The HP ProLiant iLO Advanced System Management Controller makes use of a manufacturer provided device driver to deliver to the underlying operating system environment support for tools that helps the network administrator to effectively manage the host network environment. These tools include utilities that allow for the monitoring of various server components, logging of system events, and as well as the implementation of the HP Insight Management Agents. This particular hardware component assists in the execution of one of the most vital functions in a network environment which is remote server management. This particular functionality is a must for virtually any type and size of network environment to ensure that responsiveness and efficiency are met. This function is achieved with the lights-out remote management technology provided by the HP ProLiant iLO Advanced System Management Controller hardware component via the intelligent management processor chip that is commonly found in the ProLiant server product family of the manufacturer.

The HP ProLiant iLO Advanced System Management Controller is based on the Integrated Lights-Out technology that provides any network administrator with a virtual presence in any networking environment. This presence allows the network administrator to initiate total control over the servers within the physical data center or those stored in remote sites. The device driver extends the capability of the network administrator by eliminating the limitations set by the location or status of the network server. The device driver is partially responsible for ensuring constant system availability which ultimately leads to lower operational costs and improved delivery of Information Technology related services. The device driver of the HP ProLiant iLO Advanced System Management Controller may support the Standard or Advanced modes of the Integrated Lights-Out technology. Both operational modes provide support for diagnostics and system board management feature sets with the main difference being the licensing option found in the Advanced mode.
