Data Center Control : Centralized Management Tips & Guide

By: Lisa RiCharde

The new data center requires systems that provide more control, flexibility and scalability than ever before. You need more than server management. You need a system that reduces your Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) while leveraging the existing IT resources you already have.

If you need to manage data centers and branch offices anytime from anywhere, there is an answer. A centralized management approach with out-of-band capability can increase data center control, allow you to do more with less, and provide remote access from anywhere in the world.

Today's support-minded network administrators need around the clock access to servers 365 days a year - both at the rack and in remote locations. Fortunately, with centralized management (including both in-band and out-of-band connectivity), your data center has never been so close.

Innovative serial console server and KVM over IP switching solutions allow you to leverage the IP connectivity and security models in your network. Centralized management software lets you control an appliance that can be connected to servers, serial devices, even power distribution units and environmental monitoring. With centralized management, you can control multiple servers and network devices no matter where they are located. Virtual media is a more recent addition. It increases administrator efficiency by allowing you to conduct a large host of tasks remotely such as file transfers.

Whether you need access at the rack, in the Network Operating Center (NOC), or from your laptop at home, there are solutions available that will provide unprecedented, secure access and help you show a quick return on your investment.
