Nodegrid Manager ™

All Your IT Assets, One Dashboard.

Nodegrid Makes IT Simple. Manage all of your IT assets and devices, regardless of vendor, under a single, unified management platform. Simplify administration with normalized controls and commands. Nodegrid Manager provides you with a unified solution to control compute, network, storage and smart power assets.

 

Overview

Your world is a mix of physical and virtual devices, legacy and bleeding edge. You’ve got numerous vendors, asset types and console protocols to manage. Nodegrid Manager provides you with a unified solution to control compute, network, storage and smart power assets.

  • Our smart, consolidated IT access and control software saves you time, money and effort managing multi-vendor IT environments.
  • Nodegrid’s vendor-neutral platform frees you from vendor lock-in, providing IT device purchasing flexibility and a comprehensive, uniform feature stack across vendors.
  • Nodegrid Manager simplifies management, migration and refresh experiences, and even extends the features and shelf life of unsupported legacy devices.

 

Features

Nodegrid Manager simplifies data center IT infrastructure management for network engineers and system administrators by consolidating access and control of IT devices into a single interface. Nodegrid Manager provides secure, centralized out-of-band management of remote IT devices. Nodegrid Manager’s smart, consolidated interface significantly speeds up access times and reduces training costs and MTTR when used together with existing serial console servers, service processors, PDUs, UPSs and KVM/IP devices.

  • Single screen access and control experience of physical and virtual (VMware, KVM, assets)
  • Software-defined infrastructure for quick and easy infrastructure deployment
  • Vendor neutral support for all IT asset types and console protocols
  • Slash CAPEX/OPEX, secure KVM-over-IP and IPMI tools, use commodity hardware, cut training time and costs
  • Save time with policy-based discovery and management
  • Keeps firewalls secure
  • All in one. Installs from a bootable ISO, no other software required
  • Easy day-zero provisioning
  • Vendor and Technology Agnostic – Avocent, Raritan, APC, Cisco, NetApp, HP iLO, Dell iDRAC, Redfish and more
  • Physical and Virtual Consoles – RS-232 Serial, VMware MKS & Serial, KVM-over-IP, SSH and more
  • Flexible Access – mobile, tablet or desktop, CLI, API, search bar, bookmarks and more

 

Save Time with Normalized Commands

Engineers no longer need to know vendor specific commands. Simply perform a request at a click of a button. Our Interface Abstraction Layer means your “Power Off” command (Ctrl + P or Power Off) will be received, no matter the vendor. Command Line or Web GUI, it doesn’t matter. Nodegrid makes things easy.
