An Azure-based solution for managing wired, Wi-Fi, and WAN networks from a single dashboard.
Aruba Central is an Azure-based management solution that unifies operations of wired, wireless, WAN, IoT, and VPN infrastructure. As the management and orchestration engine for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), Aruba Central provides a single point of control to oversee and manage every aspect of a customer’s network – branch offices, campuses, data centers, and home offices, as well as the cloud.
Featuring full-stack AIOps, workflow automation, and a rich library of open APIs, Aruba Central dramatically simplifies how network engineers, network administrators, and other IT specialists provision, configure, and maintain corporate networks by enabling them to complete all operations from a single, cloud-native dashboard.
Aruba Central also features robust native security capabilities such as IDS/IPS, policy-based automation, and AI-based profiling of all connected endpoints, and is also interoperable with an extensive ecosystem of leading security partners – enabling customers to augment their security postures without any rip-and-replace of existing solutions.
These capabilities, among others, are instrumental for IT teams who have faced challenges of siloed, domain-specific network management tools, highly manual processes, and a lack of actionable data for troubleshooting and capacity planning purposes. Conversely, by leveraging Aruba Central, customers report a number of benefits such as reduced networking costs, faster troubleshooting, fewer user-impacting incidents, and significant improvements to overall IT efficiency.
Built on a cloud-native, microservices architecture, Aruba Central delivers on enterprise requirements for scale and resiliency, but is also driven by intuitive workflows and dashboards that make it a perfect fit for SMBs with limited IT personnel. So whether customers have one business location or several hundred, IT can spend less time on managing network infrastructure and more time on creating value for the business.
