Anytime, Anywhere Access and Control
of all your data center devices.
Does it sometimes feel like your
data center is running you?
IT management is more critical and more complex than ever.
Let Raritan give you control – anytime, anywhere.
The challenge isn’t getting any easier, is it?
You're dealing with multiple servers, network devices and platforms – with new devices being
added all the time.
You have multiple locations to manage and support, with limited staff and limited expertise.
You face an increasing number of hacker and virus attacks.
On top of that, you have a finite budget to handle everything. Which doesn’t change the fact
that availability of your IT resources is absolutely critical – after all, downtime eats profits – and
you’re responsible.
So, how can you reduce downtime, increase security, contain costs and respond quickly to the changing
needs of your business? With Raritan. A single interface gives you a 360° view and BIOS-level control of
all of your servers and other IT devices, whether you’re at the rack, at your desk, in the Network
Operations Center (NOC), or anywhere in the world.
In other words, you’ll be in control.
Anytime, Anywhere Access and Control
Discover Raritan’s secure
building blocks.
Engineered to fit your IT architecture, not the other way around.
Our core building blocks – KVM (Keyboard/Video/Mouse) switches, serial device control, remote access
and control, remote office management and centralized device management – let you configure a solution to meet your particular needs. Buy what you need now. Then scale cost-effectively as your company grows.
That’s the way it ought to be, don’t you think?

Enterprise-Class KVM Switches
Enterprise-level businesses with large data centers are traditionally complex and difficult to monitor and
maintain. Raritan’s powerful KVM solutions make it easy, with KVM switches that let you manage
multiple servers and network devices from one or more centralized user consoles, each consisting of a
Keyboard, Video monitor and Mouse to reduce equipment clutter.
Raritan switches provide both secure in-band and out-of-band access to your devices. Local access via
cable, fiber or IP and remote access via IP or dial-up modem is a lot more reliable than a solution that
depends on proprietary software and a trouble-free network.
Paragon II is the second generation of Raritan's
battle-tested Cat5 enterprise-class analog KVM
solution for centralized server management.
Dominion KX is an enterprise-class digital KVM
switch, enabling secure BIOS-level control of servers
