KVM Overview
What is a KVM switch?
KVM stands for keyboard/video/mouse (otherwise known as peripherals). A KVM switch is a hardware device that allows you to control multiple computers from a single set of peripherals. A KVM switch is useful wherever there are multiple computers, but there is no need for a dedicated keyboard, monitor and mouse for each one. KVM switches are frequently used where multiple servers are placed in a single rack with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. The application of using a KVM switch: Large amount of servers to manage and control. Cost-sensitive solution (limited IT personnel but with a large amount of servers).

KVM Overview
Analog KVM switch
An analog KVM switch provides its user with a local connection to all supported devices. You have access to supported devices only when you are onsite. Analog KVM switches can be considered as a basic version of KVM switches.

Digital KVM switch


A digital KVM switch provides its user with a remote access via IP (i.e., web browser). You can access all connected devices from anywhere in the world at any time.
