Enable data centres remotely diagnose and resolve IT equipment issues

By CBR Staff Writer

Raritan, a provider of power management and infrastructure management, KVM and serial offerings for data centres, has launched a virtual version of its CommandCenter Secure Gateway (CC-SG) appliance.

The company said virtual platform provides centralised, secure access to IT equipment to help data centres remotely diagnose and resolve IT equipment issues and reduce server management costs.

The new virtual management offering leverages VMware technology and delivers all the functionalities of CC-SGs hardware-based appliances that enable IT administrators to manage entire IT infrastructures using a single web-browser interface.

The new offering serves as a centralised gateway for managing both virtual and physical servers, embedded service processors, serial devices and power management devices, Raritan said.

Raritan product manager Derek Finch said the company added a virtual model to its CC-SG portfolio to enable users to take advantage of their existing servers in order to save money and space.

"Our CC-SG offering, whether deployed as a virtual or hardware appliance, delivers performance, scalability and flexibility in managing IT resources without leaving the CC-SG GUI," Finch said.
