“Support for iSCSI technology at the UEFI BIOS level provides a host of benefits to the datacenter”

"With the transition to UEFI firmware now spreading across server, workstation and embedded computing segments, many of our customers representing server and embedded industry leaders, count on the readiness, quality and maturity of InsydeH2O for their Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series firmware," said Trevor Western, Vice President of Server and Embedded Engineering at Insyde Software"

The growth of the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series lineup enables even greater adoption of firmware solutions, using both traditional BIOS and UEFI implementations. AMI remains committed to ensuring that our AMIBIOS and Aptio offerings satisfy the most rigorous demands of the marketplace.

“IBM is offering next-generation BIOS -- the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) -- to provide a consistent BIOS across its portfolio and to allow for more detailed remote-configuration options.”

This new relationship will accelerate the adoption rate of DeviceVM's instant-on platform pre-integrated with AMIBIOS® and Aptio® UEFI products by lowering both the development time and cost for PC manufacturers.

“The MegaRAID UEFI driver enables system builders to define a clean interface between operating systems and the platform at boot time, and supports an architecture-independent mechanism for initializing add-in cards.”

"Some of the enhancements UEFI provides over the older BIOS, still used in most competitive servers, includes: Human readable event logs — no more beep codes, complete setup solution by allowing adapter configuration function to be moved into UEFI, complete out-of-band coverage by the Advance Settings Utility to simplify remote setup, and consistent firmware management across an entire product line"

"Another improvement with the new generation of X-Architecture is the replacement of old BIOS with a new generation United Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). UEFI provides a more intuitive user interface and understandable event logs and better management."
