Layer 1 start inside the box remote presence modular building blocks

Hardware instrumentation, power control and health monitoring: IPMI

Full OS/application and BIOS/OS access: KVM

Remote Virtual Media for remote USB storage: vMedia

Scriptable command line to management features: SMASH

Interoperability access / transport: WS-Management

Layer 1: Start ‘Inside’ The Box Remote presence modular building blocks

Analog / Digital KVM

Service Processor

Firmware i.e.,

Integrated Remote Presence

Rack Servers

Towers

Blade Servers

Telecom Chassis


Layers 2 3 extend up the stack add appliances consoles

Layers 2 & 3: Extend ‘Up The Stack’ Add appliances / consoles

  • Support Advanced Services: Translation between layers, standards-based interfaces (SMASH CLP/ WS-MAN), local discovery, staged updates , alert correlation, multicasting …

Differentiate

Differentiate!

  • For Silicon and Design Manufacturers

    • Outsource standards development to experts

  • For Hardware Vendors and Integrators

    • Design your solutions around a 3-layer stack for ‘Intelligent’ IT Management

    • Start with modular building blocks and add rack level appliances

  • For ISVs in Management Markets

    • Consider using rack appliances to broaden reach, increase security, consolidate management

  • All - Support WS-MAN, SMASH and DASH!
