Using a hardened Linux® operating system, ACS 5000 console servers provide
optimal performance, security and reliability. Combined with integrated power
management and using DSView® 3 management software, ACS 5000 console
servers offer centralized management and a secure and consolidated out-of-band
management solution.
Decreased Maintenance Costs and Enhanced Productivity
Available in 4-, 8-, 16-, 32- and 48-port models that fit in 1U of rack space, ACS
5000 console servers help maximize network and server availability with scalability
and cost-effectiveness.
Security features such as SSH v2, RADIUS authentication, IP filtering and user
access lists per port allow data center managers and system administrators the
ability to remotely manage the network and servers with greater control and reliability.
Console management features such as data buffering, direct access methods
to the serial ports (such as TCP port and server name) and event notification
improve monitoring capabilities which allow faster problem solving and higher
network uptime.
ACS 5000 console servers decrease network maintenance costs and help maximize
IT asset productivity while providing scalability, making it the right choice for secure
in-band and out-of-band management for medium to large enterprise data centers.
