I've been playing around with IPMI lately and its working just great, but it just doesn't provide the remote console functionality that I'd like to see (since it's text-only and doesn't save a screenshot just before a crash).
DRAC seems interesting, but with my previous Dell experiences.. I don't even want to think about using Dell boxes. Supermicro has been excellent.
Does anyone know whether a DRAC card will work properly in a non-DELL box? I'm assuming it won't. If so, does anyone know of a proper alternative that will work in a non-dell machine?
I've yet to use any of their products, but Cyclades (http://www.cyclades.com) has some interesting out of band management products. We've recently started using IBM xSeries blade servers which have an awesome java console accessible from the bladecenter management webpage.
