Important facts to consider when choosing a remote server management tool
As an IT administrator, lab or network manager, you need to access and control multiple computer systems and servers, perhaps widely dispersed, for routine maintenance as well as for real-time troubleshooting and repair. The remote server management tool you want to use must enable you to work quickly and securely to access any system regardless of type, brand, or location.
Remote server management, access and control tools fall into three general categories:
- Software-based remote access systems (e.g. RDP, VNC)
- Computer embedded service processors (e.g. iLO, DRAC and RSA)
- Out-of-band KVM-over-IP switches (e.g. Dominion KX III from Raritan and competitive products)
Fortunately, these tools have been deployed for several years, so there is an abundance of real life experience and data to draw upon.
There are four basic criteria to always consider when selecting a remote server management, access and control tool.
View this informative SlideShare put forth by Raritan to find out how to make the best choice of tool for safety, reliability, manageability and performance.
