Description: Mellanox UFM-SDN Appliance 250 - Network management device - 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 100 Gigabit InfiniBand - 1U - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: MUA9402E-2SF-250
UFM-SDN (Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) for Software Defined Networks) Appliance enables data center operators to efficiently provision, monitor and operate compute and storage large-scale data center interconnect infrastructures.
UFM eliminates the complexity of fabric management, provides deep visibility into traffic and optimizes fabric performance. The UFM-SDN Appliance form factor delivers these capabilities as out-the-box functionality, reducing the hassle involved with server management, software installation, and operating system dependability.
- Reduces complexity of fabric management
- Provides in-depth visibility into traffic and health information
- Eliminates fabric congestion and hot Spots
- Supports SDN programmable fabrics
- Generates preventive maintenance and "soft degradation" alerts
- Quickly troubleshoots any connectivity problem
- Integrates and streamlines fabric information into your IT systems
- Delivers an out-of-the box, O/S agnostic experience
- Scale-out fabric management with Unified Fabric Manager
Today's data centers require advanced management platforms that help maximize the utilization of the underlying infrastructure, and optimize the health and performance of the applications running on it. UFM eliminates the complexity that traditionally comes with fabric management. It provides deep visibility into fabric traffic and health and makes the needed correlation between the fabric and the services it provides. The UFM-SDN Appliance form factor delivers these capabilities as out-the-box functionality, reducing the hassle involved with server management, software installation, and operating system dependability.
- Fabric visibility and control
UFM includes an advanced granular monitoring engine that provides real time access to health and performance, switch and host data, enabling: real-time identification of fabric-related errors and failures, insight into fabric performance and potential bottlenecks, preventive maintenance via granular threshold-based alerts, SNMP traps and scriptable actions and correlation of monitored data to application/service level enabling quick and effective fabric analysis.
- Solve traffic bottlenecks
Fabric congestion is difficult to detect when using traditional management tools, resulting in unnoticed congestion and fabric underutilization. UFM's unique congestion tracking feature quickly identifies traffic bottlenecks and congestion events spreading over the fabric. This feature enables accurate problem identification and quick resolution of performance issues.
- Ease fabric deployment and operations
UFM's central management console reduces the effort and complexity involved with bringup and with day-by-day fabric maintenance tasks. This significantly lowers downtime and makes UFM the ultimate management tool for the most demanding data center environments.
- The SDN approach
While other tools are device-oriented and involve local device logic, UFM uses SDN architecture together with a service oriented approach to manage the fabric.
- Integration with existing data center management tools
UFM provides an open and extensible object model to describe data center infrastructure and conduct all relevant management actions. UFM's API enables integration with leading job schedulers, cloud and cluster managers.
