Critical remote infrastructure management for branch, campus & colocation sites

When downtime isn’t an option, keep critical systems online from anywhere

  • Secure: access remote applications with cloud-based out-of-band
  • Simple: install easily with powerful VNF orchestration
  • Scalable: deploy fast using true zero touch provisioning
  • Sensible: customize to your needs, from small to modular designs

Don’t let complexity risk your vital edge operations

Whenever downtime strikes, you lose $5,000 or more for every minute offline. Today’s network infrastructures add growing complexity, with larger deployments and many endpoints that make more room for outages. How can you eliminate cumbersome solutions and get more resilient branch, campus, and colocation networks?

ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid helps you deploy, orchestrate, and manage the edge at scale. Use consolidated devices that deploy entire sites in a single day; customize services and boost availability with extensible software and hardware; and use ZPE Cloud to manage everything from your browser. Nodegrid cuts complexity and keeps your edge free from downtime.

In speaking with Gartner…

Zero touch provisioning with out-of-band and cloud orchestration at scale is an incredibly rare package.

Scale to meet demand with secure, cloud-based orchestration

Branch deployments hold you back with long lists of manual work. Pre-configuring devices lightens this load, but risks sensitive info falling into the wrong hands. How can you scale quickly without putting your business in jeopardy?

Nodegrid helps you deploy automatically, with cloud-based orchestration that eliminates security risks.

One Intel-powered Nodegrid appliance replaces up to six devices, for functions like network, compute, storage, and failover. Use true zero touch provisioning via ZPE Cloud to remotely configure and orchestrate factory-default devices. Bootstrap VMs, activate service licenses, and automatically build your entire edge network.

With Nodegrid, you can scale in hours instead of days, with peace of mind knowing that your sensitive info can’t be intercepted by attackers. Speed up scaling without sacrificing security, and help your business meet demand.

“Customers in every industry are seeking automation, extensibility, and uptime; ZPE’s Nodegrid solutions are some of the most differentiated offerings on the market today.”

– Tarun Raisoni, CEO, Rahi Systems

Minimize downtime with extensible software & robust connectivity

Having more devices to manage means you’re prone to errors that can bring down entire sites. You need to minimize downtime, but a lack of customization means lengthy outages and troubleshooting.

The vendor-neutral Nodegrid OS features a Linux shell and rich API library, so you can script troubleshooting commands and integrate your choice of third-party solutions. A powerful hypervisor lets you virtualize based on your needs — from running guest OSes and applications, to hosting custom Docker and LXC containers.

Nodegrid devices feature robust connectivity via hardware expansion modules. Add compute, power, storage, and interface connectivity, with up to two 5G backups for unshakeable availability.

Completely customize your environments to maximize uptime, whether you need to uphold SLAs or boost in-store customer satisfaction.

Optimize experiences with cloud-based management at scale

Whether managing nodes in an Equinix datacenter or smart manufacturing robots, nothing grinds business to a halt like disjointed user experiences. How do you access critical components — including colo and edge compute — to optimize user interactions?

With Nodegrid and ZPE Cloud, simply use your web browser to push configurations, execute scripts, and manage solutions at scale, including colo and edge compute. Whether you’re in charge of a large enterprise or manufacturing facilities, you can provide in-depth network support with virtual remote hands.

Nodegrid’s secure out-of-band gives you untethered access to keep critical systems online and optimize experiences.
