American Megatrends Announces Latest Enhancements to AMI Remote BIOS™ Management Solution

Thursday: July 18, 2019

NORCROSS, GEORGIA - American Megatrends (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and BMC firmware, remote management tools and utilities, is pleased to announce the latest round of enhancements and new features for Remote BIOS.

 Remote BIOS is a comprehensive management solution for systems without an onboard BMC which uses the in-band network to perform key administrative tasks during pre-boot, including firmware configuration and cloning, firmware update, remote diagnostics, detailed system inventory and reports. Building on this core group of capabilities, the latest set of enhancements to AMI Remote BIOS add server user interface (UI) improvements, along with Remote Console and OS deployment capabilities.

Enhancements to the server UI come directly from feedback provided by AMI Remote BIOS users, combining the same innovative features already available in AMI Remote BIOS with an improved user interface for increased performance and usability. The new Remote Console feature allows users to view post codes and provides remote access to BIOS Setup without the need for an onboard BMC. This translates to even greater remote control over a UEFI client system when in Setup or UEFI Shell. Finally, the new OS deployment capability gives users the ability to remotely perform unattended installation of Linux® or Windows® based operating systems.

“We developed our AMI Remote BIOS solution to provide many of the pre-boot and remote management capabilities typically available to systems with an onboard BMC via our MegaRAC® and Aptio® V firmware products. Because AMI Remote BIOS is targeted at any BMC-less system requiring remote management, this product is eminently suitable for an incredibly wide number of different compute systems across a very diverse range of vertical markets. Our latest enhancements now make AMI Remote BIOS an even more powerful and attractive solution for many types of applications,” said Sanjoy Maity, CEO of American Megatrends.
