Raritan Paragon II

Raritan-matrix-kvm-system

The Paragon System from Raritan is a Matrix KVM Switch with units for up to 16 users and 64 computers. This flexible system offers the possibility to expand via stackable units to support up to 10 000 servers without the loss of ports and with a reduction in cabling installation.

How it works

Paragon II distributes KVM switching and control functions across modular, intelligent components:
Main Switching Unit - 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.
Stacking Unit - A cost-effective, space-saving expansion unit that allows you to easily add up to 128 non-blocked ports per switch with 90% less cable than cascading.
Stacking units are compatible with Paragon II models UMT832M and UMT1664M.

These units:

  • Reduce the burden of multiple cables between tiers
  • Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by more than 30%
  • Save up to one-third of rack space and HVAC resources

User Station - Designed to fit conveniently under the user's monitor, the Paragon II User Station includes an intuitive On-Screen User Interface (OSUI) for easy access to attached servers. Connects to USB, Sun® and PS/2®.

Computer Interface Modules (CIMs) - Provide 'keep-alive' keyboard/mouse emulation at the server. Just plug a CIM into a server's keyboard, monitor and mouse ports and connect it to Paragon II with a single UTP (Cat5/5e/6) cable. New small and slim Paragon II CIMs provide the added convenience of firmware upgradeability without interrupting the installed configuration.
