Need remote access to servers and other serial managed devices in the rack? HPE Enterprise Serial Console Servers provide remote access to headless servers such as those running UNIX, Linux or Microsoft as well as serial managed devices such as network switches and routers from any workstation on the network or a local terminal. HPE Serial Console Servers support either 16 or 48 attached devices or servers through a single IP address using any SSH or telnet client. Up to two 16 Port Serial Console Servers or one 48 Port Serial Console Server can be mounted in a single "U" of rack space. The HPE Enterprise Serial Console Server will reconfigure, reboot and re-image remotely even if the primary data network is down to minimize disruption and downtime from a single console. With its powerful user access control and streamline management from the Virtual Media option, the HPE Serial Console Server grants access to specified users or even implements Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory authentication while allowing servers to access storage media. Security for servers is controlled by user names, passwords, and access rights configured and stored in non volatile memory in the Serial Console Server for up to 64 users or through RADIUS. The HPE Serial Console Servers offer the security, flexibility, and efficiency that meets the needs of the most demanding IT environments.
