Virtual media - typically combined with a KVM-over-IP switch - is a feature that allows a remote user (using a computer in a remote location) to use files located on a local storage media (USB stick; CD-ROM; Flash memory; External drive, etc.) when working on a remote server. The virtual media feature allows the remote user to quickly and easily move and copy data between the storage media and the server, over the network (Internet; LAN; WAN), just as if the storage media were directly attached to that server's USB port.
Using virtual media, a remote operator can install application and OS patches, download files and perform diagnostic testing on a remote server without physically entering the data center where the server is located.
