When your Mac server absolutely has to stay running through rain, snow, sleet, and gloom of night, you need more than Apple’s Restart After Power Failure feature. Sophisticated Circuits’ Kick-off is a lot more. This clever add-on for USB-capable Macs can automatically detect an OS or application crash, and it then restarts your server or the failed application. Kick-off does all this painlessly, with reliable hardware and intuitive software.
Kick-off continuously monitors your Mac’s health through a small module connected to your USB port. Moreover, it logs reliability problems and the events leading up to them. The module has status lights–a very handy feature if your monitor is turned off.
