MacMall Part #: 381779
Manufacturer Part #: P2-UMT1664M
Paragon II Main Switching Unit is a secure, intelligent, non-blocked control unit that connects users to servers. Its stackable architecture provides the industry's highest port density making it ideal for large data centers with densely packed racks.
This solution has superior KVM switch technology that reduces equipment costs and optimizes space utilization. This generation of Paragon provides the highest levels of manageability, security, and superior video quality to simplify the management of business-critical data centers.
You can add, relocate, and hot-swap components without disruption as your data center needs change. You can also access the switch from inside and outside the data center, and globally over IP. The KVMs may be deployed individually or integrated with any of Raritans enterprise-wide data center solutions including CommandCenter.
The Raritan II features plug-and-play auto-configure installation, the industry's broadest range of port devices, and flash firmware upgrades. Paragon Manager Software gives you a single, consolidated view of all connected devices, and it lets you add, remove, or edit users and manage devices. From this application you can perform system-wide firmware upgrades, and log and audit all system events.
Integrated Power Management means that you can power on, power off, or recycle power to servers and other attached devices. You can also define security levels for individual users on a per-outlet basis, and get the status of each connected power unit.
Features and Benefits:
Compact form factors All Paragon II Main Switches come in 1U to 2U form factors and can be rack mounted. The small form-factor saves expensive rack space and minimizes electrical consumption by lowering HVAC provisioning needs. Paragon II User Stations double as monitor stands and occupy zero foot print on the desktop.
Highly scalable architecture Paragon IIs architecture allows up to 10,000 attached devices to be connected in a single logical deployment.
Stackable expansion units Paragon II stacking units allow expansion of each switch to attach up to 128 devices per switch with a single cable. Stacking simplifies cabling between ‘tiers by replacing pass through cables with a single expansion cable.
Choice of User Stations Users can choose from three types of User Stations to connect to the Paragon II; the switch can operate simultaneously with the analog User Station (P2-UST), Enhanced User Station (P2-EUST), and the User Station with integrated IP access (P2-USTIP) for remote access to Paragon II-connected servers.
Multi-platform CIMs Computer Interface Modules support USB, Sun and PS/2 for connectivity to various servers and other data center devices.
P2-ZCIM Multi-platform ZCIMs (PS/2, USB/Sun and non-Sun/USB) allow users to connect up to 42 mixed platform servers on a single Cat5 chain. This is ideal for static environments that require less powering down of servers and moving of CIMs.
Non-blocked access Paragon II provides 2, 4, 8 or 16 users unblocked access to connected servers via the P2-UST or P2-EUST.
Optional IP access with the P2-USTIP The P2-USTIP user station with integrated IP access provides optional IP access for up to 2 users for anytime, anywhere browser-based access to Paragon II-connected servers.
Hardware independence Paragon II allows different servers such as Windows, Sun, Compaq, HP and UNIX to be connected to the same switch. It also allows serial device connectivity via Raritans AUATC adapters.
High video resolution The Paragon II Enhanced User Station provides resolutions greater than 1600 x 1200 at distances over 700 feet, and 1280 x 1024 at distances up to 1000 feet, at refresh rates of 60Hz, 75Hz and 85Hz.
Manual skew compensation Users can manually adjust the video clarity per server. Skew settings can be saved for use the next time the user logs onto the system.
Automatic skew compensation When used with the P2-EUST, the new P2CIMs automatically adjust skew compensation to achieve the best video quality. (Manual skew compensation can still be done with older CIMs to override automatic settings in the new CIMs.)
Integrated power management Provides a single, consolidated view and control of Raritans Remote Power Control units connected to Paragon II. It automatically displays power strips and Paragon II targets on connected ports. Administrators can monitor status and power on/off/recycle power to remote equipment including servers, remote alarm monitoring, HVAC, and other critical data center equipment.
Paragon Manager administrative software GUI software that drastically simplifies data center management by consolidating administration of all attached equipment; gives a single view of all connected devices; captures and saves system events for auditing purposes; allows firmware upgrades over the network, associates power outlets to connected devices and maintains system profiles.
Network-based firmware upgrades Simplifies firmware updates by allowing administrators to push upgrades over the network – saving time and money.
Backward compatibility Paragon II is backward compatible with existing Paragon equipment for investment protection and continued ROI.
Integration With Raritans CommandCenter Secure Gateway (Via P2-SC) Multiple Paragon II switches can be managed centrally and seamlessly through Paragon II System Controller (P2-SC) and CommandCenter Secure Gateway (CC-SG).
