The racksnet® software includes all functions for an easy, fast and secure network automation.
You enter your network configuration settings and automation data simply by drag & drop on the clearly structured user interface on the whiteboard. We take care of the rest. Because all parameters and operations run in the secure environment of the cloud.
Regardless of the network and device structure of your company, whether it includes devices from Cisco, DELL EMC, Hewlett Packard or Huawei – the graphical user interface is the same for all devices. The racksnet® software works with all major manufacturers.
The Config Manager is your control center within the racksnet® software.
The functions of the Config Manager can be found on the whiteboard.
Here you can edit, plan and design both existing and new, additional network infrastructures, provide net resources, document and archive or automate all your network tasks.
Simply by Drag & Drop. Vendor-independent and cloud-based.
Higher security for your network.
The racksnet® automation software supports you in documenting your IT infrastructure – automatically e.g. with every device configuration using the practical before and after comparison mode.
Every change can be viewed, documented and archived in the before and after mode.
Monitors the operational status of your local IT networks and automatically reports congested or critical conditions or changes within your network infrastructure to a stored contact address of your choice.
Provides a complete overview of non-functioning devices and locations, including all configuration details
Ensures that the devices of one manufacturer in your network behave (can be configured) as if they were devices of another manufacturer and vice versa.
This technology eliminates the need for companies to employ additional certified specialists and opens up new possibilities regarding the hardware infrastructure.
Enables you to quickly and easily clone complete network infrastructures (including existing racks, routers, switches, etc. and all device settings) and automations via drag and drop
Ensures the error-free transfer of successful network environments to other locations
After installing the racksnet® vController, the inventory locator provides you with a CSV-File of all network devices found in the company network including vendor, device type/series, serial number, IP address, firmware version
You get a quick and easy up-to-date overview of your entire IT network.
The API also allows you to connect 3rd party applications such as security, ticketing or UC solutions with the numerous advantages of network automation.
Increases the spectrum of your network automation to a content-based application level (software).
The top-of-the-rack switch offers you a complete insight into your existing rack structure (incl. servers, storages etc.) and allows you to conveniently assign and release ports of the devices installed in it.
Quick overview of devices and their use in complex environments, as they often occur at a location.
Application Scenarios / Use Cases
Case: Company acquisition & integration of IT into existing compliance
Problem: Different hardware suppliers at HQ and new branch. Harmonization of the IT infrastructure requires cost-intensive specialists and procedures.
Solution: racksnet® works vendor-independently and can, if desired, operate several network manufacturers in parallel or can be optionally adapted by migration to the manufacturer already in use at headquarters. The use of expensive specialists is no longer necessary and the implementation period is significantly shortened.
Case: Provision of IT resources, e.g. for new business areas or departments
Problem: Employees of a new business unit need online connection for VoIP and workstations as soon as possible. Special guidelines for cyber security apply here.
Solution: The racksnet® API can also be used to automate a UC application already in use in the company. This process now only takes a few minutes for around 200 workstations instead of several days* as was previously the case.
Case: Simplification and automation of network tasks in the data center
Problem: Increasingly complex network requirements make it more and more difficult to control operating states, and the possibilities for automation are hardly exploited.
Solution: Improved network visibility, cross-vendor automation and faster rollout of network-connected applications and storage.
