Arulas Cerebus x8 is a capable appliance that can centralize administration of eight networking devices. Although the price per managed device is fairly high, the product is well-suited for Internet service providers and data centers that need out-of-band management tools to ease administration headaches.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Cerebus x8 is fairly pricey, but, once implemented, IT managers will see immediate benefits.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Cerebus should provide a good return on investment over the long run by noticeably increasing the productivity of IT professionals.

Provides an integrated remote hardware-access solution for IP networks; strong collaborative management feature.

Expensive; does not provide centralized management of multiple Cerebus systems.
