The next-generation Dominion KX II-832 features multi-user access at an attractive price per port for an 8-channel KVM switch. It provides eight remote users and two local user BIOS-level access and control of up to 32 servers. In addition to the standard local port, Dominion KX II-832 features a new extended local port that extends the local port, via CAT5 cable, beyond the rack to a control room, another point in the data center or to a Paragon II switch. Dominion KX II-832 works standalone or with the CommandCenter Secure Gateway centralized management appliance.
The KX II-832 offers the industry's highest video resolution - 1600 x 1200. Allow remote installation of software, file transferring and data back up with Universal Virtual Media. Offer the tightest mouse in the industry, reducing installation time with Absolute Mouse Synchronization. Come standard with dual power and dual Gigabit Ethernet with automatic failover. The Dominion KX II provides dual stack IP networking with simultaneous support of IPv4 and IPv6. Feature Virtual KVM Desktop, a common browser-based user interface that supports the industry's widest range of operating systems and browsers. Plus, it includes the industry's first and only browser-based local access.
Next generation hardware architecture
Dominion KX II is a true next generation switch with an advanced hardware and software architecture. This innovative design enables new levels of KVM-over-IP performance, reliability, usability, compatibility and security.
High performance, next generation video hardware
Dominion KX II's KVM-over-IP engine uses Raritan's next generation technology, providing users with virtual at-the-rack performance. Next generation features include ultra-fast screen refresh, 1600 x 1200 remote resolution, advanced color calibration and per server video optimization.
Dual power supplies with failover
For increased reliability and redundancy, all Dominion KX II models have dual AC inputs, dual power supplies and automatic failover to support the redundant power distribution used in enterprise data centers. If a power supply fails, the customer will be notified via front panel LED, SNMP TRAP, log message or via the administrative manager.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with failover
Dominion KX II provides high availability with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for redundancy. Should one Ethernet switch or interface card fail, Dominion KX II will automatically failover to the other port and continue operating.
Remote network access/KVM over IP
Dominion KX II extends the Dominion KX's award-winning video compression circuitry, the industry's highest performing KVM-over-IP technology. Users can access Dominion KX II from anywhere on the network (LAN, WAN, Internet, dial-up), allowing administrators to troubleshoot, reconfigure, reboot and even power cycle servers remotely.
Industry's first browser - based local console port
The Dominion KX II features the industry's first browser-based local access. With a common, browser-based interface and full management functionality at the local port, the Dominion KX II provides a consistent user experience that is easy to learn. In addition, convenient hot-key switching between servers is now supported.
Universal KVM client access - anytime, anywhere
The Dominion KX II provides KVM access through the industry's broadest and most flexible range of operating systems, platforms and browsers, with no additional client license fees or cumbersome software licensing.
Intelligent Mouse Synchronization
Most KVM switches require the customer to manually adjust the mouse motion and mouse acceleration settings for all connected target servers for each KVM user. With the Dominion KX II's Intelligent Mouse option, no such manual configuration is required for many servers. The system can automatically adjust to the server's mouse settings. This further enhances the Dominion KX II's plug-and-play operation.
Full screen video display
With the Dominion KX II's full screen video display, users appear to be directly connected to the target server. The user views the full video display from the target server without window borders or toolbars.
Flexible video scaling
In many instances, the user would like to "scale", i.e., stretch or compress, the target server's video display to fit the display window on the client. With the Dominion KX II's flexible scaling, the user is not restricted to fixed-size windows, but can drag the window border to the desired size, including small thumbnail views.
Fast video switching
Once the Dominion KX II's advanced video resolution detection has calculated a target server's video characteristics, connections to the server occur almost instantaneously. This gives the Dominion KX II user immediate access in most cases to all connected servers.
Transparent keyboard handlingIn The Box
Transparent keyboard handling means that virtually all user keystrokes are sent to the target server and not processed by the desktop client. This key feature of the Raritan Virtual KVM Desktop obviates the need for most keyboard macros and allows the user to directly interact with the target server with a higher level of connectivity.
