Out-of-Band Management Now Available From the Cloud

Is there a better way to handle Out-of-Band Management (OOBM)? The concept of OOBM is not new. For years network engineers and architects have been building separate management networks. Whether it is through a management VLAN or dial-up modems, the concept is the same. How do I access my equipment outside of the data path? Console servers, serial aggregators and POTS lines have all been used in the past, and they all have the same challenges: cost, management, maintenance, etc.
