With the 2161DS, server administrators can monitor and control a virtually unlimited number of servers in almost any number of locations with ease. Increasing productivity, the 2161DS helps ensure that IT resources are fully optimized - allowing the business to reap maximum returns from critical technology investments. The 2161DS is a multi-platform solution that connects up to 128 servers over a single IP connection. With its pay as you grow scalability, the 2161DS can connect multiple users to multiple servers. The 2161DS, a KVM OVER IP™switch, also allows server administrators to retain their analog KVM connections wherever they deem it appropriate. So, instead of having to choose between the new KVM OVER IP or a traditional KVM switch, they can enjoy the best of both worlds.
