Emerson Network Power Announces a New Data Center Solution to Deliver Secure and Remote Virtual Infrastructure Management

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity, today introduced the Avocent Virtual Advanced Console Server 6000 (ACS v6000), a new tool for secure, remote data center and out-of-band management of virtual assets. The Avocent ACS v6000 offers a complete, centralized management solution that grants authorized users access to enterprise resources, keeping virtual assets available 24x7 while enforcing strict security measures.

All of the next-generation functionality of the popular Avocent ACS 6000 has been encapsulated in a virtual appliance to enable dependable connectivity and management of virtual IT assets, such as virtual machines running Windows EMS, UNIX, Linux and Solaris. It also enables the end user to manage these virtual assets in the same manner as physical assets such as routers, switches, public branch exchange (PBX) telecommunications equipment (DSU/CSU) and serial power devices. The introduction of the Avocent ACS v6000 expands this capability for the first time to virtual machines, allowing IT managers to further leverage their virtualization investment while maximizing the existing offering. 

“As the industry continues to realize the benefits of virtualization, customers are looking for a way to remotely manage both their physical and virtual assets,” said Gene Mulligan, senior vice president of global operations for the Avocent business of Emerson Network Power. “The Avocent ACS v6000 takes console management to a new level by combining the access and control for both physical and virtual servers into one system.”

Organizations interested in hybrid console management can also now run Avocent ACS v6000 alongside traditional ACS devices in their data centers. This hybrid approach helps maximize IT asset productivity, while consolidating distributed devices within the environment and reducing operational costs.

Avocent Virtual ACS 6000 is available now. More information on this product can be found at http://www.avocent.com/.
