SSH and SSH. First to connect directly to the Server, second to connect 
to the builtin service processor which manages basic system functions 
like power, fan speed and a serial console.

These onboard service processors or as an extension card often called 
management cards costs ca 200-300 Euro.

Disadvantage is the builtin OS, which often will never be updated.

Example for a management card is peppercons eric remote management card. 
Google will help you to find this.
