COVID, KVM, and WFH

Posted on October 26, 2020 by Jessica Ciesla

In a report released last month by 451 Research, the overall prognosis for IT spending during the pandemic is not a good one. The report notes that their leading indicator plunged “. . . to the worst level over the last decade.” Given the impact of the pandemic on the global economy, and on small businesses in particular, it is no surprise that these overall gauges of spending in our industry are showing negative numbers. One of the few bright spots in the report, however, is the fact that the pandemic “. . . compels organizations to adopt work-from-home business practices,” a category that has seen a 41% growth amidst a sea of negative numbers. 

WFH + IT = KVM

For facility and IT managers, the pandemic has placed a premium on remote access to tech infrastructure. The Dominion® KX IV-101 (DKX4-101), Raritan’s highest performing KVM-over-IP switch, provides a new level of Ultra HD 4K performance for remote access and management. More powerful and flexible than any other KVM-over-IP solution, it supports higher video resolutions, faster frame rates, higher video quality, and superior virtual media.

Here’s what the KX IV-101 brings:

•    Ultra-High Performance 4K and 1080p:  The Dominion KX IV-101 supports access to servers with 4K video resolution (3840x2160), up to 30 frames per second with the new KX IV User Station.
•    Flexible, Multi-Purpose, IP-Based: The KX IV-101 has user-configurable bandwidth to operate over LAN, WAN, and even the Internet for emergency out-of-hours IT support. As a flexible IP solution, it is accessible via User Station, Laptop, PC, and SmartPhone supporting users, managers, engineers, and IT.
•    Dominion Features and Compatibility: The KX IV-101 supports many of the popular Dominion features such as: BIOS-level access, virtual media, absolute mouse synchronization, LDAP/Radius/AD authentication, AES encryption, and support for up to 8 simultaneous sessions. 
•    Integrated KVM Solution: The KX IV-101 scales with Raritan’s CommandCenter management system, allowing multiple users to access multiple KX IV-101 and KX III switches, in single or multiple locations, across the country or even the world.
