MRV Communications announced the In-Reach LX-4048S, a secure console server designed for remote management duties. The LX-4048S is driven by the In-Reach Operating System (IROS), a Linux-based OS tuned for performance, security and reliability. With up to 48 ports available, In-Reach is designed to manage and control large data centers and clustered computing environments. In-Reach offers a secure remote site presence, with serial connectivity, console, power and alarm management capabilities contained in a single box. Internal modem options also are available in all port densities. All models use 32-bit RISC embedded processors. Security features include per-port password protection, RADIUS, PPP dial-back and various other options.

The AlterPath ACS1 is a compact single-port console server used to connect serial devices to a TCP/IP network. Typical applications include branch office management, retail automation and IP enabling of legacy serial devices. Dual PCMCIA slots allow for enhanced functionality with support for many interface cards, such as Ethernet, modem (V.90, GSM, CDMA and ISDN) and wireless LAN. The ACS1 uses PowerPC dual CPUs to transfer data from a 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface to the RS-232/RS-485 serial interface and back, enabling communication between the serial device and the network. The ACS1 supports SSHv2 (Secure Shell) for security in data connections.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
