New Avocent IPMI appliance extends management and control to IPMI servers in data centers

DSI5100 IPMI proxy appliance integrates OSA’s industry leading IPMI software to centralize secure monitoring and management of IPMI-enabled servers

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., January 18, 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.
