Pangea Consulting Completes Raritan Paragon Certification Training and Enters Partner Program
San Jose, California, March 11, 2001 - Pangea Consulting today completed the Raritan Paragon training program earning them the distinction of being a "Paragon Certified" Authorized Reseller. During this certification they reviewed the history and growth of traditional KVM products and gained valuable in-depth knowledge of Raritan's innovative server management system - Paragon. Through the use of hands-on workshops and presentations, Pangea engineers were guided through the Paragon experience.
Paragon incorporates many innovations, including a totally modular, scalable design that utilizes intelligent components interconnected with easy-to-manage, single Category 5 UTP cable. Paragon's KVM Matrix Switching Unit, built in a 1U chassis, provides for connection of 32 computers and 8 user stations, up to 1,000 feet apart. The system is expandable to enable 16 users to manage 2,048 computers. Server access and management through Paragon is performed independent of the network, so there is no impact on server or network performance. Users can access and control any combination of computers, such as PC, Mac, Sun, DEC Alpha, RS/6000, HP9000, SGI, USB, and ASCII devices.
"Raritan KVM switches have been selected by many of our clients building new data centers and e-commerce server farms for years. Their MX4 switches have long been considered the best of breed. With the introduction of high bandwidth Category 5 and Category 6 cabling, Paragon is well positioned to take advantage of the large installed base of Unshielded Twisted Pair data cable plants," said Michael Tharenos, president and CEO of Pangea Consulting.
