Canadian Web Host, Cirrus Tech, offers KVM over IP to Intel Dedicated Server Clients
Toronto, ON – April 10, 2008 Cirrus Tech Ltd, a Canadian Web Hosting Company, is offering “complete control’s of its dedicated servers to clients through KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) over IP technology. By purchasing all its Intel Dedicated Servers with KVM over IP hardware pre-installed, Cirrus Tech is providing this feature at a low cost with minimal set-up time. With KVM over IP
added on to any Intel Dedicated Server Plan, clients will be able to have remote access to their dedicated server to install and run applications, and troubleshoot all the way down to a BIOS-level.
Ali Mirdamadi, Product Director at Cirrus Tech, explains,”Connecting through Windows Remote Desktop, SSH, or other remote console software is sufficient for most of our dedicated server clients. However, we have clients that require access to their dedicated server to a hardware level. Our KVM over IP solution allows for this level of access.”
About KVM over IP
KVM over IP technology allows IT administrators to manage their dedicated server even when remote access software is no longer functioning. As long as the dedicated server is powered, administrators will be able to have BIOS-level access to it. They could even reboot their server and watch the booting process from a web browser if they wanted to.
It is as if the user’s keyboard, monitor (video), and mouse are all physically connected to the dedicated server. Without KVM over IP, a user will have to go through the hosting company’s technical support if they cannot resolve their issue through a remote console. Also, web hosting companies will charge a significant fee to visit their data center if a client wants access to the physical hardware location. KVM over IP eliminates the need to be at the physical location of the dedicated server to configure or troubleshoot hardware.
Some additional benefits of KVM over IP:
- View details of any stop error messages (Windows Blue Screen)
- Configure Ethernet settings without accessing your control panel
- Reset your server remotely
- Partition your server after initial OS is installed
- Configure firewall routing settings so that you’ll never be “Locked out” of your server
Cirrus Tech offers KVM over IP on all its Intel Dedicated Server Plans as an add-on service on a monthly or per-use basis:
