Remote Management Hardware

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a Remote Management device that will work with any brand of pc.

It looks like each of the big pc companys makes such a device, but they are only compatible with there own servers.

Do you know of a generic device?
Or would one of these work with a whitebox server?
Do any of the companys Cards work with whitebox servers?

Uhm. Not likely. The best you may be able to do is implement a KVM-over-IP solution that allows you to get console-access of the PC over a network, and then also get a managed power-bar that also has access over the network. This gives you console access to the systems, and also if you need to do a hard shutdown of the system, you use the managed power bar to cut the power to a certain port, and turn it back on. This assumes that your system BIOS is set to turn the system ON in the event of a power failure-and-restore.

Not to burst your bubble but "cheap" and enterprise hardware don't go together.
