Awards Season!

By Neal Wilkinson on 24th February, 2017.

The Network Computing Awards

Secura are delighted that our work with our partner, Opengear, has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Network Computing Awards, in the Network Project of the Year (Private Sector) category.

About the Awards

The awards are run by Networking Computing magazine and are now in their 10th year.

This year’s awards will be held at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London on 30th March, and will recognise exceptional achievement and innovation within the networking industry over the past 12 months.

It’s also a great opportunity for friends and colleagues to reconnect and enjoy themselves over drinks and dinner, followed by the awards and the evening’s entertainment (and some potentially suspect dancing later on).

Watch highlights from the 2016 awards below:

The Opengear SmartOOB Project

The Opengear entry to this year’s awards focused around the successful SmartOOB networking project that we completed last year.

Secura worked closely with Opengear to deploy a number of their CM7100 console servers into our data centre sites to enable the out-of-band management of network and server devices within those locations.

It was a hugely successful project for Secura, improving the management efficiency of our data centre infrastructure with remote, low-level access to each of our sites for the team to carry out tasks such as patches, firmware updates and configuration changes, without the need to be physically within the data centre.

Secura CTO, Dan Nichols, commented:

Opengear SmartOOB has been a behind the scenes winner for us. As we continue to grow and potentially look at new data centre sites and overseas opportunities, it will continue to form a valuable part of our infrastructure management toolset.

You can read more about this project on the Opengear website.

A Big Thanks

Finally, a big thank you to our partners Opengear for organising and submitting our project into the awards – we look forward to a great evening and hopefully a win!
