Virtual Media Technology Embraced by IT Administrators for Server Room Efficiency
For organizations with multiple locations, accessing and managing IT resources remotely is a necessity. Virtual media technology enables IT managers and administrators to do just that. Virtual media allows users to remotely transfer out-of-band data through the connected switch to any server and perform diagnostic tests, download files and install programs or operating system patches from a virtual media connection. This is important not just for the sake of efficiency, but it is also crucial for emergency access when a network is down.
Virtual media technology also enables users to control power management remotely, that is, remotely power off, power on, and reboot – an obvious advantage for organizations looking to minimize their power outlay.
