Complete Console Control
As data centers become increasingly distributed, the need to securely manage network devices and servers becomes a top priority. TPI’s console management solutions provide an easy and secure way to manage serial console devices including servers, network gear, telco and power distribution units through local or remote IP connections. To effectively manage all of these disparate devices from a single console, a comprehensive user interface is necessary to provide point-and-click connectivity and enforce strong access and control. With secure in-band and out-of-band connectivity, these solutions offer quick access to critical devices whether the network is up or down. Console servers also support industry-standard Telnet and SSH clients.
Without a centralized management console, there is no centralized user access management between each system. Each connection type must maintain its own user and password list—no sharing of information. With the current shift away from large, centralized computer systems to centralized, dispersed networks of smaller computers, efficient and cost-effective network management, remote and/ or local is critical to today’s 24/7 business.
Centralized console management delivers dramatic return on investment.
Investing in a centralized management solution provides a dramatic return on investment (ROI) through time saved, increased productivity and improved efficiencies in your data center. Gain 24/7 secure access and control almost immediately with centralized management of your data center. Distance limitations are eliminated. Remote access increases IT staff productivity by cutting unnecessary treks down the hall or across the campus to work on your systems. Car and plane travel expenses are practically eliminated. Access to your data center is available without leaving your desk.
In addition to increasing the time and effectiveness of IT staff, your solution can improve air flow in the racks, reducing cooling expenses: increase data center real estate for other devices; and provide a superior security structure, all to help you perform at a higher level – and save money.
Bottom Line: TPI’s centralized console management solutions enable you to remotely manage servers, network equipment and other IT assets providing you with the most critical aspect of IT infrastructure management.
