Data Center
Planner software provides
data center management
with accurate and complete
information about where
devices and equipment
are located, their current
capacities and projected
growth.

to add even more capabilities
to the Avocent Data

by the Avocent DSView

software, each asset can be
remotely accessed from the

from anywhere for the initial
setup and configuration or to
diagnose any availability or
performance issues.
