If you are like most IT techs and are dealing with a very limited amount of space in your server room, the last thing you need is to have to deal with multiple monitors, keyboards and mice for each rack. Not only does this end up getting confusing, but unless you are blessed with more room than you know what to do with, you should be using a KVM switch.
What Is a KVM Switch?
The KVM switch is a simple switching unit that was designed with this specific application in mind. This switching unit allows you to connect multiple servers into one side of it and then a single keyboard, mouse and monitor on the other side. This way you can use this single set up to monitor and service each of the servers connected to it and save yourself time, effort and space.
