Lantronix Debuts SecureLinx SLP Remote Power Manager for Data Centers

12/9/2004 - Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX), the innovator in remote data center management technology, introduces SecureLinx SLP – the power management system that gives system administrators 24/7 control over the power to their business-critical data center equipment from anywhere in the world.

Through a secure web interface, the SecureLinx SLP enables IT professionals to remotely control power to servers, switches, routers, telecom equipment – anything in a rack – as if they were in the same room. With SLP, administrators gain the ability to remotely monitor power loads, reboot systems, power up devices in sequence and much more. The device saves time and money by eliminating the need to send personnel to the data center to attend to power management problems or perform routine server management functions.

“At under $1,000, this amazingly simple, affordable tool is something no data center should be without,” said Chris Humphrey, vice president of marketing for Lantronix. “For example, a data center manager in New York can, after reconfiguring a server, installing a firmware upgrade or diagnosing a problem remotely, power up any device in the Los Angeles data center on demand. Whether you can afford a big IT department or not, you can control power to your data center 24/7 with a SecureLinx SLP.”

SecureLinx SLP combines intelligent power distribution, management and load-measurement for remote equipment and branch AC circuits into a single, easy-to-use device. The ability to remotely monitor power consumption helps maintain safe loads on existing power circuits, and alerts administrators when and where additional power circuits are needed. The SecureLinx SLP is extremely easy-to-use due to its flexibility at all levels – from easily-accessed international, plug-style connectors, to mounting options to software. With SSH for the command line interface and SSL support for web access, the SLP features the highest level of security of any power management product on the market.

To prevent overloads caused by a sudden in-rush of current when equipment is powered up, the SLP provides the ability to power up devices in a pre-determined sequence. This capability ensures a more steady power draw, and gives system administrators the option to turn on certain devices before others. It provides a dependable safeguard for IT equipment, and greatly reduces downtime and service costs. The SLP is also the only product in its class to offer a single unit combining in-band (Ethernet) and out-of band (serial, modem) power management.

The SecureLinx SLP is available in eight and 16-port models through Lantronix authorized resellers. For more detailed technical information, pricing or to find an authorized solution provider, please visit the company’s web site at or contact Lantronix at 800-422-7055.
