Aerohive Networks has introduced an on-premises version of its HiveManager Cloud-based network management platform. The Next Generation (HiveManager NG) comes with several new features for troubleshooting, reporting, monitoring, backup, and feedback.
Aerohive said it has broadened the deployment options for HiveManager NG to include both public cloud and on-premises deployment. HiveManager NG Virtual Appliance, the on-premises option, has been added to enable customers to choose the deployment that’s right for them.
Now customers can deploy networks with on-premises management that has the ease of management and functionality of a cloud solution, according to the company. In addition, customers will be able to change deployment methods as their needs change.
The new HiveManager NG features include:
• Enhanced reporting, with the ability to share reports with an HTML link that can be accessed from any device
• Enriched Helpdesk Troubleshooting, with role-based access control and guided troubleshooting tips
• Updated security, with added rogue AP and client visibility.
HiveManager NG Virtual Appliance is available today. It requires the purchase of 1, 3, or 5 year support contracts, a perpetual license fee per access point, and a 1, 3, or 5 year support contract per access point.
“Aerohive is continuing to lead the industry with this newest HiveManager NG deployment option,” said David Greene, chief marketing officer, Aerohive. “By offering public and on-premises solutions, we put the power into the hands of the customer to choose the deployment method that works for their situation. Regardless of public or on-premises management, organisations are now able to have the same simple, secure, and scalable wireless solution.”
"By offering an on-premises version of HiveManager NG in addition to the cloud-based version, Aerohive gives customers a choice in deployment models that best fit their needs,” said Matthias Machowinski, research director, IHS. "As an added bonus, Aerohive’s flexible licensing model allows customers to change as their needs evolve."
