This white paper explores the relevance of KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) technology in modern IT infrastructures, comparing it with software-based remote access solutions. It discusses the advantages of KVM over software solutions and introduces a hybrid approach that combines the reliability of hardware with the flexibility of software. Key learnings:
KVM offers zero-latency transmission and fast switching times, providing an optimal performance that outpaces software-based remote access.
KVM solutions don't require additional software or drivers, making them ideal for environments with strict software policies.
KVM networks typically have lower bandwidth requirements compared to software solutions, ensuring efficient operation without impacting other processes.
Advanced user access and management features in KVM systems support multiple user modes and comprehensive system monitoring, offering greater control than software-only solutions.
