Avocent DSR4010 (DSR4010-AM) Features and Benefits

  • Only Avocent's DS Series provides integrated control of all major sever platforms as well as serial-based devices. The OSCAR interface lets you easily name and locate servers. DSView uses industry standard TCP/IP (Ethernet) connections so that you can easily troubleshoot, or even reboot a server, from the NOC, from your desk or from any location in the world. Plus, DSView provides advanced reporting and audit logs.
  • With Avocent's DS management software, which includes DSView and DSWebview, you benefit from convenient access to any connected device from any location in the world.
  • DSView client software provides secure click-and-connect control of any connected device, using IP connections. DSWebview provides secure browser-based access over the web. Avocent browser-based or client-based access offers flexibility that lets you manage connected devices from any location you choose.
  • The DSRIQ CAT 5 cabling provides connectivity from the DSR4010 to the server. With its CAT 5 design, the DSRIQ significantly reduces cable bulk in the rack and is well suited for high-density installations. Plus, the DSRIQ's built-in microprocessor retains server names, which makes installations and reconfigurations much easier.
  • Click-and-Connect with DS Management Software:  The DS management software is the cornerstone of the DS series and integrates control of servers and serial devices. DS management software includes the DSView client, DSAuth server, DSAdmin and DSWebview. With DSView, you can access all of your data center devices using a standard IP connection. The DSWebview interface provides secure, browser-based access to virtually any data center device via Avocent's DS Series product suite. Avocent's DSView interface provides secure click-and-connect control to any connected device, using IP connections.
  • For added user security, Avocent's DSAuth user authentication software stores permissions, topology and per-device contact information for the DS Series. It also performs third party authentication during connection to the switch.

Note: DSView and DSAuth are sold separately. See ordering details for more information.
