StarTech SV231USBLC Overview

The 2-Port Laptop to Server KVM Console Adapter from StarTech provides users with KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) control of their servers, directly from their laptop. KVM technology is a virtualization infrastructure for the Linux kernel that enables it to create and run virtual machines, but KVM technology is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X systems as well.

This adapter enables a convenient solution for diagnostics, maintenance, and updates for small-scale server applications, giving users full access to servers located in small spaces or congested server racks. It's also well suited for environments where a fixed-installation console server isn't feasible, such as in a server closet or a wall-mounted server rack. This adapter also removes the need to wheel around a server-room crash cart or install a rackmounted LCD console.

Using the included software, users will be able to view their servers on their full laptop screen, without scroll bars, and reduce the viewing windows to maximize productivity between server and non-server work. Also supported are file transfers between laptops and servers, which helps with server software updates and patches. Additionally, video support enables users to record server activity and use later for verification or instructional purposes.

StarTech's 2-Port Laptop to Server KVM Console Adapter is equipped with a mini-USB Type-B (female) console interface, two USB Type-B (female) and two VGA (male) host connectors, one VGA (15-pin Female) input, and one USB Type-A (female) input. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux and operated using an included 100-240 VAC power adapter. Also included are two mounting brackets, two 2-in-1 USB and VGA cables (10'), a USB Type-A to mini-USB Type-B cable, and a USB software key. This item is protected by a limited two-year warranty.
