iLo is a value add to HP. DRAC sucks (so I'd replace it and then Dell
would have hardware under support with some unknown IPMI). Supermicro,
Tyan, etc - idk. Really, it would be nice to have an open card that
does this. Even if the card were limited to what you could do with DMA
and some serial (i2c and whatnot) cables. I'd use that instead of
something else (in this case, mainly because I'd replace the Java
console for some VNC solution - but also because of trust).
