VM’s and ILO’s and RDP, oh my!

Posted on September 9, 2010 by Website Administrator

So, you’ve built a state of the art lights out data center with all the latest best of breed technologies. You have virtual machines, Windows servers, Linux/Unix servers, assorted service processors, blade systems, and a resilient network and security infrastructure. You also have a heterogeneous assortment of technologies, that each requires a different set of access and administration tools. How can you provide your systems admins a centralized system to access everything from a “single pane of glass” to simplify their daily job responsibilities?

Enter Command Center, a vendor agnostic data center access and management system. Command Center was originally designed to manage KVM and serial switches, but the IT world has changed, and so has Raritan’s Command Center. Command Center offers a wealth of IP centric tools that are perfect for providing network based access and management capabilities for today’s modern data centers. Server access tools include RDP, VNC, and SSH for your Windows, Unix, and Linux systems. VMware Virtual Machines are dynamically supported by a tight integration with Virtual Center and offer VI Client, RDP, VNC, and SSH access in addition to virtual server system information. Service processors can be integrated by using the native ILO/RILO, DRAC, IPMI, and RSA interface capabilities of Command Center. Network and security systems can be accessed via a web browser, SSH, and Telnet. And if you are using KVM and Serial switches, they can be centrally managed and accessed too!
