The real question is, when are they actually going to ship
product, and stop hyping their vaporware?
The two links from the page at
<http://developer.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/ipmi.htm> appear to
be fully buzzword-compliant (especially the Flash animation), but
they both seem rather content-free with respect to whether or not
IPMI-compliant systems would allow you to access all the standard
BIOS configuration and boot process information.
Implementing IPMI might allow vendors to provide this capability,
but that seems to be about it.
I had not seen this one before. Anybody have any real-world
experience with it, or seen a working demo?
