It has become an easy task to manage all the servers in your racks locally from a single workstation. Thanks to the console drawers for racks, there is no longer any need for traditional, space-hogging combined workstations with screen, keyboard and mouse. You connect directly to your KVM switch via a pull-out KVM drawer of height 1U (standard rack height of 4.44 cm). All the servers in one or more IT cabinets can then be accessed from a single screen, keyboard and mouse.
Raritan has two drawer models: a 17-inch and a 19-inch version. Both possess a VGA or DVI-D input. The latter supports high-resolution video displays (1920×1080 for the 17" version and 1280×1024 for the 19" version). They are compatible with the Raritan KVMs (Dominion KXIII), as well as with other brands.
The Austin Hughes KVM drawers have additional features with wide screens (from 21" to 24") and the "Dual Slide" design which enables you to open the screen independently of the other equipment. What is more, in addition to their DVI-D and VGA inputs, the Austin Hughes drawers also offer the option of HDMI compatibility.
