"75% of our IT work is just routine maintenance. It doesn't leave much time for strategy."
The majority of an enterprise IT staff’s time is spent maintaining and making changes to the network and its underlying IT infrastructure. Routine tasks like patches, password resets, and configuration changes are ripe for automation, but remain largely manual, time-consuming and costly. Often necessary changes like OS upgrades are delayed because some changes will fail, leading to costly system downtime while someone tries to figure out which change failed, why it failed and how to restore service.
Uplogix provides proactive maintenance capabilities to expedite changes, dramatically reduce labor resources required and minimize the risks of manual errors. Uplogix ARM appliances allow customers to selectively choose which maintenance activities to automate and to what degree—while providing a built-in safety net to quickly recover from any failed changes. This specialized backup ensures that automated changes can be trusted to execute without damaging production environments.
Key Proactive Maintenance Capabilities
The Uplogix Automated Remote Management platform enables IT staff to drastically reduce the time, expense and risk of manually maintaining a distributed IT infrastructure:
- Reduces operational burden and costs so IT staff can spend more time on innovation and less on ongoing maintenance. Mass configuration changes can be scheduled in the Uplogix Control Center and executed consistently by the Uplogix appliances on the network, rather than updating each router, switch or server one by one.
- Protects network availability and uptime by making changes locally—not over the network—and instantly rolling back devices to last known good state if a change fails
- Simplifies remote management by minimizing routine, repetitive tasks that must be performed regularly and often require a site visit such as OS upgrades, configuration and policy changes and password updates
- Increases efficiencies and reduces risks by executing maintenance operations consistently and securely every time according to best practices, or customer-defined standards and procedures
