What is the difference between iDRAC, IPMI, and ILO

Typically, proprietary management solutions such as those we see in this text provide greater integration with the hardware and often have better features (monitoring, logging, access) than a generic IPMI implementation.

These are all forms of out-of-band management. IPMI is a standard.
– iDRAC is a proprietary offering from Dell.
– ILO is the HP ProLiant variant.
– ILOM for Sun/Oracle.

In some cases, you may hear the terms used interchangeably.

The proprietary lights-out management solutions provide more integration with the hardware and often time have nicer features (monitoring, logging, access) than a generic IPMI implementation.
