iLo Direct Connect availability

Is there any availability date for iLo4 Direct Connect?  This was to allow direct reporting of hardware failures to HP (or configured service provider) via iLo, without the need for Insight Remort Support or HP SIM or anything else.  It was referred to in the original iLo4 release documentation but not yet realized.  Any update on this?

Re: iLo Direct Connect availability

Update -

In the original ILO4 documentation this was referred to as "Embedded Remote Support" and touted the ability to report system events to HP without any agents or other software (i.e. no Insight Remote Support).  In subsequent revisions to ILO4 documentation this capability was changed and now requires Insight Remote Support (v 7.0.5 at the time).   Going forward, is that the plan....no possibility of remote support without an additional server running Windows Server and IRS?
