Lantronix ConsoleFlow Centralised Managment Software
Lantronix ConsoleFlow™ brings In-band Productivity to Out-of-band Networks.
The ConsoleFlow software is Lantronix’s on-premise and cloud-hosted management software that provides centralized management and automated monitoring of all deployed Lantronix Serial Console Managers and connected IT equipment, along with real-time notifications, managed APIs and data visualization dashboards.
A Centralized IT Asset Directory with Instant Search
Through a VPN-free, secure portal, ConsoleFlow provides a centralized directory for accessing console managers and all connected devices in a data centre, development lab or a remote branch office with a simple click. Its powerful search capability allows for quick searches to find console managers and connected IT assets by their names, status, location tags or data fields. Access to your network infrastructure is at your fingertips.
The Game Changing Lantronix SLC8000
The Lantronix SLC8000 serial console manager is available with single or dual power supply for redundancy, dual copper or fibre LAN ports for failover, and the ability to add an LTE modem to be able to always remotely and securely access, manage and control your network infrastructure.
The Lantronix SLC8000 is the only solution on the market designed to future proof your investment. The Lantronix SLC8000 serial console manager uses RJ45 and USB swappable I/O modules to connect and manage all your network infrastructure equipment. This means you can start with as little as an 8 port SLC8000 appliance and add extra modules to achieve up to 48 ports. Today, many leading IT equipment manufacturers (like Cisco, Brocade, Dell, HPE and others) are moving towards launching USB-only based solutions. The Lantronix SLC 8000 is the only industry solution that can support up to 48 high-density USB ports and is compatible with multiple manufacturers’ USB solutions. You can mix the RJ45 and USB modules together for more flexibility when it comes to connecting to different end point devices. You can purchase extra modules as and when you need as your network infrastructure grows with the business. The hot swappable RJ45 and USB I/O modules are available in banks of 16 ports.
The Lantronix SLC8000 serial console manager solution is a real game changer as it has proven to drastically reduce costs. A single 16 port USB or RJ45 swappable I/O module is far more cost effective than purchasing a complete new appliance with 16 ports or more. Other vendors would require you to replace the entire appliance altogether which can be rather expensive. The Lantronix SLC8000 serial console manager can allow up to 48 USB or RJ45 serial console port, or a combination of USB and RJ45 serial console ports. Lantronix allows you to grow your infrastructure organically as your business grows and is ready for tomorrow’s technology as major vendors move from RJ45 to USB serial console management ports. The Lantronix ConsoleFlow management software further enhances the capabilities with HTML5, which means you no longer need to be reliant on Java.
Real-Time Network Performance Monitoring & Alerts
ConsoleFlow’s automated performance monitoring feature helps network engineers identify network issues through built-in and custom probes for monitoring availability of critical network services such as DHCP, DNS and performance metrics such as jitter, and throughput. Rules and alerts allow IT personnel to be alerted through email, SMS, and push notifications. Turn insight into action before issues become incidents.
Aggregation & Data Visualization
ConsoleFlow provides managed REST APIs to aggregate and monitor data from home-grown scripts, tools and other IT assets along-side with data from console managers. Customizable dashboards allow IT personnel to visualize data to spot trends or anomalies. The managed REST APIs also enable integration of ConsoleFlow with existing IT workflows.
ConsoleFlow’s native iOS and Android mobile applications provide users with an added level of convenience for monitoring their IT assets from anywhere, anytime.
Flexible Deployment Options
ConsoleFlow is available as a cloud-based software-as-a-service, and as a virtual appliance for on-premise deployments.
Protecting IT resources is a top priority. The SLC 8000 provides security features such as SSL and SSH for data encryption in addition to remote authentication for integration with other systems already in place. For added protection, the SLC 8000 also includes firewall features to reject connection attempts or block ports and has NIST-certified AES encryption. The SLC 8000 also supports FIPS 140-2 certified mode for government and military applications. With the ConsoleFlow management software, you can rest assured that all your connected network infrastructure will be safe and secure.
