Irvine, Calif. – November 1, 2012 – Lantronix, Inc.

“The new virtual SLM addresses the ever-increasing need by IT professionals to maximize hardware resources and infrastructure space by doing more with less – especially when it comes to limited physical location on a rack or in a server room,” said Gino Khoe, director of IT for Razor U.S.A. – a global leader in new categories of rides and action sports, including the popular Razor® Scooter. “As with all departments, our IT team is constantly on the lookout to reduce operating costs. By running virtualized software on a host hardware platform, we are able to maximize efficiency. With the latest iteration of the SLM appliance, Lantronix proves it can continue to evolve and produce products that fill our needs without compromising on features or functionality, but by adding to it.”
