ATEN's Global BMC Management card provides
the easiest solution for platform management.
It is essentially your guardian for the
internal environment of your OS and hardware,
including Power, Temperature and Fan.
Targeted at systems with platforms which
require extreme security and stability,
the BMC card complies with the stringent
IPMI 2.0 compliant management standard.
ATEN is the only brand which supports firmware
AES encryption and virtual USB media. With
ATEN's Global BMC Management Module, customers
can obtain IPMI 2.0 capability with the
highest security level, the lowest cost,
and easiest integration with your existing
IPMI stands for Intelligent Platform Management
Interface. It defines a standardized, message-based
interface for easily management of a large
number of servers. It also defines standardized
records for describing platform management
devices and their characteristics.
IPMI provides an intelligent means for
extensive monitoring, control, and automatic
recovery of servers. The standard is applicable
across different server topologies and operating
systems, so it doesn't matter if you are
using Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac, or a
combination of these systems.
Also, because IPMI runs on different properties,
it still functions properly, even if the
server itself is running abnormally or out
of operation for any reason.
the foundation for intelligent platform
access, monitoring, logging and control
features that function independently from
the system processors.

ATEN's IPMI Firmware provide your system
an onboard chip solution.
ATEN's Global BMC Management card also provides
a simple way to control the server's power
status remotely. Manage the server's power
status with remote IPMI application with
no extra cost required. IPMI provides power
down, power up, power cycle and power reset
power management capabilities. With ATEN's
IPMI security algorithm, the power is yours
No Firmware Porting
ATEN's Global BMC requires no firmware
porting overheads; one firmware image fits
all platforms. All that the platform vendors
need to do is to refer to our design guide,
follow the IPMI Global pin definition, then...Presto!
Your platforms are properly certified as
Server Health Forecast
With ATEN's Global BMC Management card,
managing your servers is no longer a difficult
The management controller monitors the
sensors inside your server and reports any
abnormal conditions regarding the health
of your machine.
You don't have to wait for your server
to crash to realize the CPU Fan inside is
broken. Replacing a CPU Fan only costs you
a fraction of the price of having a server
down for even a day or replacing the whole
ATEN's IPMI Solution provides the customer
with state-of-the-art total IPMI solution.
With the IPMI alert system, MIS would know
if the server is going to have a problem
before the problem actually occurs.
on the Net
ATEN's Global BMC Management card provides
the most secure way to manage your server.
In order to protect servers from hackers,
we provide numerous security algorithms
to protect your system, including MD2, MD5,
RAKP-HMAC-SHA1, HMAC-SHA1-96, RAKP-HAMC-MD5,
HMAC-MD5-128, and AES-CBC-C-128 algorithms.
No Additional Hidden
ATEN's Global BMC doesn't charge any extra
costs on platform vendors. No minimal commitment
is required. It is simple and easy to calculate
your overall costs.
IPMI provides MIS an easy way to monitor
the servers remotely. MIS just needs to
setup the server alert table with ATEN's
Then, you just sit back, relax and the
Management controller will routinely check
the sensor status every half a second and
send error reports to MIS immediately via
internet if it detects an abnormal situation.
MIS can receive the alert
message through email or SMS. No need to
constantly check up on your system, your
system is now set up to do that for you,
