Intel vPro Technology Green Power Management Solution
Intel vPro technology has always provided a way to power remote-client computers on or off as easily as if their power buttons were accessible to the service technician. The Green Power Management Solution extends that capability to include graceful shutdowns to power states other than off and the option to create alarm clock events that run on Intel® Active Management Technology, which you can use to ensure machines are powered on in preparation for scheduled maintenance events. This helps ensure that idle machines can spend more of their time in an off, hibernated, or sleeping power state without affecting IT’s ability to effectively manage and administer the entire fleet of machines.
Intel vPro Technology Instant Back to Work Solution
The Instant Back to Work Solution provides you a way to boot to an affected system to a lightweight, temporary operating system provided by a network-attached image. This lightweight operating system runs from main memory without requiring access to the crippled mass storage devices. While it provides a way for the repair technician to access the offline mass storage devices to make repairs, it simultaneously offers the user a conventional user interface with a Web browser to restore a degree of productivity even while the machine is being repaired.
Intel vPro Technology Easy Reimage Solution
The Easy Reimage Solution describes how to restore a remote client to service with a full reimage of the operating system with user personalization—no matter what the initial state of the client.
Intel Event Response Tool Solution (Intel ERT)
The Intel® Event Response Tool allows users to visually create and execute workflows that utilize Intel® vProTM Technology capabilities to manage client systems. Intel ERT comes pre-loaded with a number of plug-ins that utilize Intel vPro technology to perform management tasks remotely on managed clients. Using the drag-and-drop workflow creation interface, you can easily link these tasks together to create a workflow.
Remote Password Automation
Automates the process for recovering a lost or forgotten password for a fully encrypted drive (remotely unlocking Windows BitLocker* Drive Encryption remote drives).
Intel® vProTM Platform Solution Manager
The Intel® vProTM Platform Solution Manager is a framework application that allows you to launch plugin applications to remotely manage your Intel vPro platform. Intel vPro Platform Solution Manager comes with several preconfigured plugins that perform tasks such as power management, KVM Remote Control, and asset management, among others.
