Console Servers

What we did (and it fits our needs)

     SeaLevel (SeaLink Familly) with a Zotak.

     We got both Win/Linux/BSD debugging/monitoring station (with 2 
1Gbps, 1 MGMT 1 Mirror) and up to 16 serials ports in 1U.

     ( With some DYI )

     I'm sure you can get a better density if you check with them.
