Kontron configuration management software OMVIU delivers powerful GUI to MicroTCA applications

by donpedro

Kontron announced the introduction of its new application ready MicroTCA Starterkit which is operational out-of-the box. The MicroTCA Starterkit includes the Kontron MicroTCA system OM6060 with AC-Power supply and an entry-level MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) AM4901 together with the new Kontron MicroTCA configuration management software OMVIU. Kontron OMVIU delivers a Graphical User Interface for fast and convenient system configuration. All Kontron MicroTCA systems are managed over IPMI. The MCH is in charge of this type of management: it checks electronic keying before booting-up the system; it controls the power, hot-swap cycles and fans. Also, IPMI allows monitoring the system, i.e. to check system event logs, monitor the health of the system and to take measures in case of problems. In order to facilitate system configuration over IPMI, Kontron provides the Kontron OMVIU graphical user interface. Kontron OMVIU is a Java based tool and allows remote monitoring and control of MicroTCA systems on any Java enabled platform. With Kontron OMVIU, all remote control and visualization can be done via mouse clicks, without the deeper level of knowledge and experience required for a command line interface (CLI).
