As an IT administrator, Lab, or Network Manager, you need to access and control multiple computer systems, perhaps widely dispersed, for routine maintenance as well as for real-time troubleshooting and repair. The tools must enable you to work quickly and securely to access any system regardless of type, brand, or location.
Remote server management tools fall into three general categories: Software-based remote access systems, Computer embedded service processors and Out-of-band KVM-over-IP switches.
While these categories merely describe how the tool itself is physically deployed, it is critical to understand the inherent advantages and limitations of the tools in each category in getting the job done.
