G&D’s RemoteAccess-CPU Closes Gap To The Cloud

Guntermann & Drunck (G&D), presents its newest KVM product – the RemoteAccess-CPU. The device lets operators integrate virtual machines into KVM installations to create hybrid infrastructures.

The new modules establish a connection between matrix systems and computers or virtual machines, which can be remotely accessed via network protocols (RDP, VNC, and SSH). This way, hybrid systems with real and virtual computer infrastructure can be optimally implemented.

The RemoteAccess-CPU supports video resolutions up to 2560 × 1600 @ 60 Hz (or 3840 × 2160 @ 30 Hz) as well as USB HID and embedded audio. After appropriate configuration, users can access any number of virtual sources and computers accessible via network protocols directly via KVM matrix system – uniformly and exactly as producers would access computers under their desk. Via G&D's KVM system, multiple operators can use the same RemoteAccess-CPU to simultaneously connect to and operate the same virtual machine.

“With the product, users get a maximum comfortable solution with a high level of user friendliness,” G&D explains. “Producers can simply select the desired source from a standardised select menu (target list) on the on-screen display – regardless of whether the computer is available in the server room, via network protocol or in the cloud. G&D’s KVM matrix controls the logic and takes over user administration. All connection data is forwarded encrypted.”

Currently, the network protocols RDP, VNC and SSH are supported. Support of further protocols will follow soon.
