A Few Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Console Server

Share: 

There are many different console server options to fit your organizations’ needs. Consider these points when beginning to look at units and contact us today to speak with an expert about your specific requirements and which one would be the right fit for you.

Console Setup
The console server should take up a very limited amount of space on the rack and be rack-mountable. It should require minimal cabling but at the same time provide a high level of integration. Making sure all connectors are on the same side is important too, as this will take up the least amount of rack space.

Security
You will want to decide who in your company should have access to the console server. There should be an option to have multi-level user access control and login capability. The unit should also log in all its activities to maintain security and regulatory auditing compliance.

Flexible and Compatible
It is vital that the console server you purchase be compatible with all of your organization’s servers and network equipment. You also want it to be flexible to connect to other service processors and power distribution units.
