<ul><li>Business coming to a standstill? </li></ul>Corporate HQ.. Inevitably, the call comes in at 5.50pm: problems at a remote branch office. The applications are not responding. The problem has caused all transactions to cease. Branch office personnel unable to explain the issues for IT team. The server is pingable , network seems OK but isn't answering connection requests. IT team is not able to ascertain the source of the problem. Administrator to embark on a 100-mile round-trip to fix the problem. Sounds familiar?
<ul><li>Challenges ahead </li></ul>New challenges for businesses originate from their dependence on networks to deliver complex applications over the Internet, to highly distributed end-users. Enterprises use a number of point products that address specific needs. But the introduction of multiple products into the network infrastructure increases management complexity, degrades application performance, and increases operational cost.
<ul><li>Networks built like a castle of cards! </li></ul>A network in a branch office today has multiple discrete network devices—modems, firewalls, routers, intrusion detection/prevention systems, VPNs, voice devices, and application accelerators. The cascaded devices result in fragile networks that are prone to failures, due to poor understanding of dependencies and the complexity of configurations. The problems are further compounded when the capabilities of various point products are nullified by the encrypted traffic.
<ul><li>Juggling with issues </li></ul>Networking devices are from multiple vendors and are never designed to tightly integrate with each other. They have different management interfaces which makes it necessary for the IT staff to manually configure each individual device and ensure configuration consistency across them. Add to this, is the difficulty in troubleshooting and fixing a problem.
<ul><li>The network does not scale! </li></ul>Adding a new branch usually is a major task since multiple devices require complex installations and configurations. Rolling out new applications is difficult as individual elements have to be re-configured to get applications run efficiently. In addition, the IT staff invariably need to handle conflicts among versions of installed software
<ul><li>Imprisoned by proprietary operating systems </li></ul>The current breed of network devices run proprietary operating systems and software which leaves no room for adaptability and customization. In an era where applications and technologies are updated continuously, these systems restrict users severely.
<ul><li>Balancing costs and reliability a tightrope walk </li></ul>Deploying and managing devices in a branch office is a formidable task. Experts are needed for each device from each vendor. Added to that is the frustration of managing multiple support contracts and coordinating support tickets among various vendors. Failures affect productivity and eventually leading to a higher Total Cost of Ownership.
<ul><li>? </li></ul>Application delivery to branch offices is critical to extend the reach of the enterprise. However, the current breed of networking devices do not guarantee an optimized application delivery. At every enterprise, IT staff are forced to manage disparate and closed network environments. At the same time, there is a shortage of professionals who can manage the IT infrastructure and help business growth. These paradoxes can only be addressed by a new class of equipment rather than existing equipment on the market today.
ENPAQ is a application access solution for branch offices, ensuring optimized application delivery across the WAN. ENPAQ supports a ‘server-less’ branch architecture, providing the availability, performance and security needed to work with distributed applications at remote sites, while reducing TCO for enhanced productivity and dramatically reduced overhead. Purpose built
ENPAQs ensure safe application delivery across the broadest range of applications. They are available in a range of sizes to ensure that each of your offices has a properly sized application delivery appliance. With this range of sizes, you can simultaneously ensure that the appliance provides room for office growth, yet still ensures that you achieve a quick return on investment. Built to scale with the business needs
<ul><li>Uniform and secure environment to host applications of choice </li></ul>Rather than deploying productivity tools on a separate server, the ENPAQ with pre-installed applications ensures that they are being run in a known environment. This minimizes installation time and reduces technical support problems. It can support Windows-based applications or a Linux service, with choice of processor/memory options based on the application needs. ENPAQ’s extensible architecture allows large external storage to be added as well.
ENPAQ is built with best-in-class network capabilities enabled by open source software and it’s unique management framework. Elina’s open architecture allows customization of services as per requirements of an enterprise, enabling a number of new and innovative solutions to be deployed and managed on the same platform. ENPAQ’s management framework with standard interfaces, also ensures that software components from different vendors work together smoothly and securely. Freedom to customize, enabled by Open Architecture
VirtualPresence, bundled with ENPAQs, ensures that organizations can take full advantage of the enhanced features and functionality of Elina’s distributed management architecture. VirtualPresence has been built with the philosophy of “ M onitor , M easure, and C ontrol” for the network and IT infrastructure. It allows a network administrator to receive alarms and proactive alerts, anywhere anytime. Comprehensive remote management capabilities
New demands of enterprises originate from their dependence on efficient applications to facilitate communication between employees, customers, prospects, and business partners. IP-PBX, WAFS, Instant Messaging and Collaboration and email are some of the applications that are bundled on the ENPAQ. Elina Networks’ application delivery network architecture provides a balance of security, performance, availability, and management. It delivers a network infrastructure on which distributed enterprises can transact their businesses, keeping pace with advances in technology and applications. The complete spectrum
