Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson, recently introduced the Avocent Virtual Advanced Console Server 6000 (ACS v6000), a new tool for secure, remote data center and out-of-band management of virtual assets.
The Avocent ACS v6000 offers a complete, centralized management solution that grants authorized users access to enterprise resources, keeping virtual assets available 24×7 while enforcing strict security measures.
All of the next-generation functionality of the popular Avocent ACS 6000 has been encapsulated in a virtual appliance to enable dependable connectivity and management of virtual IT assets, such as virtual machines running Windows EMS, UNIX, Linux and Solaris.
It also enables the end user to manage these virtual assets in the same manner as physical assets such as routers, switches, public branch exchange (PBX) telecommunications equipment (DSU/CSU) and serial power devices. The introduction of the Avocent ACS v6000 expands this capability for the first time to virtual machines, allowing IT managers to further leverage their virtualization investment while maximizing the existing offering.
Avocent Virtual ACS 6000 is available now.
