CeBIT 2006, Hall 16, Stand C05 – 9 March, 2006 – Adder Technology, the leading developer of KVM switching and extension technology for computer systems, today launched ADDERView IP, an integrated solution for the management of both local and global computer servers. Combining the advantages of a professional grade KVM (keyboard, video monitor and mouse) switch with the flexibility of remote management through the Internet, it delivers a secure, reliable system aimed at organisations with multiple sites, campus locations or offshored IT resources.An increasing number of organisations require the ability to manage server resources both locally and via the Internet. The flexibility of ADDERView IP allows shared visibility and management of servers beyond the traditional data centre or server room. Companies that have centralised or offshored IT can retain control of servers wherever they are located, while still ensuring local technical staff have access, thereby maximising their investment. Multi-site companies can manage IT from anywhere in the world, fitting in with time zones and availability of technical resources to provide uninterrupted monitoring and support, while disparate campus locations can be managed from a single point.The ADDERView IP solution comprises an ADDERView Matrix KVM switch combined with an ADDERLink IP unit for remote access via the Internet. The products are integrated through advanced management software that provides seamless, reliable operation and control of local and global IT resources."Technology is at the heart of today’s successful organisations meaning the need for server management has never been greater," said Adrian Dickens, CEO of Adder Technology. "Companies are increasingly looking for ways to manage beyond the local server room and the ADDERView IP provides a flexible, high performance solution that delivers secure control of vital IT resources from anywhere in the world."The ADDERView IP offers a dual-access KVM switch with On-Screen-Display control and a KVM-via-IP solution that uses HTTP Java viewers or RealVNC for highly secure connections and high performance.
Advanced features include:Independent operation: With full control even during boot up, BIOS level or computer crash states, the ADDERView IP will work even if the controlled devices are not operating.
High video performance: Both local and remote users enjoy exceptionally high video performance. Remote users of the ADDERView IP benefit from the superior graphical performance of RealVNC, as well as the ability to use standard web browsers.
Highly secure: Employing enterprise-grade security (using AES 128 bit encryption and RSA 2048 bit public key authentication) as standard the ADDERLink IP is further enhanced by its use of RealVNC.
User management: The ADDERView IP supports up to 16 user profiles, and enables access rights for each user to be defined. Each user’s activity is recorded and time stamped while the resulting log can be exported for historical review.
Power control: When attached computers crash or require resetting, often the only solution is to power them off and back on again. The ADDERView IP allows integration of power switching devices that can be controlled through the user interface.
The ADDERView IP is available now in both 8 and 16 port versions and can be easily cascaded to manage up to 250 servers. It is shipped with all necessary rack mounting equipment. Pricing is €1,665 (£1,095) for the 8 port version and €2,045 (£1,345) for the 16 port.
