ONPATH's HorizON 2.4 and Gale Technologies' GaleForce 6.1 software together deliver an innovative new approach to managing and provisioning virtual and physical resources in the lab and data center
MARLTON, N.J. - ONPATH Technologies, the leader in scalable connectivity and monitoring solutions for high performance networks, and Gale Technologies, a leading provider of infrastructure automation software solutions that power Infrastructure as a Service for labs, enterprises, and service providers, today announced that they have successfully completed interoperability testing of ONPATH's UCS platform and HorizON 2.4 software with Gale Technologies' GaleForce 6.1 Software release.
This interoperability of the UCS and HorizON 2.4 software with GaleForce 6.1 infrastructure automation and orchestration platform offers customers a comprehensive solution for resource management and provisioning across both physical and virtual environments. It enables them to effortlessly design, locate, schedule, connect, provision, and access all of their virtual and physical resources - including servers, networking, storage, applications, and private and public clouds. This solution can easily scale to accommodate multiple local and remote sites. Intelligent power management capabilities significantly reduce costs as well as carbon footprint.
This powerful combination extends Gale's GaleForce dynamic automated provisioning and de-provisioning software to include ONPATH's Universal Connectivity System (UCS) 3912 switch, the most scalable Layer 1 switch in the market. The UCS 3912 supports up to 576 ports of 1/10G Ethernet, as well as 40G and 100G connectivity. Coupled with ONPATH's HorizON 2.4 management and monitoring software, which delivers authentication, authorization, and auditing security features, port locking and port flapping, and on-demand diagnostics, the UCS 3912 platform delivers the most scalable, flexible, future-proof platform on the market.
GaleForce Software is used to build private and hybrid clouds within enterprise, government, technology vendor, and service provider markets. GaleForce deployments have nearly doubled in the last 4 quarters due in most part to its strong differentiated features of self-service automated provisioning of heterogeneous environments spanning across compute, network, storage, and edge devices. Together with ONPATH's UCS 3912 and HorizON software, the combined solution provides customers with a comprehensive and cost-effective solution to access and orchestrate their physical and virtual resources 24/7 from anywhere in the world. This enables them to save time and reduce capital and operating costs, while improving time-to-value for their IT environments.
"We are seeing increased adoption of this joint solution in both Fortune 500 enterprise and service provider customers", said Scott Powers, Director of Product Marketing at Gale Technologies. "We are transforming the way these companies manage their complex infrastructure by enabling them to automate both virtual and physical server, network, and storage resources - all within a single tool."
"This partnership between Gale Technologies and ONPATH provides customers with a reliable and automated connectivity and management solution", said Gene Litt, VP of Marketing for ONPATH Technologies. "We provide them with simple access and control of the devices within their network, regardless of where those devices are located, enabling them to save time, increase the utilization of existing resources, and reduce costs."
