Cloud-Based EMS Deployments Made Easy

Key Highlights of NetMan's Multi-Tenant Architecture
With multi-tenancy, a single image of NetMan is hosted in the cloud which can be shared by multiple customers ("tenants") of the device manufacturer. As shown in the picture, although many customers such as "ABC", "XYZ", and "LMN" of the device manufacturer are sharing the same image of NetMan that is hosted in the cloud of the device manufacturer, the networks of the customers are fully isolated from one another and the interaction between the administrators and their networks is fully secure.
NetMan's multi-tenancy feature allows device manufacturers to cater to smaller customers who don't have the resources to invest in a management system by offering it as a service with very low upfront investment costs. This approach also provides the device manufacturer with a continuous revenue stream. With multi-tenancy, the device manufacturer can easily deploy new features that is added to their management system and also institute different subscription levels.
