Console Server switches (also called RS232, Unix, and TTY switches) provide additional layers of security,
redundancy, and out-of-band management.

What are Console Servers?

Console servers (also called RS232 aggregators, terminal servers, or secure console servers) provide out-of-band management for switches, routers, and other command-line controlled devices through a secure shell or SSL browser session. Remote console and console server management products are some of the industry's most intuitive solutions for managing command-line devices.

These devices are differentiated by their method of access, as well as how they are aggregated for centralized management.

The key differentiating attributes across console servers are as follows:

  • Physical Redundancy: Power supplies, consoles and hard drives, modem access, port buffer allocation

  • Method of Access: Telnet, SSH, or browsers

  • Accessibility: port-level security, external authentication, and port log size

Managing a Single CLI Device in A KVM Environment
If you have only a few CLI devices mixed in with a predominately KVM installation, an ASCII terminal converter will give you an inexpensive way to gain console control. These devices allow you to manage your serial devices, such as routers and hubs, through your KVM infrastructure. This approach will enable complete control of your KVM and serial assets thought a single analog interface.

42U's Vision is to inspire corporate responsibility in energy efficiency and be a leader in providing technology and vendor agnostic information, suggestions, and solutions for making data centers more energy efficient.
