Performance and scalability
The AF618A HPE KVM Switch is designed to provide high performance and scalability, making it a suitable option for large data centers or server rooms.
One of the key features that contribute to the switch's performance is its ability to support up to 64 servers. This allows for a large number of servers to be managed and monitored from a single location, increasing efficiency and reducing the need for multiple KVM switches.
The KVM switch also supports multiple video resolutions, including 1080p and 4K, ensuring that users have a clear and high-quality display when switching between servers. This is particularly useful in environments where high-resolution video is required, such as video editing or medical imaging.
The switch also supports hotkey switching, which allows users to switch between servers quickly and easily using hotkey commands. This helps to increase productivity and reduce the time needed to access a specific server.
The AF618A HPE KVM Switch also supports USB peripheral sharing, allowing users to share USB peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, and storage devices, between servers, reducing the need for multiple peripherals and saving space.
The switch also includes a built-in KVM over IP (KVMoIP) feature that allows the switch to be managed remotely, allowing users to access and control servers from anywhere.
The KVM switch has a high-availability design which is important for mission-critical applications where uptime is crucial.
Security and data protection
The AF618A HPE KVM Switch includes various security features to help protect against unauthorized access and ensure that sensitive data is protected.
One key feature is password protection, which requires users to enter a password before they can access the KVM switch's web-based interface or Telnet/SSH/Serial Console. This helps to prevent unauthorized access to the switch and the servers it controls.
The KVM switch also uses secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect data transmitted over the network. SSL encryption helps to protect against eavesdropping and tampering of data, ensuring that sensitive information is protected while it is being transmitted.
The switch also includes a feature called Role-based access control (RBAC) which allows the administrator to assign different levels of access to different users, controlling who can access the switch and what they can do.
The switch also includes a feature called Secure Boot which ensures that only authorized firmware can be loaded on the switch. This helps to prevent malware or malicious firmware from being loaded on the switch and compromising its security.
Additionally, the AF618A HPE KVM Switch supports the use of Secure KVM cables, which are specially designed cables that include encryption technology to protect data transmitted between the switch and the servers it controls.
The AF618A HPE KVM Switch is a rack-mountable device that is designed to be installed in a standard 19-inch server rack. The switch has a 1U form factor, which means it is 1 rack unit (1U) high, and can be installed in a standard server rack with other equipment.
The switch has a compact design, which makes it easy to install in a rack and does not take up too much space. The switch's small size and rack-mount design make it a suitable option for data centers, server rooms, and other environments where space is limited.
The switch's front panel includes LED indicators that provide status information, such as power status, network status, and video status. The front panel also includes buttons for switching between servers and accessing the switch's settings.
The switch's rear panel includes ports for connecting servers, peripherals, and network cables. The switch also has a power connector and a serial console port for connecting to the switch via serial console.
