Enable unprecedented levels of automation and agility with cloud computing solutions.
All servers and systems
Looking for a simple and intuitive solution that allows you to access and manage servers in your data center? HPE Advanced Analog KVM console switches allow you to view and manage up to 256 rackmount servers through a single user interface. They utilize a local On-Screen Display (OSD) interface, accessed through a rack console such as the HPE LCD8500, that provides intuitive menus for accessing each attached server or serial managed device. HPE Advanced Analog KVM console switches support an optional USB Remote Access Key that allow you to upgrade to KVM-over-IP functionality, providing remote access and management via the On-Board Web Interface (OBWI). Standard rack mounting of the console switch will share 1U (1.75-inch) of front panel rack space with the rack console. However, each model can also be mounted in a "zero U" profile by mounting in the side rails of the rack.

HPE Advanced Analog KVM switches are designed to be used with HPE servers, storage, and networking products.
You can use HPE rack and power products with non-HPE IT equipment; however, when used with Hewlett Packard Enterprise servers, you are able to take advantage of various server and IP-based tools used for maintaining and managing all the equipment in the rack.
Don't spend additional budget on extended warranties for your rack and power infrastructure. HPE Pointnext operational services purchased for servers extend to our rack and power infrastructure products such as racks, power distribution units, uninterruptible power systems, and KVM console switches.
