A leading ODM manufacturer that designs and releases multiple product lines for several well-known brands needed a technology change. With the increasing number of servers housed in its server room, along with the operators needed to work on them, the company planned to build a new data center and adopt an efficient solution that allows multiple operators to manage up to 480 servers concurrently. With three 32” LCD monitors in the operation center of the new data center that will be used for critical monitoring and control, the solution needed to provide secure access and high-quality data throughput between the consoles and the servers over extended distances. In addition to achieve efficient allocation of human resources, IT administrators working from different locations needed to control or monitor the servers located in the data center, all at the same time.
According to the company’s needs, it integrated a 16-port KVM over the NET switch that maximizes efficiency and flexibility while minimizing costs. Remote operators are able to monitor and access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser. With advanced features – Message Board, Panel Array Mode, Mouse DynaSync™, and Adapter ID, the unit allows users to upgrade IT management efficiency.
Save cost, time, space and energy – Allows fewer administrators to manage hundreds of servers from multiple locations and eliminates the inconvenience and wasted effort involved in constantly moving from one computer to another; eliminates the expense of purchasing a separate keyboard, mouse and monitor for each computer; saves space for extra components; saves on energy costs.
Extend distance without sacrificing quality – Extends the distance between the servers and the consoles, which are located in the control room, up to 300 meters. High quality data throughput reduces signal transmission delay for essential real-time operation, and maintains high video quality. Secure access ensures data integrity.
Boost efficiency – Boosts efficiency with real-time Management, enabling you to handle any mission-critical server emergency from any locations; and centralized control, which provides secure and solid management through a single interface.
Customized solution that meets local/remote access requirements – Digital KVM switches can be cascaded from Analog KVM switches for an integrated solution that allows operators access to high quality video output from all servers via a single GUI in the local station, while at the same time providing remote users in different locations control over the servers.
Flexible Scalability – Flexible expansion configuration allows you to add consoles and servers one at a time to match your data center’s growth. It also provides exactly the right level of hardware deployment to match your budget and expansion requirements.
Integrated Control of different systems – Supports multiplatform servers via optional KVM adapter cables – allowing any combination of PC, Mac and Sun computer platforms and serial devices to coexist on the installation.
