  • Minicom Partners With Digi on Remote Access – Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of remote access, control, and management solutions for data centers, announced today that it is partnering with Digi International, providing them with remote serial access management. Minicom is integrating access and management of Digi Passport, Digi’s industry leading console servers, into AccessIT, Minicom’s remote access management system. Console servers offer a secure and auditable method for gaining access to network devices, either through a web-based interface, or a serial or modem connection when the network is down or unavailable.

  • Zonit Introduces ATS Switch – Zonit Structured Solutions introduced the Micro Automatic Transfer Switch (µATS), an ultra-small-form-factor (zero “U”) automatic power transfer switch for data centers. The Zonit µATS plugs directly into the back of single-power-supply devices (such as servers, routers, and switches). It features two power cords and circuitry that monitors the power quality of the main power source. If the main “A-source” power quality becomes unacceptable, the Zonit µATS automatically switches over and draws power from the “B-source,” thus keeping the device to which it’s connected up and running.
  • Anixter Introduces ipAssured - Anixter will launch its new infrastructure assurance program, Anixter ipAssured for Data Centers, during a special live event at the upcoming AFCOM Data Center World trade show. Anixter ipAssured is an infrastructure assurance program that includes the physical infrastructure products and best practices needed to support current and future data center applications.
