Perle Systems Releases Multihost Features

The Perle IOLAN SCS/STS and SDS product line now available with advanced multihost capabilities

NASHVILLE, TN—July 20, 2007— Perle continues to extend its console server market leadership, announcing today the launch of a multihost feature that includes bi-directional multihost sharing and automatic backup on its best selling IOLAN line of console/terminal/device servers. The IOLAN product family provides secure remote console management of data centers and remote IT assets worldwide for a broad range of businesses.

“This multihost feature exceeds all other competitive products”, states Julie McDaniel, Vice President of Marketing at Perle Systems. She adds, ”The technical advances Perle is creating in serial to Ethernet connectivity is changing the way customers are viewing their network capabilities in many industries. Most of these businesses are handling vast amounts of variegated data and Perle is providing a solution that addresses the challenges involved with such complexities; this multihost feature is one of those solutions.”

An industry standard in console management is the ability to support four multihost sessions. The Perle IOLAN supports a larger number of simultaneous sessions with multiple hosts – 1024 inbound, 49 outbound (20 outbound for desktop models). Another element of the new feature is the Automatic Backup whereby a connection control enables an alternative “backup” session be automatically established to a secondary host server should the primary connection be lost or dropped inadvertently.
