GMS provides IT managers with all of the tools necessary to centrally configure, monitor, and manage a Silver Peak-enabled Wide Area Network (WAN). 


GMS ensures fast and accurate configuration of Silver Peak NX, VX and VRX appliances.  New appliances can be pre-provisioned prior to shipping and then automatically discovered and registered using the GMS platform.  In addition, Silver Peak provides an automated deployment wizard to assist with the configuration of these devices.  Enterprise-wide policies (e.g., Access Control Lists and bandwidth contracts) can be created and applied using customized templates within GMS, ensuring consistent configuration across numerous Silver Peak appliances, regardless of location.Rapid deployment of Silver Peak appliances

Simplified device management

GMS facilitates day-to-day administrative tasks across an entire distributed network of Silver Peak appliances.  This includes scheduled configuration backups, automatic software updates, and other vital device management functions.  In addition, GMS can be used to drill down into individual appliances for specific configuration, monitoring, and management tasks.

Centralized network monitoring

GMS provides a single, centralized “launch point” for monitoring a Silver Peak-enabled WAN.  This includes easy to use dashboards that provide essential real-time information, such as device status and usage statistics, WAN metrics, and alarms.  Automatic email notifications ensure that IT staff are always in the loop – facilitating day-to-day performance monitoring and ensuring that faults are always isolated and resolved in a timely and cost effective manner.

Extensive reporting capabilities

GMS provides extensive reporting capabilities that assist with capacity management, network planning, auditing, troubleshooting, ROI analysis, and SLA enforcement.  Both real-time and historical reports are available, including traffic statistics (data reduction, TCP flow counts, latency/loss characteristics, bandwidth allocation), application behavior (top ten applications, bandwidth allocation per application), and alarms.  This information can be exported from GMS for easy manipulation and long term storage.

Secure access

GMS offers different levels of user access that provide varying degrees of read and write privileges.  Support for TACACS+ and RADIUS ensures easy integration with existing authentication systems. 

A Web interface (using HTTPS) ensures seamless and secure access to the GMS platform from virtually any location.

Flexible deployment options

GMS comes as a standalone network appliance (with an integrated SQL database), or as a virtual appliance that runs on industry standard servers. Both platforms are easy to setup and maintain, and provide GMS' full range of monitoring, reporting, and administrative functions.
