Java-Free KVM and Serial Access Now Available

Raritan Migration to Java-Free Remote Management Accelerates

In response to customers’ security and usability concerns surrounding browser support for Java, Raritan has initiated plans to migrate away from Java technology. This migration has taken a major step with the latest Dominion KX III and CommandCenter Releases.

Java-Free KVM and Serial Clients Now Available with CommandCenter Support

Java-free KVM and Serial access is now available for the Dominion KX III (Release 3.5) and Dominion SX II respectively. CommandCenter Release supports these two new Java-free HTML Clients. See below for more information.

For other products, firmware releases with the latest Java support are accessible to download from our support portal. We will continue to provide non-Java solutions as well as support the latest Java Releases. The tables below provide additional product information and resources, as well as recommended actions for customers.
