Controlling your network from a remote location is rather essential for any organization these days. A console manager can help administrators of these data centers effectively manage their remote network equipment sites. When implementing a management system, it is important to create a system that works specifically with your organization. You need to have the right tools to work with your devices whether you simply want to power them off and on or perform other maintenance chores that will not only allow you to troubleshoot but also prevent many problems before they start.
At the very least, every management system should have the capability of turning devices on and off from a remote distance. Sometimes machines may simply freeze or otherwise malfunction in such a way that it only requires restarting. These kinds of systems are fairly simple and easiest to implement. You can also look into an automatic transfer switch to provide backup power for your devices since power surges and outages can cause damage to your machines. The power switch is only one method you can use to help prevent problems.
You can also consider equipping your console manager system with more advances switches that not only provide backup power but sense other kinds of malfunctions. Some of these switches will only send you an alert when a problem occurs or is about to occur. However, there are also some switches that will take action to correct the problem without you ever having to prompt the device. These kinds of switches may cost more than those with simpler functions, but the investment may save you costs in the long run.
You should also think of other ways your remote data center can help you save on expenses. For instance, you may want to make sure you are not wasting energy, so you can plug utilities into your network. You can make sure lights and other devices are not on while they are not in use thus wasting energy and costs. For these types of functions, your administrators may want to use devices that can be accessed through mobile means such as smartphones and tablets and well and a PC or other Internet interface.
The console manager does much more than make your life easier. You can run your network smoothly and make sure you are not losing time, money and productivity due to downtime caused by a network failure. However, it is important that you get the right management system for your organization. Your system needs to be user friendly enough for all administrators and secure enough that only the administrators have access. Your network management system should help you solve problems, not cause you more of them.
