American Megatrends Announces Out-of-Band BIOS Configuration through Redfish

Monday: April 18, 2016

NORCROSS, GEORGIA: - American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, is proud to announce out-of-band BIOS configuration compatible with DMTF Redfish.

DMTF's Redfish API platform was created by DMTF's Scalable Platforms Management Forum as an open industry standard specification designed to provide end users simple and powerful, yet scalable management platform hardware. To meet the needs of end users, Redfish allows users to develop solutions that combat homogenous interfaces and reduced functionality. Redfish utilizes a combination of REST, JSON and OData and serves as a secure replacement for IPMI-over-LAN.

AMI's OOB (Out-of-Band) Firmware Management delivers extended management solutions through the adoption of Redfish between BIOS, BMC and Extensible Management Architecture (EMA). AMI OOB Firmware Management provides complete Redfish support and allows for the consistent exchange of information between the BIOS and BMC. AMI has been diligently working on providing an OOB firmware solution for datacenter solutions providers such as QCT (Quanta Cloud Technology).

"Out-of-band BIOS configuration is an important feature for our datacenter customers," said Mike Yang, general manager of QCT. "Accessing server management controllers through the network lets datacenter administrators perform remote BIOS setups for many racks of servers simultaneously. It is precisely the kind of efficiency and agility that our customers are looking for."
