Avocent Universal Management Gateway Infrastructure Management Appliance

The Avocent® Universal Management Gateway appliance is the first data center device that enables true, real-time, integrated monitoring, access and control across IT and facilities systems in the data center. The appliance makes it possible for data centers to execute a unified approach to infrastructure management, resulting in greatly reduced cost and more efficient management and control.

The appliance combines the functions of KVM over IP, serial console over IP, rack PDU, SP and environmental management in a single chassis. When used in combination with Avocent® DSView™ management software, the solution provides remote access and control to any device that can be controlled by any of the consolidated functions.
