The Importance of IPMI

IPMI is a very useful tool that you can use to help you administer your dedicated server. IPMI stands for Intelligent Platform Management Interface, although most people who have ever made use of an IPMI probably do not know that, most people just call it IPMI. One of the things that an IPMI is most often used for is remote reboots and power cycling of dedicated servers. As part of regular dedicated server maintenance it is a good idea to reboot at lest once a month, your IPMI gives you the convenience of being able to do that from anywhere with internet access. There are times when your dedicated server may become unresponsive, it is at these times that you will need remote console access. Once again, your dedicated server IPMI will prove to be a valuable tool in these situations. Once you log into your IPMI you will be able to launch an IP-KVM console session. This will pop-up a Java window that will remotely show you what is happening on your server, as if you were virtually standing in front of it with a keyboard, video monitor, and mouse plugged in. IPMI is an important tool for dedicated server administration. It includes the ability to quickly perform server reboots at anytime and from anywhere that has internet access; including your smartphone. IPMI also features remote KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) ability, so your server administrator will always have access, even when remote desktop or SSH is not an option. PingPipe recognizes that our clients want control over their dedicated servers, and with this in mind we provide IPMI access at no additional charge. Our solid support services are always available if you ever have questions, and IPMI is there for you as an added level of control you will have over your dedicated server day-to-day administration.
