Do your administrators need a comprehensive solution to manage multiple servers in a single device? The HP Server Console Switch G2 integrates KVM and serial devices into a single management console for all your servers, network devices and infrastructure. HP Server Console Switches allows multiple servers in a rack to be accessed and managed by one keyboard, monitor, and mouse.
The 8-port and 16-port Server Console Switches feature an On-Screen Display (OSD) interface, which has intuitive menus for accessing each attached computer or serial attached device. Equipment can be identified by a user-defined name or sequentially by number, enabling easy access.
Switches can be connected in a tiered fashion, to increase server access from eight servers to as many as 256 servers. Switching between computers is accomplished by typing a switching command at the keyboard, or by using the mouse to interact with the graphic interface of the selected computer via the OSD.
