Dallas, Texas – (The Hosting News) – February 17, 2006 – SoftLayer Technologies, a dedicated hosting provider has announced the integration of IPMI 2.0 Server Management with their proprietary management portal.
Nathan Day, Chief Technology Officer of SoftLayer Technologies, ”With the addition of IPMI 2.0, available through SoftLayer’s Private network, customers now have multiple paths to manage their environment.”
According to Mr. Day, the SoftLayer management portal was designed to be modular in nature with the ability to quickly and seamlessly adapt to continuous technology changes. With the newly added IPMI 2.0, customers now have access to key features including, remote reboot, remote console, server monitoring, and granular reporting.
Mr. Day continued, ”Our primary job is to focus on the customer interface or window into the IT environment. We do not design or write operating systems, control panels, security systems, firewalls, databases, or many of the other technologies we deploy. But we do combine them in order to create an easy-to-use management system.”
he SoftLayer customer portal also serves as the launching point for service delivery, reporting, management, and control, allowing total management of the network, hardware, software, and applications. The portal offers additional value-added services, providing control to other existing SoftLayer methodologies such as the network-within-the-network approach, and true out-of-band access via SSL VPN.
Included in all of SoftLayer’s service offerings, the customer portal also provides billing information, user administration, advanced resolution system, new service ordering, change management, and historical information for trending analysis.
Mr. Day added, ”When it comes to the management of their servers, we didn’t want our customers to simply have any tools and resources, we want them to have the best. Through constant evaluation of our offerings, we are focused on providing services that meet and exceed our customer’s expectations. Adding IPMI 2.0 is one more step towards that goal.”
