We’re proud to bring you the second issue of our newsletter. In this edition, we’ll share details about Alnitech’s Servers & Infrastructure and teach you how you can remotely access your Supermicro servers via the BMC web interface and via the IPMItool.

The recent report on 1.2B login credentials stolen also had us thinking on how we can create better passwords so we’ve prepared a feature on password best practices.

Intel is also releasing their third generation of Xeon E5-2600 this quarter. Find out what specs experts are predicting the new line-up will have at the last section of this newsletter.

Password Best Practices

Identity theft is one of the biggest issues faced when securing data. Keep your data out of the hands of cybercriminals. Usernames and passwords are the first, and sometimes final, gatekeepers to your data—passwords, especially, need to be strong and withstand the initial onslaught of a malicious attack.

Supermicro Server Remote Access via IPMItool

The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) serves as a bridge that relays system information mostly for monitoring purposes. Supermicro servers’ IPMI can be configured using BIOS through a VGA console, IPMICFG (Supermicro proprietary tool), or an open-source utility called IPMItool.

Learn how to remotely access your Supermicro Server via the IPMItool here.

Remote Control of Supermicro Servers via BMC Web Interface

IPMI is typically handled by a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC), which resides inside your server. BMC has access to things like fan speed, power control, system event logs, serial-over-LAN (SOL), and a fully functional graphic KVM console, which is typically the Java™-implemented iKVM.
