The device's built-in IPMI controller monitors the sensors inside servers and reports any abnormal health conditions such as a faulty CPU fan before it becomes a bigger problem," said Miranda Su, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, ATEN Technology. "An ounce of prevention goes far with this new IPMI KVM and it will play a pivotal role in maintaining data center continuity before issues arise."
