    Avocent (DSR2020) or Lantronix (SecureLinx SLC16)?

    We are shopping for some good KVMoIP switches.

    Below is a must!
    • Have to be RELIABLE! (I've had bad experiences with Raritan.)
    • Price; as cheap as we can get!
    • 16 ports minimum (if price-per-port is good, 32 ports would be fine.)
    • Virtual Media support (we do a lot of firmware upgrades.)


    We are looking at the Avocent DSR2020, but it is not cheap. The switch itself can be found for around $3,750-$4,200.

    Since I've read much here about Lantronix, have anyone had good experiences with SLC series? The SLC16 unit is WAY cheaper than the Avocent DSR unit. It can be had for like half the price. Plus it will come with dual PSU.

    I take the dongle for both is about the same. $100 a pop.


    Or are there any other KVMoIP companies we should be looking at? Thanks for your advices.

    Having severs with customer data on it without proper monitoring is like having one night stand without using protections - eventually, there will be an 'oh s**t!' moment.

    We have about ~24 cages to deploy. If you know a vendor do large order discounts, can you PM me?

    Severs per cage are numbered between 7-20-ish. Thanks again.

    Pardon me... I think the Lantronix SLC16 is a "serial console" switch, not KVMoIP.

    Any other good vendors to Avocent?
