Out of band Systems Management in enterprise Computing EnvironmentDivyanshu Verma
Out of band systems management provides an innovative mechanism to keep the digital ecosystem inside data centers in shape even when the parent system goes down. This is an upcoming trend where monitoring and safeguarding of servers is offloaded to another embedded system which is most likely an embedded Linux implementation. In today’s context, where virtualized servers/workloads are most prevalent compute nodes inside a data center, it is important to evaluate systems management and associated challenges in that perspective. This paper explains how to leverage Out Of Band systems management infrastructure in virtualized environment.
