Intel Active Management Technology (iAMT) will work to provide a common interface that management software across different vendors can access. Intel would like to promote “better manageability through commonality. The iAMT technology will build upon the Server Management Working Group that Intel, Dell and others launched last December. The iAMT technology will be built on standard interfaces, such as IPMI. Vendors like IBM will have access to these interfaces although there’s a possibility Intel will design OEM-specific modules. The technology will involve three components: an iAMT-aware chip set, an iAMT-aware Ethernet NIC and a small amount of additional flash memory. A system could use the technology to issue an OS-independent wake-on-LAN command, for example, minimizing the amount of power necessary to power the system.
