8-Port Health Manager KVM Switch


The KH98 KVM Switch offers multiple computer access along with Remote intelligent Platform Management Interface(IPMI 2.0) monitoring from a single console (Keyboard,monitor,and mouse).

IPMI allows the monitoring of server hardware health related factors including CPU temperature,voltage,fan speed,etc.
IPMI is quickly becoming a computer industry standard for troubleshooting and failure prevention. Best of all, IPMI can be deployed remotely(Out of Band), even when a system is down.
Thanks to the KH98, now you can easily manage and maintain your infrastructure in a cost effective manner. A single KH98 can manage up to 8 computers. Since units can be cascaded to three levels, in a full three stage installation up to 73 KH98 units can control and monitor up to 512 computers - all from a single console.
