too familiar with KVM sessions and viewers.
Nodegrid takes care of it, allowing users to launch any KVM and MKS session smoothly, without a hitch.
Secure Private Network
Nodegrid Service Processor provides a private network to all IPMI Service Processors and PDUs with IP addresses assigned by Nodegrid’s DHCP server.
Single Pane of Glass View
Single pane of glass for all your IPMI, PDUs, VMs, BMC, so you don’t need different software or applications to access each types of asset.
You no longer need to memorize their IP addresses or hostnames either, Nodegrid makes it easy to browse to the target device of your choice.
Nodegrid Service Processor provides fast, secure, and reliable In-Band and Out-of-Band access to the management port of IT devices, including servers, network, storage, power and IoT sensor devices. Nodegrid is the ideal environment to manage OpenBMC devices of the Open Compute Project (Service Processor). With Network Security in mind, the Nodegrid Service Processor features an HTML5 viewer (for SoL and Native KVM), Virtual Media Support, IPSec, VLAN segmentation, Monitoring, Firewall, User Access Rights, Alert notifications, Actionable data and more.
