Industry’s ever-increasing demands for scalability in today’s data centers is commonly achieved through horizontal scale-out solutions, resulting in the utilization of large quantities of network nodes. Such a usage model requires the traditional enterprise platforms to be managed by a new automatable approach. Edgcore’s Data Importer, based on Edgecore OLT implementation for REDFISH API, introduces a scalable, highly portable, and fully automatable support for device information and configuration. By using the industry standard Redfish APIs, Edgecore Data Importer provides the necessary data to analyze and detect possible future device health or out of state issues, enabling management and monitoring functionality for the entire infrastructure (including networking, storage, server).
