The latest IOLAN firmware includes Windows Emergency Management Services support

NASHVILLE, TN—October 27, 2008— Perle Systems, the global developer and manufacturer of serial to Ethernet connectivity solutions announced today the release of IOLAN 3.6 software with support for Windows Emergency Management Services (EMS) for Perle IOLAN Console Servers. IOLAN users can download the new firmware directly from the Perle website.

“The Windows EMS features enables administrators to access the Special Administrative Console (SAC) with an easy to use GUI interface”, says Julie McDaniel, VP Marketing at Perle Systems. “This new features allows administrators to perform critical recovery functions, show system performance as well as list and kill processes.”

The Emergency Management Services (EMS), available in Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008, provides “headless” support for today enterprise servers.  It enables management services without the need for a keyboard, mouse, local monitor, and video adapter.  A server administrator interacts with EMS through a Special Administration Console (SAC) to perform management and recovery tasks, even when the system’s operational status is questionable. This “Out-of- Band” operation provides the best method for recovery of Windows Servers in remote locations today.
