Need remote server management? The HPE iLO Advanced and HPE iLO Advanced for BladeSystem licenses offer smart remote functionality without compromise for HPE ProLiant Servers. This license includes the full suite of HPE iLO server management capabilities that offer users enhanced security, improved efficiency and ease of server management. The Integrated Remote Console feature unlocked by this license lets you operate on your server from anywhere, anytime increasing productivity. It also unlocks features such as directory integration and 2-factor authentication that complement the security features which are part of the base server offering. This license enables the complete group management capabilities provided by the iLO Federation feature. HPE iLO Advanced is available for HPE ProLiant, HPE Apollo and HPE Edgeline Servers. HPE Synergy Compute Modules include iLO Advanced capabilities, no license is needed.

Features

Sophisticated Remote Administration of Servers

HPE iLO Advanced provides Integrated Remote Console with virtual keyboard and mouse to significantly reduce IT cost associated with travel and unplanned downtime.

Supports Global Team Collaboration for up to six consoles.

Console Record and Playback of server administration activity.

Virtual Media and folders to simplify server set up.

Power Management with 24-hour history and dynamic capping for health monitoring, power and thermal control.

Enhanced Security Features

HPE iLO Advanced provides Directory Service Authentication that allows for user-password policies to be inherited from a directory without the need to update user-password setting in each server.

Common Access Card (CAC)/Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card based 2-factor authentication (available on HPE Gen10 Server portfolios and later).

Kerberos authentication provides dual authentication allowing users to log in once and navigate between servers.

Enhanced security with iLO Federation allows an iLO to encrypt and sign messages to other iLOs in same group.

Optimized performance

HPE iLO Advanced gives you access to Hewlett Packard Enterprise patented Jitter Smoothing and core boosting technology for significant performance improvements, real savings, and a more intelligent server environment.

Jitter smoothing mitigates processor frequency fluctuation for reduced latency, more deterministic performance and, in some cases, improved overall workload throughput above Turbo Boost Mode[1] alone.

Core boosting enables higher performance across more processor cores without overclocking and lower licensing costs for core and processor based licensing. Available with select HPE Gen10 Server configurations with select Intel® processors.

Enhanced security with iLO Federation allows an iLO to encrypt and sign messages to other iLOs in same group.

Simplified Server Management at Scale and Built-in Group Management With iLO Federation

HPE iLO Advanced offers Group Virtual Media which gives you the ability to replicate the same script media within an iLO Federation group.

Group Power Control lets you turn several servers on and off with a single click.

Group Power Capping allows servers to share power consumption among a group of servers.

Group License Activation for faster implementation of iLO licenses.
