Very easy management with good stability and very responsive technical support

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used generally for network device management, like switches, routers, and other kinds of appliances. We also use it for things like network access control solutions, which are incorporated into this management solution and networking traffic analytic solutions. It is a combined solution, it's not only used for the device management and configuration but also for things like network control and application analytics.

Pros and Cons

  • "The best thing about the solution is that it is all managed from just a single application window. We call this feature a single pane of glass due to the fact that almost all the features are all managed within a single application, or a browser, to be more specific."
  • "Some features are quite difficult to configure and they are very complicated to figure out. Maybe the vendors should introduce a more driven configuration that can clarify the processes a bit more to make the processes more clearly defined."

What other advice do I have?

We're an Xtreme partner and we sell the solutions to our customers. I would strongly suggest other companies at least try to use the solution. You can ask any partner of Xtreme to run a demo of this management product. It will give you a good sense of what to expect. One thing that I would mention is that you can operate the solution not only with Xtreme's equipment but with many other vendors like Cisco or HP. It's great. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's almost perfect as a product. We really enjoy using it.

Increases efficiency and reduces costs through remote configuration and management

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is to manage our Extreme switches. We also assist customers with the integration of this product.

Pros and Cons

  • "I need fewer people to do implementation and support, and I don't have to go on-site to change the configuration or otherwise support the switch."
  • "It would be helpful if this solution had support for configuring and managing third-party hardware devices."

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good solution that can really help you to manage and reduce your costs. You only need to have one skillset, as opposed to multiple skillsets. It is a very attractive solution from both a technical and a cost standpoint. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
