Jersey City, New Jersey – (The Hosting News) – November 1, 2006 – Tier-one colocation, dedicated data center, international Internet exchange and business continuity solutions firm, TELEHOUSE America, and IT operations management provider, Xceedium, have formed a strategic partnership to enable remote access to management dispersed data centers.
IT operations administrators worldwide, face the time consuming and costly task of managing several networks dispersed around the globe within a budget reduction environment. This increases the risk of security breaches and a lack of compliance with industry regulations. With incidents such as power, network and server outages and regulatory compliance issues occurring everyday, these have become top concerns at companies of all sizes; especially amongst the financial, insurance, healthcare, pharmaceutical, bio-tech and legal industries.
Xceedium’s GateKeeper appliance includes the following features:
* Effectively deploy data/operational center facilities to meet business continuity goals, while knowing security policies, management needs and compliance needs are easily met; this avoids building complex infrastructures supporting data center management that are costly to administer and maintain. * Efficiently and rapidly provision, support, and troubleshoot distributed computing/networking systems in a manner that minimizes down-time, is cost-effective and secure. * Provide easy and complete control for internal or external support personnel to all resources. * Easily manage multi-branded equipment across disjointed data centers and networks all with key stroke logging and auditing for compliance and reporting. * Enable roles-based secure access control that can enforce separation and segregation policies for administrators and scheduled jobs, supporting repeatable and auditable processes that meet compliance needs. * Effectively monitor business continuity facilities to ensure readiness in the event of disaster. * Complete enterprise-class functionality that supports a clustering architecture that enables a flexible centralized command and control management center that is highly scalable and readily available.
For example, an IT administrator can simply manage any infrastructure issues that arise with in-band networking, out-of-band networking, or power cycle from one location and simultaneously manage any components wherever — even if he or she is as remote as a local Starbucks. Xceedium’s GateKeeper provides the authorized professional with the ability to securely access several data centers at the same time from anywhere at anytime.
