Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) has launched the RemoteAccess-CPU, designed to allow operators to seamlessly integrate virtual machines into KVM installations to create hybrid infrastructures.


G&D: The RemoteAccess-CPU allows integration of the physical and the virtual

It can establish a connection between matrix systems and computers or virtual machines, which can be remotely accessed via network protocols (RDP, VNC, and SSH - support of further protocols will follow soon.) This way, hybrid systems with real and virtual computer infrastructure can be optimally implemented, G&D says.

The RemoteAccess-CPU supports video resolutions up to 2560×1600 @ 60Hz (or 3840×2160 @ 30Hz) as well as USB HID and embedded audio. After appropriate configuration, users can access any number of virtual sources and computers accessible via network protocols directly via the KVM matrix system – uniformly and exactly as producers would access computers under their desk. Via G&D’s KVM system, multiple operators can use the same RemoteAccess-CPU to simultaneously connect to and operate the same virtual machine.

With the RemoteAccess-CPU, G&D believes users get a solution with a high level of user friendliness. Producers can simply select the desired source from a standardised select menu (target list) on the on-screen display – regardless of whether the computer is available in the server room, via network protocol or in the cloud. G&D’s KVM matrix controls the logic and takes over user administration, and all connection data is forwarded encrypted.
