Perle Discloses Partial List of OOBM Customers

Rackspace, and Avis Budget use Perle Console Servers for Out-of-Band Management

NASHVILLE, TN—November 25, 2014 —Perle Systems, a manufacturer of advanced serial to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, today reveals a partial list of customers who rely on Perle Console Servers for Out-of-Band Management (OOBM) to minimize network downtime and maximize network connectivity.

OOBM Console Server

Network downtime is still a reality that all companies face. According to Gartner industry surveys, network downtime costs $5,600 per minute, which extrapolates to well over $300K per hour. 1These costs associated with lost profit, productivity and repair are driving organizations to focus time, effort, research and resources into solutions that help avoid networking outages.

For companies such as, a world leader of online hotel-bookings, and Heathrow Airport Holdings, one of the largest transport companies in the world, remote access to Cisco serial console ports is the key to recovering data center equipment when the network is down.

"Perle has been a market leader in Out-of-Band-Management since the concept emerged in the late 1990’s," says Joe Perle, CEO at Perle Systems. "That is why companies like Rackspace, BAA and other Fortune 500 companies trust us to be their provider of choice for OOBM Console Servers."

Perle Console Servers with advanced OOBM functionality provide an efficient method for recovery. Whether it is to diagnose, reboot, reconfigure or troubleshoot equipment, IOLAN Console Servers can access remote networking equipment through the use of an alternate backup network dial-up or GSM wireless remote access.
