New High-capacity Gateways Support Up to 1K Users, 8 TB Storage Per Location
PORTLAND, OR, Aug 19, 2022 – Uplevel Systems, provider of IT infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions to managed service providers (MSPs), is introducing two new high-end, high-capacity gateways designed to help partners serve larger clients with more complex needs. The new devices, the Uplevel Pro and Max Gateways, target medium-sized businesses with 200 to 1000 users per location and high-end speed and storage requirements.
“These new faster, higher-capacity gateways equip our Managed Service Provider partners to help a wider range of businesses with a wider range of computing and connectivity needs,” says Tom Alexander, founder and CEO at Uplevel. “MSPs now have the flexibility to deploy the same infrastructure solution at home offices and very large sites and to see and manage everything though one simple portal.”
The new 6- and 8-port gateways deliver exponentially higher processing speeds (up to 4x faster) and up to 8TB storage with optional RAID capabilities. The Uplevel Solution suite now features four gateways ranging from a 4-port “work from home” SOHO device ideal for locations with less than 20 users to the new PRO and Max higher performance options.
Its enterprise-grade gateways form the cornerstone of Uplevel’s hybrid IaaS approach which combines simple-to-install hardware with anywhere/anytime cloud management, subscription-based pricing, and world-class support. Every size gateway delivers or enables wired and wireless network connectivity, firewall, storage and backup, VoIP with QoS, and remote access via secure virtual private networks (VPNs). Devices can be drop-shipped and easily powered up by clients when needed.
“The whole concept behind Uplevel is being able to deliver what a client needs to run its business—wireless access points, switches, firewalls and security, NAS, backup—with great economies of scale,” says Ed Shanker, founder, Meeting Tree Computer, a NY-based MSP. “You get everything built into one box so you don’t need to buy five separate pieces of equipment to do five different things.”
Uplevel’s IaaS solutions eliminate the need for an average upfront capital investment of thousands of dollars per site while ensuring customers always have the latest, most up-to-date without costly maintenance contract renewals. Uplevel secure remote worker gateways are easy to configure and install, are customizable to each client environment, and feature built-in cybersecurity including dynamic DNS, Active Directory, and enterprise-class firewall and IPS capabilities.
“Uplevel’s subscription model makes more sense than patching things together with a bunch of point solutions,” says Scott Toombs, founder of Lexington IT Solutions, a South Carolina-based MSP. “Most clients like the idea that they get everything they need for a few hundred dollars a month and don’t have need to shell out thousands upfront.”
Uplevel Systems was founded in 2016 to bring a better class of IT infrastructure solutions to two vital under served markets: small-to-medium-sized companies and the managed service providers (MSPs) who help grow their businesses.
Uplevel’s innovative infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) approach combines enterprise-class gateways, cloud management, world-class support, cyber security, and flexible subscription plans that streamline installation and management while eliminating capital expenditures for gateways, servers, firewalls, wireless access points (APs), remote office solutions, and more.
