Remote Management: how it secures and gives you more control over your Bare Metal Servers

bareMetal_USP_controlLeaseWeb is always striving for the best customer experience and we believe that putting you in the driver’s seat is a key factor in this.

Recently we launched a new free feature for our Bare Metal and Dedicated Server products which gives customers secure access to their server’s IPMI interface. The IPMI interface is a very powerful tool that can be used for many things, especially:

  • For debugging issues if your server becomes unreachable
  • Installing an operating system which LeaseWeb does not offer through the Customer Portal
  • Customizing your OS installations

All these actions are made much easier by giving access to the IPMI interface.
