"Avocent has showcased its KVM switching solutions in the Microsoft Partner Solution Center in Redmond for the past two years, which has given developers a unique opportunity to configure real-world applications using Avocent's data center solutions," said Steve Bauman, general manager of e-commerce solutions at Microsoft Corp. "We are pleased to see Avocent participate in this center, which will provide similar opportunities for e-commerce clients in the Mountain View area to see firsthand Avocent's innovative remote access solutions."
"Avocent's KVM OVER IP(TM) solutions have provided us with reliable and scalable KVM technology for our expanding network," states Jerry Holt, system engineer, The TriZetto Group, Inc. "The DS1800 and CPS product lines allow us to centralize console-level control of not only our PC and serial devices, but gain KVM access to our Sun servers as well. With Avocent's technology, I was able to build two of the Sun servers while I was physically off site."
"We like the ease of management and consolidated controlthat the DSView application provides with DS1800. We like the way Avocent has integrated CAT 5 cabling into their DS Series and continued to centralize control with one application." "With Avocent's DS1800, our administrators can use IP connections to gain complete control of the MicrosoftR NT or SunR servers from just one console," said Patrick Tierney, system administrator at Internet Security Systems, Inc. "We chose DS1800 because of its scalable TCP/IP design and ability to provide BIOS level control of any server, from any location as well as theability to easily add administrators - with unique security privileges - to the system in the future."
"DS1800 gives us the ability to access and administer our servers regardless of where they are located," said Ron Pollvogt, Vice President of Product Managementfor VeriCenter. "We can securely manage our customer environments from our network operations centers without the distance and space limitations associated with legacy KVM technology. The installation of the DS1800 was easily accomplished and I have been very impressed with the quality of support VeriCenter has received.
"The DS1800 system allows our administrators to easily control servers in our Internet Data Centers and Network Operation Centers (NOCs) throughout Latin America, where 24/7 access and control is critical," said Enrique Fornonzini, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MetroRED. "DS1800's scalable design gives us the flexibility we need to accommodate future growth in each region. MetroRED will now be able to easily manage and control thousands of servers and devices located in these three countries.
