To help you manage and control an entire data center, our KVM over IP switches support blade servers and chassis. With powerful new features such as Power Association – KVM ports can be associated with ATEN PDU power outlets for power management of servers from the KVM over IP switches’ user interface.
KVM over IP switches now support the new Control Center Video Session Recorder (CCVSR) software. The CCVSR records all operations made on servers accessed through KVM over IP switches. Every operation and change from the BIOS level to logging in, from running software applications to configuring the operating system- is recorded and saved to a secure video file as evidence, without exception.
In addition, the KN series is compatible with ATEN’s KVM over IP Console Station, the KA82 series. The KA82 series is a hardware-based standalone console solution that can centrally manage multiple KN devices. It is especially suitable for environments where a PC is not allowed. The KVM over IP Console Station features a 0U space-saving compact design and low power consumption for 24/7 operations.
The Virtual Media function lets you map to storage media on USB, hard disk and DVD/CD drives located on remote servers – allowing administrators to conduct file transfers, install applications, run O.S. updates, or perform diagnostics across a network with ease.
Enhanced capabilities of KVM over IP switches also include: a Message Board, Panel Array Mode™, Mouse DynaSync™, Adapter ID and Secure Serial Server Access. The secure access to serial-controlled devices includes network equipment, Unix servers, Linux servers, Sun servers and many more serial consoles. It provides installation without needing expensive serial dongles.
With dual on-board NICs and dual power supplies, the KVM over IP switches are built for reliability, to ensure 24/7 availability of remote access to all server room computers.
A Windows Client and a Java Client are available for remote access. They allow IP connection and login from anywhere over the internet. In addition, ATEN also provides an iOS APP - PadClient, whose intuitive interface makes it easy to connect to the KVM over IP switch and control computers direct from your iPad. Please visit the PadClient webpage for more information.
With Aten KVM over IP switches, IT administrators can manage their server rooms and data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel costs and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) – ensuring the highest availability of data center services possible.
