Memset Hosting select Perle Console Servers for OOBM in every Data Center Rack

IOLAN Console Servers save time, space and power at Memset.

NASHVILLE, TN—February 18, 2015 —Perle Systems, a global manufacturer of advanced Serial to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, reveals that Memset Hosting use Perle Console Servers for out-of-band management (OOBM) of servers, switches, routers and PDU’s in all Data Centers

IOLAN Console Server

Voted the UK’s best Web Host year after year, Memset’s company culture dictates constant improvements upon existing service and infrastructure. When the existing data center management solution showed signs of unreliability, the engineering team at Memset researched alternatives. The new management console solution had to fulfil the following requirements:

Memset Data Center

  • Provide out of band (OOB) remote access of attached equipment.
  • Remotely re-boot servers.
  • Configure and re-configure switches and PDU’s.
  • Provide emergency back door network access.

Serial Console Servers from Perle fit the bill. Memset installed Perle IOLAN SCS 48 port Console Servers in every Data Centre Rack.

“Perle Console Servers use less power, less rack space and are more reliable,” said Nick Craig-Wood, Founder and Technical Director at Memset.
