As schoondoggy says. Mostly. :)


IPMI is done with a chip on the board, and handled separately from the CPU. It's nice, exact that the remote console is usually handled via java... and with a self signed cert.

Intel vPro aka, Intel AMT depends on the motherboard *and* CPU for support. It uses VNC. It requires RealVNC Viewer Plus to do the power "button" and virtual media stuff. But it costs $100 for the Viewer Plus license.


Another thing, IPMI uses a dedicated NIC that isn't visible to the OS, and is why these boards tend to have 3 NICs. Intel's AMT shares the NIC and tends to have only 2. 

And sharing the NIC isn't necessarily a good thing. There is a known issue with the shared NIC being downgraded to lower speeds. Which requires rebooting to fix.



I've used both (IPMI on an ASRock RACK miniITX board, and intel vPro on a Supermicro board, model in signature). I can't say I like one over the other, really. I like that IPMI is free, but I hate using java.
