Oneface™ Windows System Manager
The nAppliance Oneface™ Management System provides a pre-integrated management system for any sized appliance implementation from a single appliance installation to a distributed enterprise with any number of systems. Oneface™ is Microsoft Windows MMC 2.0 based. This makes Oneface™ completely compatible with the Microsoft Management infrastructure and extendable with other Microsoft MMC snap-ins.
The nAppliance OneFace™ Management System central console is a centralized management dashboard that can manage one or more local or remote appliances. The console manages the configuration, upgrades, monitoring and management of each appliance from a central location. Oneface™ can also plug directly into Enterprise SNMP management systems such as HP Openview or Microsoft Systems Center.
The OneFace™ Windows System Management Console has a rich and robust set of features including:
High Availability and Fault Tolerance Manager – Oneface™ provides support and management for Microsoft clustering and for the nAppliance proprietary and inexpensive Fault Tolerant “Warm Standby” technology. The Warm Standby technology provides an automated active/passive technology, where the active system is replicated to a redundant hardware appliance. This provides for a redundant and secure fault tolerant system without the costs associated with purchasing multiple licenses in active-active configurations.
Backup Manager – Several backup options are available to provide Point-in-Time snapshot backups of the entire appliance system, either internally to the appliance, or to remote network servers. The backup snapshots provide guaranteed disaster plan contingencies or for simple roll-backs of system configurations to a “Last Known Good State”.
Embedded System Manager (ARRMS) – The Embedded System Manager works in conjunction with the Backup Manager to provide offline recovery and snapshot roll-back services. This system provides full access to the hardware and software components by a remote administrator.
Security Manager – Each appliance runs internal monitoring systems to remove the possibilities of security vulnerabilities due to configuration or other security compromises.
Component Manager – nAppliance products have numerous 3rd party integrated software add-ons which greatly extend the capabilities of each appliance. These add-ons include QOS, content management, WAN Optimization, reporting and many other components. The Component Manager allows the customer to add or remove components as desired.
Update Manager – The Update Manager provides ongoing monitoring of new software patch releases and provides an integrated patch management system for the entire appliance from drivers, OS to all installed application systems.
Configuration Manager – The Configuration Manager allows the administrator to manage one or more appliance configurations including network, operating system and operational configurations from a central management station.
SNMP Agents – the nAppliance integrated SNMP agent plugs directly into SNMP or SYSLOG management systems using standard protocols used to manage Enterprise Class servers and network devices.
Lightweight Enterprise Manager – nAppliance provides an SNMP network management system pre-integrated with the hardware, operating system and application products. This provides a turnkey management dashboard out-of-the-box.
nAppliance Oneface Management System integrates hardware and software management into a cohesive management system. This provides a integrated Enterprise Class management system without enterprise cost and staffing requirements.
