Pakedge Ships BakPak 3.0

Pakedge Device and Software announces the full release of the 3rd version of the BakPak Cloud Management System, following the limited release back at InfoComm 2015 last month.

The cloud-based management solution provides installers with remote end-to-end control, as well as in-depth network device and control system management. It features prioritised alerts, robust permission settings, automated network repair and mapping, easy configuration management, report logging, backup and restore functionality, and TriPlex-- a trouble shooting the company says determines the cause of problems in case of network outage or configuration errors.

Pakedge claims BakPak 3.0 does not send misleading alerts, since it is intelligent enough to pinpoint the device failures causing network crashes. To do so it validates error alerts through situational-aware AI algorithms to provide accurate usable information in the shape of alerts sent via email, SMS or BakPak app.

Faster Pinpointing of Network Issues

Fujitsu announces a technology to rapidly identify issues within network operations, allowing even non-experts to assess the impact of such failure on virtual systems within all of 10 seconds.

According to the company usually such investigations can take up to 3 hours in the case of large-scale cloud environments.

The Fujitsu technology automatically generates data from communications pathways between servers, as well as the combined data from virtual servers produced by communications. It then analyses the relationship between virtual and physical systems, identifies the impact of a network failure and reports to virtual system users.
