In an enterprise KVM environment, you need high performance, freedom from limitations, and something to simplify managing hundreds — or thousands — of devices. You need Boxilla®, an enterprise KVM system manager housed in one easy-to-use platform.

Boxilla works in conjunction with the Emerald® KVM Platform and DKM to give you full monitoring and control of not just devices, but your entire KVM system, all across the enterprise. Control user access. Monitor device status. Proactively identify and address potential performance problems before they occur. Upgrade thousands of remote endpoint devices with one click, without ever leaving your seat. KVM management has never been easier.

Boxilla and Emerald Unified KVM can also be used to enhance your DKM system by extending it beyond private networks. When all three platforms work together, you can instantly reach any server on your network, enabling you to be more productive in your operations.

Black Box offers flexible endpoint licensing options that enable you to manage anywhere from 25 to thousands of endpoints, users or connections through Boxilla, helping you build an efficient KVM management system.

Example of Using Boxilla

KVM system management and troubleshooting: If a user is complaining about poor video quality, you can use the information Boxilla provides to see that the problem is caused by an overloaded network switch. Better yet, you can use the information Boxilla provides about bandwidth usage and device status to identify and address potential problems before they result in user complaints.


Your Boxilla command center dashboard gives you an instant snapshot of your KVM network. It shows you what users and devices are active and how much bandwidth different devices are using so you can see how your KVM system is performing in real time at any given moment. Drill-down menus let you dig deeper for more in-depth analysis. Chart key performance parameters such as bandwidth, frame rate, user changes, and power.
