Dominion® KX II
The most comprehensive KVMover-IP solution in the industry
Dominion KX II Series
KVM-over-IP the way it should be.
Enterprise-class KVM-over-IP
switch with integrated local and
secure multiplatform remote
access
The Dominion KX II is an enterprise-class, secure, KVM-over-IP switch that provides
remote BIOS-level control of up to 64 servers. It raises the bar in KVM-over-IP
technology with standard features such as Virtual Media and dual power – available
on all models – that maximize performance, security, reliability and versatility.

Raritan's Universal Virtual Media lets administrators perform tasks such as installing
software, transferring files and backing up data. A user can mount drives and media
from the user's desktop to servers in the data center during a KVM session.
Our Virtual KVM Desktop™ allows users to scale a target server's display to any size,
from thumbnails to full screen video. Transparent keyboard handling sends virtually
every keystroke combination straight to the server, for a user experience that's nearly
indistinguishable from an at-the-rack connection. Plus, it provides an intuitive user
experience – whether the target servers are being accessed locally or remotely – through
a common browser-based user interface. This interface supports the industry's widest
range of operating systems and browsers.
The Dominion KX II also features Absolute Mouse Synchronization™, which reduces
installation time and sets a new standard for mouse synchronization. Combined with
high-quality, 1600 x 1200 video resolution, Virtual KVM Desktop and Virtual Media
features, it provides the industry's most flexible and responsive remote user experience
available.
And with dual power supplies and dual gigabit Ethernet ports, both with automatic
failover, the Dominion KX II is the most reliable digital KVM switch in the industry.
Architecture
The Dominion KX II consists of the KVM-over-IP switch and Computer Interface
Modules (CIMs).
➤ Each CIM connects to the server's KVM ports and converts video signals for
transmission of up to 150 feet over UTP (Cat5/5e/6) cabling. CIMs also provide
keep-alive keyboard/mouse emulation.
➤ Dominion KX II offers KVM-over-IP capabilities for remote access, plus
simultaneous local access for controlling servers at the rack.
➤ Remote users easily access Dominion KX II from Windows®, Linux®, Sun® or Mac®
desktops via a wide range of Web browsers or standalone client via modem.
Raritan's remote client software is automatically downloaded via Web browser;
standalone versions of client software can be pre-installed for modem access.
➤ Dominion KX II provides its entire feature set out of the box: Virtual Media, AES
encryption, dual power supplies and dual gigabit Ethernet ports with failover,
SNMP, Syslog, as well as integration with LDAP, Radius and Active Directory®
authentication.
