Aten has announced the release of its IP-based 16-port KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch, which can be used to monitor and control up to 16 servers from a single console. The solution is aimed at global firms with server farms located in remote locations. The vendor says that KVM switches are the most economical, practical and affordable solution for large data centres that need to be accessed via an IP connection. The KN9116 KVM also features an adjustable front panel and a graphical user interface (GUI). Aten says it is ideal for a network administrator that must have 24/7 server room access, especially for critical operations. “The worldwide demand of IP-based solutions, with high scalability and flexibility, is evolving from the continuous renewing and expansion of IT infrastructures and booming broadband environment,” says Kevin Chen, CEO ATEN International. “ATEN’s KVM over the NET is the innovative enterprise solution that provides highest function/price ratio in the market and is designed and engineered to meet next generation network administration needs for remote control,” he adds. The KN9116 KVM features Dual Bus, which allows two administrators, one from a local console and the other remotely from any IP connected web browser, to securely monitor, manage, troubleshoot or run applications on 16 servers connected to the KVM switch. No additional software is required as the administrator can access through versatile management utilities. The latest security features such as password protection and advanced encryption technologies (DES 56bits/AES 256 bits/ RSA 1024 bits/ SSL 128 bits) are designed to secure servers and transferring data when remotely accessing. Thanks to its adjustable front panel, administrators can stretch the KN9116 to fit any rack length, and install the device from either front or rare side of the rack. The 16-port KVM over the Net supports 1280x1024 display resolution and multi-user Graphical OSD and toolbars allow convenient operation down to BIOS level.
