KVM and serial accessories helps to maximize the functionality and manageability of your KVM switches, including DVI extenders, computer interface modules (CIMs), converters, adapters, emulators, cables, and rackmount brackets.
A KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch is a hardware device that allows a user to control multiple computers from a single keyboard, video display monitor and mouse.
KVM switches are often found in data centers where multiple servers are placed in a single rack. By pressing a button on the kvm switch, the administrator can change control from one server to the next. Using a KVM switch can save the administrator the cost of purchasing a dedicated keyboard, monitor and mouse for each computer, save space in the server room and limit cable clutter.
HPE Enterprise IP KVM switches can allow an administrator to manage up to 1024 servers across two tiers from a single local console in cascaded environments. When tiered with additional HPE switches application installations and upgrades can be pushed to any server from the local console or remotely. HPE IP KVM switches along with the IP Console Viewer allows remote access to multiple servers running various operating systems. Virtual Media allows a removable drive or ISO image to be remotely mapped to an attached server or a remote office.
