Dominion KX II-101 V2 is a next-generation KVM-over-IP device that eliminates the blocking factor inherent in switched KVM architectures to provide anytime, anywhere access and BIOS-level control of a single server, via a dedicated IP address

The KX2-101 V2 provides the secure access and control of a full-featured KVM-over-IP switch in an inexpensive, portable, nonblocking, palm-size package that gives you secure remote access and control – especially for servers outside the data center. Designed as a zero-U, one port, multiuser device, it provides nonblocking, BIOS level, IP access and control – anytime, anywhere.

Productivity, efficiency and security in a “zero-U,” single-port device:

  • Palm-size and highly portable, the Dominion KX II-101 V2 can be mounted vertically or horizontally on the side of a rack, making it ideal for small, remote locations with a limited number of servers
  • Multiple Dominion KX II-101 V2 devices can be installed in a data center, lab environment or remote offices to provide fully non-blocked, switchless access by any user to any server – even if the OS is unavailable – reducing downtime, MTTR and labor costs
  • Dominion KX II -101 V2 features Absolute Mouse Synchronization™ , which reduces installation time and sets a new standard for mouse synchronization
  • Virtual media gives users the ability to transfer files for patches and upgrades from any location, speeding up the upgrade process and reducing travel costs
  • Dominion KX II -101 V2 also provides a greater level of security than other remote access methods, feature-rich management functionality and the highest quality video available, all over an IP network
