Fremont, CA, August 10, 2021 – ZPE Systems launches a new applications marketplace, along with a portfolio of USB-type environmental sensors, meant to help organizations leverage valuable data generated by their IT components. As networks and users become more distributed, it’s imperative that organizations uncover hidden data to optimize availability and user experiences. Nodegrid sensors allow organizations to collect critical data points, for deep insights into their infrastructures, systems, and security logs, among other categories.

Enterprises in telco, content delivery, manufacturing, and other industries can benefit from Nodegrid Data Lake. This application gathers previously uncollected data points to give network admins and engineers visibility into key performance indicators (KPIs). Nodegrid Data Lake helps inspect and visualize data points for:

  • Infrastructure components, such as power, cooling, relay, dry contact
  • Environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, air flow
  • System utilization, such as disk usage, processes, memory
  • User experience applications, such as Office365, Zoom, point of sale
  • Security, such as system logs, data logs, GPS data
  • Networking, such as data traffic, application profiling, antenna/tower traffic
  • Previously hidden server and switch logs from IPMI and RS232 serial console

Gartner considers Nodegrid Data Lake a killer app, as it’s indispensable to maximizing business continuity and avoiding downtime.

ZPE Cloud’s additional applications help enterprises and resellers gain further insights and convenience. These applications include:

  • Extended Storage — Save time with centralized file management and add disk space via the cloud
  • Generic Forwarder — Secure distributed users with software-defined perimeter gateways on-prem or cloud-delivered
  • Reports — Drive smart decision making with comprehensive reports on device availability and other metrics
  • Palo Alto Prisma Access — Easily manage Palo Alto security solutions using centralized access
  • ZPE Cloud mobile — Never lose sight of network performance using the ZPE Cloud mobile app, available free on App Store and Google Play

These applications begin an extended product roadmap designed to optimize the configuration, access, and management capabilities offered via ZPE Cloud.

ZPE Systems also launches USB-type environmental sensors, to help ensure optimal utilization of critical physical infrastructure components. These sensors can be managed independently via Nodegrid devices, or via Nodegrid Data Lake for complex event processing. Nodegrid sensors support alert triggers and tracking, and integrate seamlessly with ZPE Cloud’s management interface. Available sensors include:

  • Temperature and humidity
  • Airflow and temperature
  • Smoke
  • Particulate
  • GPIO
  • Relay
  • Proximity
  • Beacon (no alarm)
  • Beacon (with alarm)
  • Door lock with RFID tag

“IT staff struggle with downtime, yet their infrastructure generates so much valuable data that goes to waste,” says Arnaldo Zimmermann, CEO and Cofounder of ZPE Systems. “Our apps and sensors help capture this information. They can use it to prevent device failures, adjust cooling systems, or pinpoint why their Zoom app is suddenly lagging, for example.”
