Why network resilience requires Isolated Management Infrastructure

This post was originally published on ZPE Systems

Summary

Business relies on network resilience. But network management now requires more than a ‘break/fix’ approach. Decentralized and growing architectures are spread across cloud, premises, and large IoT footprints. For shrinking IT teams, this presents resilience problems, as many are unaware of the best practice to help them care for their vast digital estate, maintain complex and delicate architecture, and recover quickly in case of attack. This gap means the network is a source of anxiety.

Big Tech solved these problems 10+ years ago, by doubling down on their management architectures. This best practice, which is now recommended by CISA, involves fully separating management networks from production networks into what’s called Isolated Management Infrastructure. IMI goes far beyond serial console and out-of-band access, providing the management and service delivery capabilities teams need to reduce on-site upkeep, stabilize delicate architecture, and accelerate ransomware recovery.

Big Tech’s network resilience secret lies in ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid hardware and software. Nodegrid is the only network resilience platform, delivering the Gen 3 capabilities that are required to build IMI. Now, organizations in every industry benefit from the best practices that have been trusted to run the public cloud
