Large networks could have potentially hundreds of console servers connected to thousands of servers, switches, and routers across multiple sites. To simplify management and respond more swiftly to issues, many network administrators rely on central management
software. With this technology, even very large networks can be managed via a single portal from any web-enabled device.
Black Box’s console servers are managed using Virtual Central Management System (VCMS). VCMS offers centralized, secure, end-to-end OOB management and proactive alerting regardless of remote WAN or LAN health status. The VCMS portal allows you to
manage large numbers of console servers over a wide geographic area, even globally, from a single screen. You can search managed devices by name, no matter how they’re connected, and sort results by geography, application or managed device type.
VCMS gives you the ability to pinpoint failed devices and address issues quickly, minimizing downtime and the impact on your operations.
Another advantage of VCMS is that it offers scalable administration and automation, from day one provisioning to routine operations and disaster recovery. VCMS can be used as a central management point for configuration changes, firmware upgrades, and
