With the increasing dependency on technology to solve major crimes, information requirements for analysis and strategic decision making has grown respectively from paper and physical files to a digital format. Given the increasing need of police officers to share information across departments, more and more police districts are setting up larger, more complex information systems centers deployed by their own IT professionals.
To house new advanced application and database servers, many law enforcement agencies often turn to building centralized data centers and look for efficient solutions that enable multiple operators to manage up to hundreds of servers. To serve IT professionals working within the data center, and IT administrators working remotely from buildings outside the data center, agencies should consider data center solutions that support both local and remote access – at the same time.
One such product is a matrix KVM switch which is designed for modern data centers that require reliable, high security access and control of multiple servers. In addition, agencies would benefit from deploying management software to provide IT administrators with the tools they need to access and control their entire distributed data center environment. With these solutions in place, law enforcement agencies are afforded effortless access to servers.
