ihiji Network Management as-a-Service Platform Created for IT Professionals Now in Private Beta

Austin, TX – April 27, 2012 – ihiji announces today that the company is in private beta with a next generation platform for Network Management as-a-Service (NMaaS), created for IT Professionals and VARs (Value Added Resellers). Based on the same cloud-based architecture as the Company’s award-winning residential Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) product, ihiji invision, the Network Management solution lowers a company’s capital and operating expenditures, increases productivity, and improves profit margins by minimizing equipment and network outages.

ihiji’s NMaaS platform provides real and effective management solutions. When in use, IT Professionals receive alerts regarding equipment status, making it easier than ever to remotely manage installations and reduce the time taken to isolate and repair issues with network-connected devices. The initial setup is simple and requires only a single low cost network appliance at each location. Subsequent configuration and management can be done remotely using tools within ihiji’s cloud-based portal, including remote access to the site without the need for a VPN connection. Once deployed at the client site, the ihiji appliance securely communicates system health and status data through the portal to the VAR in real-time. With analytics readily available, the VAR can identify the cause or source of issues faster and resolve them more efficiently, often without the added cost or requirement of sending a service technician to the site.

The ihiji solution is both practical and versatile. It is ideal for IT VARs that service Small to Medium Businesses (SMBs), IT organizations who manage a large number of remote branch locations, and, for those instances where a traditional server-based Remote Monitoring and Management tool is not practical due to requirements, scope, or budgetary constraints. “Often times the full toolset provided by a typical RMM solution is more complex than what is needed at a small or medium business or branch location which typically only requires network management and basic server information,” says ihiji VP of technical operations Michael Maniscalco. “The ihiji solution is a cost effective and powerful option that can fill the void within many Managed Service Providers’ (MSPs) offerings. In fact, our scalable platform can be used in tandem with traditional RMM software for installations which require more robust server or workstation management.”

ihiji’s cost effective network management solution enables a business to evolve, progressively moving to more efficient and effective cloud-based services. The low-cost appliance makes multiple site support possible without the added expense of numerous dedicated servers. Likewise, ihiji replaces the expense and
hassle of managing an enterprise RMM infrastructure with the convenience of a single network management tool. Since it is not tied to a particular manufacturer, ihiji’s solution also monitors equipment from multiple vendors – a solid benefit that supports IT organizations working with disparate network equipment. ihiji’s NMaaS platform is simply a dynamic, powerful, and comprehensive solution.

ihiji INV-APP-500 Network Appliance

With this next-generation solution now in private beta, ihiji is seeking participants from the SMB and/or IT VAR channels. Interested parties are encouraged to learn more by visiting http://itbeta.ihiji.com/, emailing itbeta@ihiji.com, or calling 512.538.0520 ext. 2003.

ASHLY GEAR CHOSEN FOR SEDONA’S ENCHANTMENT RESORT

enchantment_clubhouse.JPGSEDONA, ARIZONA – APRIL 2012: Words hardly do justice to Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona. The upscale retreat is tastefully nestled within a red rock canyon in a way that makes the views from the pools, rooms, restaurants, lounges, and spa breathtakingly open and serene. It is a rare amalgam of backcountry camping’s beauty and modern hospitality’s comforts in which neither aspect is compromised.

Enchantment Resort began an eight-million dollar renovation to its main building, the Clubhouse, this past November. This building houses the resorts front desk, restaurants, bar, specialty wine bar, pool and pool bar, and an activity center. The Clubhouse renovation was completed and reopened just in time for their peak spring break season, which typically brings 100% occupancy. With an entire makeover of all restaurants, bars, public areas, front desk, retail shopping, and a new pool almost three times the more

dB AUDIO AND VIDEO INSTALLS REALISTICALLY-PRICED PANASONIC-BASED HD VIDEO SYSTEM AT LIVING HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH

livinghopechurch_stage.JPGBOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY – APRIL 2012: Living Hope Baptist Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky is not unlike other mid-sized churches. “Although we had always been happy to embrace new audio and video technologies over the years, the fact that we had fallen behind crept up on us slowly,” said the church’s creative arts pastor, Jon Farmer. In order to stay true to the church’s stated relationship with supporting technologies – “to better connect people with our message,” in Farmer’s words – Living Hope recently undertook a significant overhaul of its video system. Aided by the experts at dB Audio and Video of Gainesville, Georgia, the church now has a full HD presentation and recording system centered on Panasonic cameras, switchers, and projectors. Despite the truly vast improvement in performance, the cost was only a fraction of what it would have been just a few more

South Dakota-based Daktronics designed and installed the multi-purpose arena’s new A/V system, which includes Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers. Daktronics chose the Danley SH-100B and SH-100 boxes based on their exceptional intelligibility, pattern control, and value.

“We were on a very tight budget,” explained Mike Maloney, regional audio sales associate with Daktronics. “We always strive for high-efficiency systems, but at UNCW, more

ASHLY PEMA™ IN THE BIG HOUSE

yaphank_correctional.JPGLONG ISLAND, NEW YORK – MARCH 2012: Although the universe of institutions that require professional sound reinforcement includes churches, schools, and other places that can make a sound integrator feel warm and fuzzy at the end of the day, it is also populated by places like the Yaphank Correctional Facility (YCF) on Long Island, New York. The new $133-million building will house 650 inmates when it is finally commissioned for operation in the spring of 2012. To deliver both routine and safety-related information, Pro Sound Alliance (Troy, New York) a division of Live Sound, Inc., provided a three-tiered redundant paging system centered on the (figuratively) bulletproof Ashly Pema(tm).

The new YCF is designed around six “pods,” each of which will house one-hundred, or so, inmates in a way that maximizes the efficiency with which they can be guarded. Beyond the pods, more

ITS AURA AGLOW, SYMETRIX SOLUS 8 PROCESSOR PROVIDES THE SONIC SOUL FOR FASHIONABLE PHILADELPHIA RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – MARCH 2012: Aura Restaurant & Lounge recently opened in Philadelphia and, without wasting a moment, placed itself at the vanguard of the city’s hip and happening night life. Claiming two floors in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood, Aura is, like its clientele, dressed to the nines. But instead of sharp suits and tight dresses, Aura teases with futuristic LED lighting, HD plasma screens, and hip, modern décor. Of course, hearts race when Aura kicks up the music from one or both of the elevated DJ booths, and compliant bodies move to the rhythms. Aura hired Pro Systems from nearby Cherry Hill, New Jersey to breathe fire into its sound reinforcement system, and they responded by providing Aura with an unfalteringly stable Symetrix Solus 8, a processor that’s heavy on fidelity and possessed of a deep musical soul.

“We’ve been installing Symetrix processors of various types for several more
