Overview: Many large companies do not realize the great pains that network administrators go through to maximize real estate in an enterprise-class data center. Space is costly and network administrators continually rely upon devices that help them do more with less. One such tool to aid in this effort is the KVM (keyboard/video/mouse) switch that enables IT pros to easily and effectively manage servers and other network devices - within the data center or from remote locations. Data centers are continuing
to expand. Some are bursting to capacity as new devices are added, security measurements taken and infrastructures swelling to keep pace with the need for more complex applications and technologies. To better control these devices, the KVM switch has evolved into a truly empowering tool for network administrators.
Chicago-based Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is the largest multi-professional organization dedicated to ensuring excellence and consistency in the practice of critical care. Given the small size of its data center and the need to expand the number of servers, the Society researched KVM solutions to eliminate the clutter and cost involved with purchasing and connecting a keyboard and monitor to each server.
This white paper will discuss how organizations of all sizes can optimize their data centers using KVM and remote technology to set new standards of excellence in reclaiming precious rack space. The paper will also offer information on achieving that excellence and use real-life examples of dynamic organizations with the vision to understand the inherent benefits of this approach.
