Cloud-enabled Networking for the Enterprise
Aerohive Solutions by Use Case
The cloud offers a lot of advantages. It enables enterprises to increase capacity without having to make capital investments in additional servers, storage, and networking infrastructure. It provides flexibility and scale, helping enterprises increase the utility of their resources, expand their reach, and reliably support users around the world.
Benefits of a cloud-enabled approach:
- Lower point of entry – moves capex to opex
- Automatic upgrades, backup, and simple provisioning
- Green - requires no rack space or power consumption
- Inherent high-reliability (resilient data centers)
- Easier and faster support – can manage from anywhere
- Start small and expand granularly
Aerohive Cloud Services, including HiveManager Online, is a cloud-enabled enterprise management solution that provides all the features and functionality of a behind-the-firewall network management system (NMS) without the installation, operation, and maintenance associated with a dedicated management server and at dramatically lower cost. Unlike alternative solutions, failures in the WAN link or cloud-deployed controller (for Wi-Fi), do not impact the ongoing operation of the LAN or WLAN. This is because data does not go to the cloud, and control or policy enforcement functions (authentication, roaming, and QoS) are not carried out in the cloud. Together with an intelligent distributed network architecture and state-of-the-art 802.11n access points and VPN routers, Aerohive provides a cloud-enabled networking solution that is the simplest, most reliable, most flexible, most scalable, and most cost effective in the industry.
Our Cloud or Yours?
Unique to the industry, Aerohive's HiveManager NMS can also be deployed on-premise, in your own virtualized datacenter infrastructure. This approach allows you to get many of the benefits of HiveManager Online, in your own infrastructure. You can even use Aerohive's public infrastructure to simplify access point provisioning, while still hosting HiveManager on-premise, and you can migrate between online and on-premise at any stage of your deployment.
