Raritan Computer Inc. Releases IP-based KVMs

By: Array

A name unfamilar to most, Raritan Computer Inc. (a leading provider of solutions for managing IT infrastructure equipment and the mission-critical applications and services that run on it) expanded upon their enterprise-class Dominion KX product line today with the release of the world's first IP-based KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch (X432) which is capable of supporting five concurrent users and up to 32 servers. Also on offer is a cut-down KVM-over-IP switch (KX416) supporting five concurrent users and 16 servers.

 

One awesome product indeed! - Full details in the official PR folks.

 

The new Dominion KX models - KX432 and KX416 - are ideal for situations where multiple IT specialists need simultaneous remote access to data center equipment. Using Raritan's proven and secure KVM-over-IP technology, the Dominion KX switches support up to five concurrent users - four of them via a Web browser and one via the local console port - for high-availability access to servers and other devices.

 

The breadth of the expanded Dominion KX product line - ranging from the KX116 (two concurrent users and 16 ports) to the KX432 (five concurrent users and 32 ports) - enables companies to deploy solutions that best match their IT environments. For example, installing one 32-port KVM switch, instead of several switches, to handle all the equipment in a densely-populated server rack not only simplifies server management, but also preserves rack space and reduces associated costs, such as HVAC and electricity. Dominion KX switches also protect IT investment because they can scale easily to meet the needs of expanding data centers and server farms.
