Entreda today announced the availability of the Entreda Unify Platform—the next generation of plug & play, cloud-powered 'headless' appliance innovation for networking, backup, security, and IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) OEMs.
"The cloud-advantaged ‘devices + services’ innovation wave is not confined to tablets and smartphones--It is also enabling exciting new opportunities for appliance OEMs competing in today's high growth converged infrastructure markets,” said Sid Yenamandra, Entreda CEO. "We call this new infrastructure paradigm ‘Appliance 2.0’, and with today's announcement of the Entreda Unify Platform, we are providing appliance OEMs with the ability to build richer, more relevant product families while growing deeper, more intimate relationships with their customers. We are confident that our cloud-powered Appliance 2.0 architecture and customizable feature set will provide our white label partners with the ability to generate new revenue streams while future-proofing their customers' journey to the new world of IT-as-a-service," Yenamandra added.
About the Entreda Unify Platform & Appliance 2.0
The Unify Platform is comprised of 4 customizable service delivery layers including the:
- Appliance 2.0 USM Box Layer: Unified Services Management or USM is Entreda's term to describe a headless, cloud-managed, Intel-based appliance stack providing fully integrated WiFi networking, firewall & VPN services, premise-based backup, and cloud-based disaster recovery for both servers and attached client devices—while fully supporting plug & play auto-installation, auto-updating and continuous QOS monitoring by an OEM.
- Appliance 2.0 HybridSyncTM OS Layer: HybridSyncTM is Entreda's patent-pending cloud-based operating system providing command and control of all USM services in the 'box layer'--while enabling support for cloud-based service add-ons and apps, including built-in 24/7/365 online support. HybridSyncTM can be hosted in the AWS cloud, or customized to support the OEM's cloud or NOC environment of choice.
- Appliance 2.0 ITaaS UX Layer: The 'consumerization of IT' has impacted the way business users (in both enterprise and SMB markets) interact with complex systems—raising the bar for appliance OEMs. The Entreda Unify Platform incorporates an icon-rich, easy-to-navigate, 'IT-as-a-service' (ITaaS) user experience and administration layer with multi-role console support for users, OEM network operators, and OEM channel partners.
- Appliance 2.0 Endpoint Layer: The Entreda Unify Platform enables easy provisioning of user endpoints (PCs, servers, etc.) for secure, permissioned use of backup, networking, VPN, cloud, and other appliance-based services via the Unify Applet (or endpoint layer). The Unify Platform endpoint layer also provides intelligent, non-disruptive collection of user analytics, IT inventory/assets, support information and more, enabling OEMs to build data-driven relationships with their customers.
