The Raritan eRIC G4 is a KVM-over-IP remote management PCI card that adds remote, unblocked, BIOS-level access and control to any server.  Accessed from any Web browser, it provides anytime, anywhere KVM access with maximum security, stability and speed.

The eRIC G4 shrinks all the performance and security features of Raritan's remote KVM access-and-control technology into a low-profile PCI card, easily inserted into 1U and 2U form factors for PC, Sun and Mac platforms. It also offers dual-channel Virtual Media technology, allowing an administrator to exchange installation files and other media between a target machine and a remote user over KVM ports.

eRIC G4 requires no client software on the remote user end and can be accessed from almost any combination of operating systems and Web browser, including Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer. And because it operates at the BIOS level, this KVM over IP PCI card provides access to servers even if the server's OS fails. Its modem provides emergency access, even when the network or the internet is unavailable. eRIC G4's combination of encryption and certification protects any server from unauthorized access.
