Universal Management Gateway





Universal Management Gateway (UMG)



The Universal Management Gateway appliance is the first data center device that enables true, real-time, integrated monitoring, access and control across IT and facilities systems in the data center. The appliance makes it possible for data centers to execute a unified approach to infrastructure management, resulting in greatly reduced cost and more efficient management and control.

The Universal Management Gateway appliance converges Avocent access and control technologies into a single platform that is massively secure.  Since it secures embedded processors by acting as a gateway between the external network and the system, service processors are no longer directly accessible from the network – reducing risk.

Exclusively, the Universal Management Gateway appliance uses proven technology to deliver a single, unified approach for data center infrastructure management (DCIM). The appliance integrates Digital KVM, Serial Console, Service Processor and environmental management in a single-U platform, enabling customers to experience complete data center access and monitoring. No one can manage and monitor a multi-vendor environment like Vertiv™, and the Universal Management Gateway delivers the broadest service processor support in the industry.
Also, because the Universal Management Gateway can manage up to 1024 service processors through IP or in a tiered switch configuration, one Universal Management Gateway can replace multiple legacy management consoles – resulting in a streamlined administrator experience.
