New Avocent IPMI Appliance Extends Management and Control to IPMI Servers in Data Centers

HUNTSVILLE, AL (PRWEB) January 20, 2005

Avocent Corporation (NASDAQ: AVCT) today announced a new addition to the DS Series, the DSI5100 Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) proxy appliance that provides secure monitoring and management of IPMI-enabled servers. This cost-effective solution allows out-of-band access to embedded sensors on servers and target devices without the installation of new tools. IPMI data provides a means for IT administrators to remotely monitor and control system health, and control power without the need for external power supplies.

DSView® 3 software provides a user-friendly single interface for managing IPMI, KVM, serial and external managed power connections. The DSI5100 appliance integrates Avocent market-leading embedded IPMI products with its existing data center products to ensure administrators experience a high degree of quality and compatibility when managing today’s servers from vendors like Dell, IBM and HP.

“Avocent continues to find ways to help IT administrators protect their investment,” said Bill Neiland, vice president of product marketing. “Combining Avocent-enabled server and appliance products offers the best return on investment for managing the data center rack.”

“Avocent provides the leading server manufacturers with embedded management technologies such as IPMI, KVM and Virtual Media,” said Dave Perry, senior vice president, OEM division. “The combination of our software and this new appliance future-proofs a data center since administrators can easily add connectivity to IPMI-enabled servers as their infrastructure grows.”

More about IPMI

IPMI defines a common and secure interface to how vendors monitor their system hardware and sensors (temperature, voltage, fan, etc.), control system components (power supplies, blades, etc.), log important system events (chassis intrusion, system reset, etc.) and allow administrators to remotely manage and recover failed systems. It is typically implemented at the silicon level, on a baseboard management controller (BMC), or processor, and is independent of the CPU and OS.

More about DSView 3 software

The DSView 3 management software system is the IT industry’s first fully redundant, replicating solution for network administrators. With the DSView 3 software system, administrators can have secure browser-based control of servers, serial devices, DSUs and IPMI-enabled servers attached to any Avocent DS Series appliance.

Those who want to have the greatest level of digital signage content design control simply select the Advanced level on the administrator portal and they are presented with all of the design options for the particular page type."

StrandVision's enhanced user interface controls the design options that users see when they work with their StrandVision Digital Signage pages. Beginners see a less extensive set of choices, which makes page administration simpler; Advanced users have more choices and more control. The system allows Beginner users to modify pages created by an advanced user without disrupting higher-level settings. This also allows the user to temporarily access Advanced digital signage content features without having to stay at the more feature-rich level.

For instance, for the "Paragraph with Photo" template page, Beginners are offered a selection of fields for entering a title, paragraph content and photo. Intermediate users can also add a subtitle and direct the system to use the full digital media player screen, while Advanced users can play with color options, photo position, add Quick Response (QR) code fields and adjust text alignment, fonts and effects.

Compact USB 32-Channel Optically Isolated Input/Relay Output Module Ideal for High-Speed Digital Control

SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2006

ACCES I/O Products, Inc. is pleased to introduce its latest embedded digital I/O board packaged in a small, rugged, industrial enclosure - Model USB-IIRO-16. Featuring 16 Form C (SPDT) electromechanical relays and 16 optically isolated digital inputs, the unit is a very dense, portable, embedded solution for digital monitoring and control in any PC or embedded system with a USB port. The unit contains an internal, removable screw termination board with onboard removable screw terminals to simplify wiring connections. The USB-IIRO-16, like the PC/104 and PCI versions from ACCES I/O, is excellent in applications where on-board relays are required and inputs must be isolated such as in test equipment, instrumentation, and process control. The OEM version provides just the board without the enclosure and internal screw termination board and is ideal for a variety of embedded OEM applications.

What makes the OEM option unique is that its PCB size and mounting holes match the PC/104 form factor (without the bus connections). This allows our rugged digital board to be added to any PCI-104 or PC/104 stack by connecting it to a simple USB port usually included on-board with embedded CPU form factors such as EBX, EPIC, and PC/104 especially important since many newer CPU chipsets do not support ISA and have plenty of USB ports. Future stacks will be using the extremely fast PCI Express bus which is essentially overkill for simple digital monitoring and control. The USB-IIRO-16 OEM board can also be added into many pre-existing standard PC/104 based systems and enclosures while the standard unit with its tiny enclosure and cable-less screw termination board provides portable connections to laptops for the mobile test market.

Key features of the USB-IIRO-16 include:
