HP Anyware Remote System Controller

The HP Anyware Remote System Controller offers IT administrators a single dashboard, with the ability to launch a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) session and perform out-out-of-band management tasks such as pre-boot access, BIOS updates and re-imaging from anywhere.

The company said that IT administrators can use it to manage a fleet of devices, access secure system information, receive reports and develop insights, to optimize their infrastructure to resolve issues before they affect users.

The HP Anyware Remote System Controller is expected to be available this spring. Pricing will be available closer to product availability.
