Big On Servers, Short On Space? Get An IP KVM December 18, 2013Posted by laptoppartsexpert in KVM, Networking, Server.
So, let’s say you manage a lot of servers for a big company or you have a small army of cloud servers for your customers, and you don’t have a lot of space in your rack. You also need to be able to remotely access them all as quickly as possible. What do you do? Well, I recommend an IP KVM. This 1U rackmount device allows you to connect up to 48 servers by a simple Ethernet connection.
If your server does not have an IP KVM port, you can just terminate it to USB or PS/2 with a KVM terminator cable. Once connected, you will be able to remotely control up to 48 servers from one keyboard and mouse. This also keeps necessary cabling down to a minimum and you can save more money by making your own custom length Ethernet cables.
