a server just "works", and provide a usable way to debug the OS
whenever it's needed (mostly never).
Cheap server have at least a serial port, because that the
minimal device to interact with the bios/OS.
More expensive server have some out of band management
capabilities.

Most of the time, they are not used, but when we **need** them
these "plus" save your time which is what we value most (isn't it).

But your server, your problems, and your choices.

Just my .2 cents
