At one of the manufacturing plants I deal with, they have a PC based controller in a pump house and it always seem to go on the fritz in the middle of the night. When I schlep my body down there, it’s usually a Windows crash (this system stopped updating with NT 3.51). Cycling power does the trick. It dawned on me that if I installed a Lantronix Spider Duo with the optional power control unit, I could take over the keyboard, video, and mouse remotely from my easy chair, figure out what’s going on, and fix it (including reboot as necessary). It’s fully external so even if the blue screen of death is up, I’m still in control. Life’s a lot easier with a Spider in the pump house.
Compact KVM-over-IP Plus Local Access for Distributed Server Management
The Lantronix SpiderDuo KVM-over-IP is the newest in the popular Spider family of remote KVM solutions. Spider Duo provides secure, remote KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) over-IP capabilities as well as transparent local access.
The Spider Duo is ideal for those who need local access, as well as the flexibility of KVM-over-IP in a single integrated solution. Its palm-sized, “zero-U” design is perfect for space-constrained applications. What’s more, Spider Duo requires no additional software and allows full BIOS level control of the host system.
Secure Remote Management
Spider Duo makes administration a breeze. Using integrated Virtual Media, users can transfer files, perform upgrades, install patches, redirect local drives and perform full system upgrades by ISO file. Coupled with the optional single port PCU (power control unit), authorized users can also initiate system reboots over the network. Spider Duo allows complete local, plus remote management of the host machine anytime, from virtually anywhere. It provides reliable, secure access to servers located in data centers, kiosks, regional offices, campuses, ATMs, Point-of-sale (POS), training centers, or test and development labs.
