iEZman and One Key Recovery: Combining the Power of Remote KVM Control, System Recovery and Backup Management
Blue Screen of Death. And you are 500 miles away. This is an IT manager's nightmare. For the first time in industrial computing, IEI Technology Corp. combines the power of remote KVM control with simplified system recovery and backup management. IEI has developed a series computing platforms based on Intel® Q57 and QM57 chipsets with Intel® AMT 6.0 featuring IEI iEZman for KVM function management. IEI has joined with Symantec to build a new system recovery and backup application called One Key Recovery. All IEI products can be remotely controlled via IEI's iEZman and One Key Recovery.
What is iEZman?
The IEI iEZman application provides out-of-band KVM function allowing full control of keyboard, mouse and viewing the video output on the remote system through the hardware-based Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0. The video output on the remote system is always viewable even when there is a BSoD (blue screen of death) or missing disk.
iEZman allows a remote user, such as a support person, to remotely control and perform administrative tasks through a graphical user interface in Windows. All functions can be managed through this single interface after password verification. iEZman provides IT departments with remote client management, OOB (out-of-band) diagnostics and assets tracking regardless of system power or OS state to help reduce TCO and improve productivity.
- Power Management - To power the remote system on, off or reset
- Schedule Power Management - To schedule the systems to wake from a sleep state or turn off at a particular time
- Remote Access - To boot remote PCs from a local CD-ROM, floppy drive or ISO image, or boot into the BIOS
- Group Management - To sort remote PCs into groups for easy monitoring and control
- Patch Management - To apply patches to remote PCs
- Alert and Events - To issue and alert when system problems occur
IEI SBC products featuring iEZman are the PICMG 1.3 PCIE-Q57A and Mini-ITX KINO-QM57A.
The IEI PCIE-Q57A is a standard PICMG 1.3 form factor SBC supporting 32nm Intel® Core™ i3/i5 and 45nm Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processors. The PCIE-Q57A excels in data and video transmission throughput with the on board Intel® Q57 chipset. A system maximum of 8 GB of DDR3 SODIMM 1333/1066MHz memory will satisfy the requirements of the most data-intense, multitasking applications.
With Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0 built into the Intel® Q57 chipset, IT managers can remotely diagnose and repair problems, as well as provide added security for the PCIE-Q57A. Data security and availability are enhanced by six SATA II interfaces with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 functions.
The IEI KINO-QM57A is based on the 32nm Intel® Core™i7/i5 processor and supports two DDR III SO-DIMM memory modules up to 8GB. The Mobile Intel® QM57 Express chipset allows the playback and transmission of high quality video. The chipset includes embedded Gigabit Ethernet capabilities. The KINO-QM57A has an integrated graphics engine to support up to 1080p HD video playback, and the on board Intel® 82577LM GbE LAN controller offer high-speed network transmission rates. The display output interfaces include two HDMI ports, a VGA port and 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS option. The onboard graphics can support two grouped video signals on two sets of displays, or the same signal broadcast over all three outputs.
The IEI KINO-QM57A is good for public surveillance security applications. The Intel® 82577LM GbE LAN controller supports Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0 and enables remote control and monitoring functions over the network.
IEI One Key Recovery Solution
The unique IEI One Key Recovery solution includes exclusive technology to recover and backup the operating system with the simple press of a key. A recovery image CD with IEI official license sticker ships with every IEI single board computer, embedded system, and panel PC. It includes the system recovery software developed by IEI with Windows PE 2.0. The recovery image can be used to create a full system backup and restore from system failures. There is no need to buy additional backup and recovery tools.
All migration tasks can be performed remotely from a central management console reducing the costs associated with a physical visit. Neither specialized IT staff, nor consultants are required to implement the system imaging and data migration. Thus, IEI One Key Recovery simplifies the imaging and migration process and is time and cost saving. Please note that IEI One Key Recovery works on IEI products only. A warning message “You are an illegal user” appears when attempting to run it on a non-IEI product.
The iEZman and One Key Recovery solution bundled with IEI products using the Intel® Q57 or QM57 chipsets and Intel® AMT 6.0 is your smart choice for remote control management, system backup and recovery.
