Dell OMNM - Easy to Use

Easy to install, easy to use

OpenManage™ Network Manager provides a unified console for all functions — from health and performance monitoring to configuration and change management. It can also help reduce cost by automating network management functions and by increasing network uptime through diagnostic, monitoring and backup/restore capabilities.

Because OpenManage Network Manager requires no client or agent software, you can focus more on efficiency and less on administration. Typically deploy in minutes or hours, not weeks or months, and never worry about an agent update again.
