IPMI and BMC are attractive, but as far as I can tell, completely
non-viable for moderately-priced nodes. I mean, if my 1-u dual costs
$US 2k, adding a BMC probably means a 35-50% boost in price.
or are there cheap BMC options? otherwise, it seems like a holdover
from the world of "enterprise" gold-plated servers, where $1k on a
$50K server is in the noise...
