The Cycladesr ACS 5000 series of advanced console servers offers IT professionals and network operations center (NOC) personnel the ability to perform secure, remote data center management and out-of-band management of IT assets from anywhere in the world. Using a hardened Linuxr operating system, Cyclades ACS 5000 console servers provide optimal performance, security and reliability. Combined with integrated power management and using DSViewr 3 management software, Cyclades 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, the ACS 5000 series help provide scalability, decrease network maintenance costs, and maximize IT asset productivity in medium to large enterprise data centers.
Security features such as SSH v2, RADIUS authentication, IP filtering, and user access lists per port allow data center managers and system administrators 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 allows for faster problem-solving actions and higher network uptime.
