The DX is a KVM matrix management switch that provides 24/7, out-of-band BIOS level management for the high density server room and data center. It is a secure, flexible, and supremely scalable centralized management solution. This switchenables up to four IT managers to simultaneously access hundreds of servers and network devices from any location.The DX system provides five functions in one unified solution: KVM switching and control, serial control, power management, user management and remote access. These functions are unified by Minicom's Advanced Integrated Management interface (AIM). AIM is a hardware-embedded, Windows(R)-like interface providing out-of-band BIOS level access, topology-independent viewing, and point-and-click management for all KVM and serial hardware in the server environment.The DX allows you to seamlessly cascade additional switch layers, so you can add hundreds of servers, all controlled from the same AIM interface. AIM ensures that users experience a transparent, topology-independent view of their servers and devices, without the complication of viewing the additional hardware or physical connections.The DX features user-name and password authentication including up to 32 user profiles and 4 levels of user access rights for increased protection. Additional security is provided by the ability to relate user names to their designated servers regardless of changes to their port configuration.
