IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) provides us with a Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)-like browser-based console that allows you to remotely control and manage your server when you don’t have access to Secure Shell (SSH) or RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) — or when the operating system is not responsive. When using IPMI, it also provides the right tools to mount an ISO file on your server. An ISO file takes it name from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9660 standard. It also ca be called an ISO image, and it is a type of specialized archive file that is intended to contain and maintain an exact copy of the data that was originally stored on an optical disc. The primary purpose of an ISO file is to contain a replica of the content of the optical disc in a digital format, effectively emulating the presence and functionality of a physical optical drive. This digital representation allows for convenient access and utilization of the stored data without needing the physical disc, offering a virtual alternative to traditional optical media.

Customer Access with IPMI

Remote Desktop Protocol or SSH shell are great for managing your server remotely. But what if you need to do something outside the operating system, like changing network settings or adjusting the BIOS? Those tools cannot help you because they depend on the server’s operating system to function. Wouldn’t it be great to have KVM-like console access to your remote server? With IPMI, you can get browser based access independent of the operating system.
