Network management

Reduce infrastructure maintenance costs by automating network deployment, configuration, and maintenance activities.

All information and commands for managing networks are collected in one interface: you do not need to keep records of IP addresses in Excel, install special software to work with each type of equipment, manually write commands on the switch.

In the control platform, any employee can execute basic commands in a couple of clicks: disable the port if it is under DDOS attack, or reduce the speed. There is no need to follow a certain sequence of commands. This reduces the probability of error and increases the administration speed.

Managing network equipment in DCImanager

DCImanager allows you to manage network equipment directly from the platform. You can use it to manage switches: connect them to the device ports, monitor the status, change the speed and mode of the port, save port configurations, etc.

Managing network equipment in VMmanager

VMmanager automates routine operations with the network interfaces of virtual machines "under the hood". For example, when you create a custom image of your virtual machine, the platform will automatically "depersonalize" the network settings on it to avoid future conflicts of settings.

You do not need to manually configure the parameters directly on the virtual machine. VMmanager will assign the IP address, mask and gateway, change them, add alias or remove the address from the interface – just in a couple of clicks.

VLAN management in DCImanager

DCImanager allows you to manage virtual networks (VLAN) directly from the interface. Using VLAN increases the security of your network:

  • Servers located in different VLANs are isolated from each other.
  • The network load is reduced as it is possible to divide the broadcast traffic flow into several VLANs.

Through the platform interface, you can create VLAN on switch ports, enable and disable Trunk mode, assign Native VLAN.

IPv4 and IPv6 addresses management

ISPsystem platforms allow managing already configured physical networks and combining IP addresses into logical entities – pools. This makes it possible, for example, to divide the address blocks into public and private, to allow only necessary blocks to be used in certain clusters or racks, to reserve certain groups of IP addresses for special tasks. The administrator can easily determine how many addresses on the network are free, how many and by what equipment are occupied.

Using ISPsystem platforms, you can assign IP addresses to servers manually or automatically during OS installation. This saves the administrators’ time and simplifies the administration process, especially when managing large amounts of equipment.
