All top makes of data centre blade and rack-mounted servers could be managed through a single interface, after supplier Raritan Inc put out an upgraded version of its management software.
The management software release for the Dominion KX II KVM-over-IP switch system has been developed to present administrators with all types of server assets set in a hierarchical display that offers a more complete view of the data centre estate.
Raritan said the software can now be used to manage blades from all the leading server manufacturers of IBM, HP and Dell.
Blade servers are self-contained high-density server stacks that are ideal for specific purposes such as web hosting and cluster computing. They have become extremely popular because their architecture is simpler and cheaper to manufacture than other server configurations.
