Eco-System Federation Solution
To gain competitive advantage in today's global market, enterprises face a major development challenge in a vastly disintegrated ecosystem. The product development and manufacturing process no longer involves just one internal team but engages distributed teams from remote locations and other companies within the ecosystem. As a result, each company must effectively collaborate with their partners to ensure time to market. It is crucial for these distributed teams to instantly connect, collaborate, and access computing resources to instantly resolve critical issues without compromising their existing security policy.
For example, in the semiconductor industry, the chip design and production process engages distributed teams at different locations and other eco-system partners, such as IP providers, EDA vendors, fab manufacturing, and packaging house.
This complex, multi-party, multi-location, and mesh interactions between companies require a secure, flexible, and scalable network infrastructure to instantly connect the ecosystem and enable the distributed business processes.
The existing physical network infrastructure inadvertently poses a huge challenge to this dynamic business model. To enable ecosystem business processes, enterprises need to connect via physical networks and open their enterprise network to potential malicious cyber attacks. On the contrary, to minimize security risks, enterprises need to restrict network connectivity which impacts business operation productivity.
A Secure Virtual Network Fabric for Enabling Eco-System Business Processes
Imera solution features an integrated hardware and software infrastructure that builds a secure virtual network fabric over existing enterprise physical network. Imera enables enterprises to take advantage of virtualization across WAN and heavily firewalled environment, where business processes can continue and connect automatically without opening enterprise networks and computing environments, and without threats of trade secret leakage and malicious attacks. Companies within an eco-system can securely connect with each other, collaborate, and integrate their business processes seamlessly.
Imera Virtual Fabric™ features standard rack-mount, plug-and-play appliances that enable easy, instant, and dynamic virtual networking connectivity. Gateway appliance can be deployed at a single site or multiple sites for establishing connectivity. Imera Virtual Fabric instantly and dynamically connects people-to-people, people-to-data, and people-to-infrastructure to maximize enterprise productivity and minimize security risks.
