Black Box KVM and AV/IT Management Platform Now Supports DKM KVM

Black Box has announced enhancements to Boxilla, an enterprise-level KVM and AV/IT management system. A core new feature of Boxilla 1.1 is the ability for DKM users to seamlessly access both physical and virtual servers across an IP network.

Boxilla is an integral part of Black Box’s robust services portfolio of end-to-end solutions for mission-critical control room infrastructure, smart office configurations and digital retail technology. Designed to support other Black Box products, Boxilla offers a comprehensive and centralised command centre that manages and deploys high-performance KVM, allowing the compamy's DKM matrix switch systems to grow beyond private networks by connecting across IP networks to access physical or virtual servers in the same way the user accesses servers directly connected to DKM today. 

Some Boxilla’s key elements include a centralised system management, which features a real-time, user-friendly dashboard that manages authentication, access control, accountability, troubleshooting and device monitoring; improved security, which detects potential breaches and quickly identifies refused or unauthorised login attempts; and instant performance updates, which offers a snapshot of the entire KVM system so users can immediately assess performance, including bandwidth usage and device status.



Boxilla is designed for enterprise-level deployments where you have large-scale applications with multiple endpoints, ideally 50 or more. Boxilla’s ability for configuration, monitoring, streamline and automate the communications between KVM devices becomes highly valuable. This may be environments such as: emergency rooms, classroom, conferences rooms, emergency call centers (911/112 services) and traffic control rooms.

Black Box has also promised that future enhancements to Boxilla will enable it to support other premier Black Box products, including DCX, MediaCento, Coalesce and ControlBridge.
