Trends in Data Centre Management, Monitoring and Infrastructure

Data Centre Webinar Series

Data centres have come a long way in a short space of time. The relaxed attitude towards power usage and real estate has disappeared, replaced by the need to reduce costs, whilst providing higher levels of bandwidth, availability and secure management access.

Providing customers with secure but easy to use access to their servers and other devices is critical. But where should you start? What solutions should you consider? How can you protect crucial IT assets from downtime? And how can everything be deployed for maximum benefit?

Black Box experts possess knowledge and expertise that's second to none and are uniquely qualified to work with you to design the data centre solution that's just right for your application and customer. We would like to share our knowledge with you. Join us for a series of insightful webinars that will shed light on different aspects of data centre technology.

Selected Solutions Featured in the Webinar

Secure Serial Console Servers

Remotely Access and Manage Servers and Network Devices

Console servers give you secure out-of-band access to local and remote networks via the devices' serial console port. They're an easy and affordable way to monitor and manage your remote network infrastructure from just about anywhere. If a critical piece of equipment goes down, you can take care of it quickly without downtime and the expense or hassle of having to go onsite.

AlertWerks™ Environmental Monitoring System

Real-time Monitoring to Protect Mission-Critical IT Equipment

The AlertWerks™ system enables you to actively monitor the conditions in a data centre or anywhere else where critical assets need to be protected. With proper environmental monitoring, you're alerted when any condition reaches your pre-defined parameters that could have an adverse effect on your mission-critical equipment.

Data Centre KVM

Access and Manage Local and Remote Servers from a Central Location

Data centre KVM switches enable access to a variety of target devices, such as servers, CPUs and other sources. 19" rack-mountable, they are designed to give you a high port density in only 1U of valuable rack space. Access your servers directly at the rack, and/or remotely over CATx- and IP-connections.

Active Optical Cables (AOC)

Improve Cable Speed and Distance without Sacrificing Compatibility

AOC cables span multiple technologies like fibre cabling, SFP transceivers, network, audio/video, USB, and more. They offer high bandwidth connections up to 100Gbps, are small in size making them ideal for HD applications and feature immunity against EMI/RFI interferences.
