Mellanox Technologies Chooses Entuity for a New Level of Network Insights and Management
总部设在森尼维尔, 加州和Yokneam, 以色列, Mellanox was founded in 1999 and is a leading developer/manufacturer of sophisticated end-to-end networking technologies, 包括适配器, 开关, 和电缆. Mellanox knows the value of operational efficiency as their products are designed to provide the highest throughput and lowest 延迟 delivering data faster to applications for unparalleled performance. 随着对他们产品需求的增长, keeping the expanding Mellanox global network operating efficiently was becoming challenging. The Mellanox IT organization realized that their original set of distinct network management tools was not answering all their needs going forward.
- 1900 +员工
- 25+ facilities including office buildings, laboratories and fabrication centers
- 实体网络管理，支持BMC TrueSight操作管理
Preparing for the future Mellanox needed to guarantee an improved end-user experience and acquire a network management solution flexible enough to easily support their expanding global enterprise with network devices located in various locations: production networks, 实验室, 办公室和生产基地. Other key areas that were necessary for the new network management system included:
- Proactively preventing networking events before they escalated into real issues
- Optimizing network performance through a deeper visibility into the network and its devices
An extensive evaluation program was set up to fully explore which network management solution would best fit Mellanox. It was determined that after five products were tested–a large legacy platform, 一体化网管解决方案, 特定于供应商的应用程序, MRTG分析仪和Entuity, Entuity network management expertly met all the prerequisites set by the IT organization.
一体机, 综合设计, Entuity equipped Mellanox with the capabilities necessary to effectively manage over 1500 of their network devices to achieve their goals. 例如, IT can now easily keep track of network devices’ keys measurements status (CPU utilization, 延迟, 平均SNMP响应, reachability metrics/history) for maintaining high levels of performance. This visibility allows early detection of problematic areas for proactive resolution.
Additional metrics are now being used to measure real-time port utilization data, 以及, generating automatic reports that compare the data over time for accurate analysis. This information illustrates where and when there are bottlenecks and can also help effectively build out their network as the company grows.
An accurate representation of the network was also a vital requirement. Entuity的持续, 自动发现功能使其拓扑映射保持最新状态, 几乎不需要IT团队的努力. Mellanox, 你们可以想象, uses their own 开关 on their network and Entuity quickly added them to the products supported device list so that all Mellanox 开关 were immediately able to be taken under management. “Real-time topology maps have been very effective for us to understand were and how dependencies are found. This of course makes our job easier when it comes to responding and resolving events and has reduced the time spent searching for root cause details by almost 30%,阿马尔说, Mellanox的网络工程师.
“We considered a number of alternatives to improve our management of the Mellanox network. The test evaluations clearly showed that Entuity 网络管理 would best meet our requirements for enhanced network management, 报告功能, 供应商支持, 无限的可伸缩性和企业级功能.——Maor Amar, Mellanox的网络工程师.
随着IT团队对Entuity产品越来越熟悉, it was apparent that standardizing on an all-in-one network management solution delivers operational excellence through:
- Reduction of staff time spent managing the software increasing operational efficiency (no more data silos or multiple products to manage separately)
- Improved network visibility allowing for efficiency and effectiveness of managing constantly evolving and growing network infrastructure
- Lowers TCO and increases ROI–a streamlined automated solution reduces incidents, 数据中断和相关成本
“Mellanox can now effortlessly plan and enable future growth of our network and IT services. We will continue to capitalize on Entuity’s expertise in managing heterogeneous networks to optimize out IT infrastructure and provide outstanding application performance of our entire organization,Maor说。. “We re pleased with the results to date and look forward to taking advantage of more specialized capabilities within Entuity in the coming months.”
