High-Performance Virtual Machine Access
Virtual machine (VM) based server infrastructure is a well-established technology that helps saving costs for computer hardware and maintenance as multiple machines can be hosted on a single physical server. However, accessing these VMs through a Local
Area Network still causes bandwidth issues and often lacks performance and the "real desktop experience". Modern KVM extenders solve this problem by providing fast access with native HD or even higher resolutions and transparent USB support. Like
this, users, can work on a virtual desktop in real-time as if it was a physical PC without affecting an organization's regular data network.
Server Room and Server Farm Management
Server rooms are designed for computers, not for
people. They are chilly, dry, noisy places, often located out of the way and they also have strict security and fire control procedures. Whether an administrator needs access to a handful of servers, or to hundreds, a KVM extender can be interfaced
to a KVM switch granting access to all servers from a comfortable and convenient location.
Industrial Control and Monitoring
A computer collecting industrial data or controlling industrial processes may be located in an area
uncomfortable or hazardous to people. KVM extenders can be used to give control of these devices from a safe and comfortable distance. Fiber cabling may be used to provide protection against electronic emissions caused by production equipment.
