Peppercon plans ASMI-compatible card for Intel motherboards

Embedded KVM developer Peppercon AG plans to launch a daughter card for remote server management that is compatible with the Advanced System Management Interface technology Intel Corp is about to launch on its motherboards.

By CBR Staff Writer

Zwickau, Germany-based Peppercon, which is now a division of US remote management technology vendor Raritan Computer Inc, develops key-video-mouse, KVM, technology for use over an IP connection to monitor and manage servers. Unlike its parent, which makes and sells standalone KVM switches and serial console servers, Peppercon focuses on providing KVM-over-IP components for embedding into other companies’ equipment.

ASMI is a spec for standardizing the electrical and mechanical interfaces into a 120-pin connector that system management components such as KVM devices can use to interconnect with the motherboard. In addition to device-level technologies like KVM and media redirection over IP, ASMI also supports higher-level management specs such as Intelligent Platform Management Interface, an industry standard interface for monitoring hardware and sensors for temperature, fans, voltage, and so on. It also supports Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware, which provides consisted scripting of standard server tasks through a standardized command line.

A spokesperson for Peppercon said the ASMI-compatible card will fit into an Intel motherboard and will be launched in sync with Intel’s official launch of ASMI.

Peppecon is not the only KVM player working on integrating ASMI. Earlier this week, Avocent Corp, the market leader in the space, announced it was working with Intel to integrate ASMI into its next-generation remote server management modules.
