Enterprise Grade Central Management
Opengear VCMS is a powerful system that centrally monitors and manages
distributed Opengear products and their managed devices from a single console.
VCMS delivers flexible target device management control for large data centers
with a hundred rows of racks, or in power utility networks with thousands of smart
appliances. Designed to reduce downtime and establish a single point of access,
the VCMS aggregates “call home” sessions from isolated devices initiated
remotely both in-band and out-of-band. The VCMS allows for unified visibility of
all managed devices across large enterprise networks seamlessly from a common
cloud hosted appliance with intuitive browser interface.
Using the VCMS, administrators can access, diagnose and modify any managed
device from any point on the globe, even if the primary network connection to
those devices is impaired. This enables administrators to actively monitor and
swiftly resolve IT infrastructure problems before they a￿ect critical business

Features & Benefits
The Opengear VCMS is a hosted appliance that can monitor and manage thou-
sands of distributed Opengear products and downstream managed
hosts/services. To identify and remedy problems, administrators simply navigate
to the VCMS web UI to be securely authenticated through to the downstream
console server or managed device for troubleshooting, maintenance, reconfigura-
tion or power cycling.
The VCMS ia also equipped with a powerful grouping and searching feature to
allow for arbitrary filtering and selection of Opengear products and managed
devices. This is a powerful attribute-value based system that allows for both
simple grouping and complex searches of your network. This allows rapid and
accurate identification and targeting of devices on large enterprise networks.
Simply install VCMS on a VMWare or Linux KVM virtual machine and enter the
downstream Opengear products to manage. Secure SSH tunnels are automati-
cally set up and the configuration for each console server's managed devices,
users and alerts is downloaded. Or, use the Call Home feature and have remote
sites restricted by firewall rules and VPN’s call outbound to the VCMS using a
secure SSH tunnel.
Like all Opengear solutions, the VCMS is open and extensible. The core Nagios
software is familiar to many systems administrators so it can be custom config-
ured and extended with the thousands of Nagios add-ons.
Reduce on-site service calls and truck rolls for remote site management and
maximize service levels. Monitor, diagnose and resolve infrastructure problems
from anywhere at anytime.
