StarTech.com 16 Port Rackmount USB PS/2 Digital IP KVM Switch
This Digital IP KVM Switch offers secure and flexible local and remote administration of critical systems and services, combining our dependable Server Remote Control technology with a proven Enterprise-class digital KVM switch.
Server Remote Control
Unlike software solutions that require installation and work through your server operating system, this easy-to-configure IP KVM Switch delivers BIOS level control and full interaction with connected system boot processes over a TCP/IP connection. Users can reboot the system, access the BIOS and have full control over the keyboard and mouse as if they are on site - a cost-effective solution for outsourced server/IT hardware management and access to mission-critical corporate datacenter servers.
Remote Control can't come at the expense of security! This Digital IP KVM switch features built-in support for SSH tunneling, SSL encryption and RADIUS authentication, as well as a configurable firewall. Plus, access to the IP KVM web console is user ID and SSL password secured to prevent unauthorized access.
A Scalable IP KVM Solution
A scalable KVM control solution, the IP KVM Switch supports up to 16 directly-connected servers or workstation computers. To create a more flexible infrastructure, the switch can be cascaded with other existing/new KVM switches for remote control of up to 136 computers from this single IP KVM unit.
Designed to accommodate a wide range of operating environments, the Digital IP KVM switch is compatible with PC, Mac and Sun Servers/Systems, ensuring the flexibility needed to efficiently manage connected devices regardless of operating platform.
To provide further versatility, the switch supports computers with USB or PS/2 keyboard and mouse connectors allowing a broader mix of connected computers including both legacy (PS/2) and modern (USB).
Rack Mounted Convenience
To preserve valuable server room or work space, the IP KVM can be mounted into 1U of rack/cabinet space. Similarly, all external connections to the server remote control/KVM unit are located on the rear panel to eliminate cable tangles and mess.
