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.

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.
