This depends on what the hardware is.

Linux usually runs on intel so if it's HP servers you may be able to use iLO, if not you will have to check the hardware manufacturer or use a KVM over IP solution.

Solaris can run on intel (see above) or if you are using newer sun hardware you can configure the RSC/ALOM to provide console services, older systems will need some sort of terminal server.

Linux=Redhat linux or other Linux...

What hardware are you running your Redhat Linux on?

For example, if it's a PC, say a Dell then that does not have any built in remote console support so you will have to purchase a KVM solution. If you are running on a HP ML370G5 for example, these have iLO ports and can be configured for remote access.

On the servers just install OpenSSH server. most distro's include that in their repository, and if you use the distro's packet manager (like yum on redhat) it should also get configured more or less automatically for standard operation. Actually on servers OpenSSH Server is probably already installed by default.

Then you just connect to the server using putty (from windows clients), or by entering

ssh Username@IPOfServer

from a terminal.

To configure it you can edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. Always make sure you have disabled root from logon (PermitRootLogin no).

You could also install webmin on the servers, which is a tool for configuring most options of a Linux server, and it includes a module for SSH. With this it is much simpler to make changes, as it is easier to follow than manually editing your config files.
