Avocent’s DSView 3 management software provides data centers with a secure, centralized management solution for both physical and virtual IT assets. DSView 3 software enables administrators to access, diagnose and modify any managed device from any point on the globe, regardless of the health or status of the OS or the network connection to those devices.
DSView 3 software enables a "lights-out" data center operation where physical access to the data center is reduced to the minimum. The DSView 3 software hub and spoke architecture also provides backup/failover capabilities to maintain accurate user permission rights and detailed event logs across multiple sites and user groups.

DSView 3 software also provides custom views for each user, graphical report building and task automation tools, along with a holistic view of your network assets no other system can equal. Administrators can ease and increase speed of deployment with Appliance Configuration Templates, pre-configured with theircommon parameters.
Categorized devices by "Sites", "Locations", "Department" to sort devices by physical location.
Label your target devices with custom fields to enable filtering/searching of devices. For example, label your devices by hosted applications such as "SAP CRM", "Corporate external website", "Marketing Department Share Point" enable user to find devices in a much more intuitive manner.
Accessible & Out-of-band design
The DSView 3 software “hub and spoke” architecture allows for high availability and distributed, consolidated access across locations. The out-of-band features onthe DSView 3 software allow administrators to diagnose and repair problems even when gateways, routers or other IP connectivity is down.
Data centers evolve. Whether you’re migrating to blades, experimenting with SANs or simply trying out a new router, DSView 3 software can help you maintain control by integrating with new technologies and providing a consistent management interface, regardless of your underlying infrastructure. DSView 3 software offers deep, pre-built integration with HP® software, NetClarity, Uptime Devices,VMware and others. It also provides an API to integrate third-party applications, tools and systems.
Secure & Auditable
DSView 3 software easily integrates with your existing security infrastructure, authenticating against your internal or external standards-based services. All trafficis encrypted and the detailed activity logs provide a critical audit trail for issue resolution and regulatory compliance. By minimizing the need for local access in the data center, the remote management capabilities allow you to physically lockdown sensitive machines for greater peace of mind.
