Why use Lights-Out in your company?

 

Situation

In a business environment, servers are typically operated 24/7 without interruption.

Desktop computers however may be used by different employees and may still be running after end of work.

It is tedious to switch all computers on in the morning and off after end of work.

Home users

Solution

  • Lights-Out guarantees, that you run your computers on demand to minimize energy consumption without losing comfort.
  • Lights-Out can, for example, start your computers in the morning 15 minutes ahead of your working hours. This allows time to complete Windows Updates before your employees arrive at work.
  • Computers in departments or locations with different operating times can be assigned to a group. Lights-Out can manage any different groups.

The focus for Lights-Out business users is on the computers.

Here are more use cases for Lights-Out.

Why use Lights-Out at home?

 

Situation

At home, you typically control your family computers and switch them off if not in use.

Your server however may run headless (without monitor and keyboard) or is located in a separate room.

It is tedious to switch the server on and off if not in use.
