New models in Avocent® Universal Management Gateway product family enhance real-time data collection capabilities

Huntsville, Alabama - Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, has introduced two new models in the Avocent® Universal Management Gateway family. Available globally, the Avocent Universal Management Gateway is a core component of Emerson's data center infrastructure management (DCIM) portfolio, combining KVM, serial console, rack PDU, embedded service processor and environmental management into a single appliance.

"The Avocent Universal Management Gateway gives us a multi-purpose appliance in our racks," said Carl McMillon, director of data center services at Duke University. "Its integration with Avocent DSView(TM) Management Software enables remote access management and console management, as well as real-time data collection. It places at our fingertips the data we need to make more informed decisions in managing our infrastructure."

The appliance reduces the complexity of deploying various hardware systems for alerts, telemetry, environmental sensors, and device access and control that leads to reducing costs and increasing overall data center efficiency. "In this economy, it's more important than ever that we act as good stewards of the institution's dollars," McMillon said. "The Avocent solution will allow us to not only reduce our overhead costs, but also clearly demonstrate those savings to management."

The new models being introduced, the Avocent Universal Management Gateway 4000 and 6000, add support for KVM and environmental sensors while expanding the support for serial consoles and embedded service processors. These models also significantly increase the amount of real-time data the appliance can collect (up to 10,000 data points per minute) to enable effective DCIM.

"When combined with DCIM software, this multi-functional device delivers comprehensive, real-time infrastructure management capabilities for the data center," said Steve Hassell, president of the Avocent business of Emerson Network Power. "And, because it supports access and control for all IT equipment across the data center, the Avocent Universal Management Gateway gives customers the option to use what fits their model and change equipment on the fly without having to worry about ripping and replacing appliances."
