    Which dedicated servers have remote control?

    Which dedicated server providers offer remote control, right from the boot screen, like remote KVM over IP?

    Those that offer it as standard, and those that offer it as additional option.

    Dell PowerEdge 2850
    IBM xSeries (all models)
    Compaq Proliant (most serious models)

    You can call Dell and order the DRAC IV for the 2850's for 200 bucks.

    Most providers allow you to rent it for 24 hour periods.

    I have seen fasthosts.co.uk offering something like that as standard.

    Is that different from the Dell DRAC?

    I think such things should be standard with all servers.

    A dell DRAC is very similar to KVM/IP. In the end they both provide the same function. This would be nice if it was standard, but go look up the prices on KVM/IP and dont forget to add in that every server would need two switch ports, the setup, support, etc... and you'll see why it's a value added service.
