Raritan’s vendor-agnostic solution for heterogeneous environments lets you access embedded service processors, blade/rack servers, virtual environments and KVM systems worldwide – from one interface.

You’re already dealing with servers from multiple manufacturers. As well as multiple locations. The last thing you need is multiple management solutions. Fortunately, Raritan can help, with our vendor-agnostic Multivendor Server Management solution.

Driven by our CommandCenter® Secure Gateway (CC-SG), it provides stronger support for service processor management, virtual server management and stand-alone server management. Plus, it offers enhanced integration with Power IQ®, for convenient control of PDUs from Raritan and other manufacturers.

Available as a rack-mountable hardware appliance or a VMware®-ready virtual appliance, our solution provides you with integrated, secure, and simplified access and control of all technology platforms at the application, operating system, and BIOS level.

Plus, from a single IP address using a standard Web browser, you can access, control and manage all your physical/virtual servers, rack PDUs, and serial devices located anywhere in the world.

Multivendor server management is easier than ever before. 
With our solution, you’ll take advantage of:
