Digi International announces extended capabilities of Digi Passport.
Digi International (Nasdaq:DGII), a device networking company, announced on Wednesday (11 April) expanded capabilities for its Digi Passport console server, a data centre management device that combines serial and network-based console management as well as remote KVM functionality.
According to the company, the new capabilities of the Digi Passport provide additional support for network-based management protocols.In addition to existing support for Advanced Lights Out Management (ALOM), Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) and Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), the Digi Passport now supports Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC), Integrated Lights Out (iLO) and Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH), which extends system management capabilities by providing a set of instructions to talk to both operating systems and hardware platforms through a common language.
In addition, the Digi Passport now supports Server Technology's CDU family of switched power management solutions for remote power management and control, and improvements made to Automatic Device Recognition mean that it can now determine the baud rate of connected devices, automate the port configuration process and autoconfigure freeKVM. Furthermore, freeKVM has been enhanced with the ability to support additional virtualised server platforms, the company claims.
No pricing details were disclosed.
