Peppercon LARA - KVM remote administration

IP remote administration

LARA is the first manufacturer-independent KVM over TCP/IP system for servers and existing KVM systems. With the help of the LARA you extend your existing KVM Switch system to allow access over TCP/IP, and for its administrators to remotely manage attached servers using only a web browser. LARA allows complete remote administration of your server banks, including hard RESETS and power Off/On. LARA does not require any software to be installed on any target server.

LARA

LARA allows you to remotely control, configure and manage your servers regardless of where you are located. Access is possible over TCP/IP over via dial in on ISDN. It is possible to use LARA on either individual servers or connected to KVM switches to allow KVM over TCP/IP access to a bank of servers. A keyboard, monitor and mouse can also be connected to the LARA to allow local access as well if desired.

Security

The comprehensive security concept of LARA fulfills most requirements. LARA encodes each data packet using standardised algorithms. LARA supports the use of signed certificated to aid in the prevention of attack from malicious sources. An intelligent management system permits up to 255 individual user profiles configurable to allow varying rights of access and also provides irreversible logging of usage and logins.

Compatibilty

LARA needs neither on the side of the server nor on the side of the control station additional configuration expenditure. LARA works with all PS/2-Mice and accepts all well-known VESA screen modes resolution up to 1280 x 1024 pixels. LARA works independently of the operating system of the server. On the client side only a java-enabled web browser is necessary.
