KVM over IP Dedicated Servers

What is KVM over IP?

KVM over IP devices use a dedicated micro-controller and potentially specialized video capture hardware to capture the video, keyboard, and mouse signals, compress and convert them into packets, and send them over an Ethernet link to a remote console application that unpacks and reconstitutes the dynamic graphical image. This KVM over IP subsystem is typically connected to a system's standby power plane so that it's available during the entire BIOS boot process. These devices allow multiple computers to be controlled remotely across the internet.

This means that you can perform maintenance tasks even if your server isn't functional.

This is included free of charge in all Dedicated Servers from Startup Series upwards with the Add-on Package enabled.
