Beyond the manufacturing of motherboards and graphics cards, MSI™ also expands its product lineup to include the design and manufacturing of Server type solutions and products. Within the past two years, MSI™'s SPD (Server Product Division) has acquired specialists for research and development. MSI™ has successfully produced products that are fine-tuned to fit our customer's needs. In order to allow everyone to be more familiar with the latest developments from SPD, MSI™ will be hosting a Server Press Conference at our headquarters on August 14th 2002 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm. During the conference, it will be our honor to present the latest in Server solutions as will as MMS, the latest server management software suite developed by MSI™.

MMS (MSI™ Server Management Suite) Software methodology
Hardware Monitoring: The most cost-effective deployment of system management that utilizes the least amount of human resource to review hardware status. Hardware Monitoring can be used at a remote location to monitor your MSI™ server. The network administrator is therefore capable of assessing the vital system information such as System Temperature, Voltage, Fan Speed, CPU temperature and much more.
OOB: (Out of Band) Allows the user the capability of managing the server's functions without being at the physical location. The essence of OOB allows repair and management features from a remote location if the system should cease to function.
Secure Mode: Can prevent unauthorized access and possible damage to the system using software protection. Secure Mode allows the Network Administrator to lock both the power and reset button, thus preventing unauthorized access to the use of the servers.
Chassis Identify: In a server room with multiple racks of servers, Chassis Identify quickly allows the Network Administrator to locate the troubled system instantly. Chassis Identify utilizes a button and LED at both the front and rear of the unit to allow easy identification within the server group.
Chassis Control: Allows the System Administrator to perform Cold Boot, Shutdown, reset (reboot) functions.
System Event Log: Capable of logging all system event information, System Event Log records hardware status, events to even system management functions. This allows the administrator to quickly check, manage and fix system abnormalities.
Abnormal Event Preset (Event Action, Fault LED, Blue Screen): Prior to an abnormal event, the System Administrator can preset the server's functions to either reboot, post a Blue Screen warning or even turn on the warning light (Fault LED) in order to alert the user.
ASR (Auto Server Restart) ASR allows the server to automatically reboot after a preset time if the system locks up or cannot function, thus reducing the overall system downtime.
Boot Option: This function allows the Administrator to choose the sequence during system POST. Detailed choices include options to boot from FDD, CD-ROM, hard drives or even a particular logical partition on a specified drive. Boot Option is a very feasible method to perform a common function that typically requires the Administrator to access the server room.
Console Redirection: Coming from the system BIOS, Console Redirection is capable of allowing server machines to be displayed on a remote terminal. This function allows the Administrator to effortlessly manage server functions remotely as though they were physically present in the server room. (Currently, Console Redirection is only available under DOS mode.)
