Plan Smart: Learn How Black Box Can Help You Futureproof Your Data Center

Whether you are building your data center from the ground up, or just adding a few components, Black Box offers ideal product solutions.

In an existing Data Center, KVM switches and other equipment from various manufacturers are often found around the cabinets. Different systems require different access methods and are rarely compatible with each other. We can bring these systems together under a single point of access, providing unified control of all servers independent of manufacturer. These solutions can provide remote as well as local access, and provide an excellent way to create a new, or update an existing, data center infrastructure.
