IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter
Remote supervisor adapter (RSA) is the out-of-band management interface card optional on most IBM x86-based server machines sold under the IBM System x brand.
Similar in functionality to HP iLO, Dell DRAC, Sun SSP, Real Weasel, or Cisco CIMC.
Remote management is independent of the status of the managed server.
