Raritan® - a brand of Legrand and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions—announces new features for its Dominion® SX II to meet the concern of their customers regarding Java Pops-ups. With the new features Raritan enables their Indian customers to manage their remote serial devices more easily and securely.

The Dominion SX II, Raritan’s serial console server, now provides Java-free serial-over-IP access and control to remote serial devices with RJ-45 serial ports — such as routers, switches, blade servers — and Raritan iPDUs. With the SX II’s new Java-free Serial Client, users can remotely access and control IT equipment using smartphones and tablets. The SX II’s new automatic DTE/DCE detection feature helps devices to connect the SXII with low-cost Cat5 cables.

Sanjay Motwani, Regional Director, Raritan Asia Pacific, said, The wide range of advancement and innovation in SX II is to address one of the crucial pain points of every data center manager—that of efficiently managing serial devices remotely. The new SX II is more powerful, secure, reliable, easy to use and can control serial devices anytime and anywhere.

As part of Raritan’s intelligent infrastructure portfolio, the products provide full life-cycle cabinet management, including delivering real-time insights into operations, issuing early warnings of potential issues, providing secure access and control capabilities to make repairs and improvements from anywhere and distributing power optimally and reliably to IT equipment. “We continue to focus on customer needs by enhancing our intelligent portfolio with easy-to-use, responsive tools that improve operations and support next-generation data center platforms,” says David Wood, Raritan Director of Power Solutions.

Organizations that employ smart infrastructures and dynamic infrastructure management solutions experience fewer problems such as data breaches, physical security breaches and running out of IP addresses, according to a recent study conducted by global research firm International Data Corporation (IDC).1

“As data centers will bear the burden of digital transformation initiatives in the coming years, addressing challenges through investment in smarter data center resources — such as intelligent cabinets and DCIM — will be critical to success,” says Jennifer Cooke, IDC research director - Datacenter Management, who spearheaded the special study.
