In general, the choice between KVM and serial management has to do with the customer and how they want to manage the equipment and whether the device to be managed has serial or KVM ports.
- If the equipment only has a serial port, like networking or telecom equipment, then you would use serial.
- For Linux servers, you could use KVM or serial depending on the user’s preference. For windows machines mostly KVM is used, but there is also a serial interface.
