Data Center Management
In and Out of Band Access using Serial Console Servers
Running an effective IT infrastructure today often depends on accessing, monitoring, and managing IT equipment remotely. Although some equipment may be installed in the data centre, the need to support remote offices, factory floors or other unattended locations, is also important.
While specialist management software can be used for in-band remote monitoring, some tasks may seemingly be impossible unless the equipment can be physically accessed. Many devices have a serial or USB port for making configuration changes or uploading new firmware. However, visiting remote equipment cabinets with the correct console cable and laptop is a time-consuming and expensive task.
Perle Console Servers provide advanced out-of-band-management (OOBM) tactics that will simplify and reinforce remote data center access. Any device with a console management port can be networked and managed remotely - even across the internet. This anywhere, anytime management strategy provides the necessary connectivity resilience to IT devices within a modern Data Center.
