The device allows highly available server control, maintainance, failure recovery or remote support, regardless the geographical location of the administrator, just as being onsite. Even in case of network failure the server can be accessed at any time out of band via ISDN, modem dialup or a second separate service LAN. Either for a single server or using a large matrix KVM Switching System serving a large number of machines. Using LARA literally faces no limits. The unit allows local control of Keyboard, Video and Mouse as well as multiple users remotely at the same time.

The comprehensive security concept complies to nearly every possible application in remote system access using SSL. LARA guards every kind of data transfer with the industries most secure encryption algorithms. A unique user certificate can be generated, established and signed at a trust centre of choice and then uploaded onto LARA to efficiently prevent "Man-in the Middle"- attacks or spying. A sophisticated user management allows up to 255 individual user profiles witch can be consequently fine tuned at group and single user level. Rights can be assigned, changed or taken at any time remotely. Irreversible data logging provides complete and unbroken documentation on any remote or local event.

LARA neither needs complicated configuration at the server side, nor at the local client station. LARA supports accelerated input devices as well as non- accelerated. It can display all common VESA plots in text and graphic mode up to a resolution of 1280 x 1024. LARA operates completely server OS independent and does "not eat" CPU time at all. At the client side is just a JAVA enabled standard Web-browser needed to fully control and access remote servers.
