Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter
What if you could manage your physical infrastructure from your virtual console?
What if you could rapidly and consistently provision hardware and deploy virtual machines from within VMware vCenter?
What if you could reduce the number of steps needed to deploy virtual infrastructure?
With the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter installed in your VMware environment, you can:
Get deep-level detail from Dell servers for inventory, monitoring and alerting— all from within vCenter
Deploy BIOS and firmware updates to Dell servers from within vCenter
Build hardware and hypervisor profiles and deploy any combination of the two on bare-metal Dell PowerEdge servers without a preboot execution environment (PXE)
Automatically perform Dell-recommended vCenter actions based on Dell hardware alerts
Access Dell hardware warranty information online
And, to give you even more power, we deliver our plug-in as a virtual appliance. That makes it easier to deploy and configure and offers integration directly into the vCenter console, providing more information inside of vCenter itself — unlike many other vendors who provide only "link-and-launch" capabilities to point to their own proprietary consoles.
The combination of the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter and the revolutionary embedded management features offered by Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller in Dell PowerEdge servers gives you an unmatched level of integration between vCenter and your server hardware.
VMware® vSphereTM 4 uses the power of virtualization to help transform data centers into dramatically simplified cloud infrastructures. Dell is committed to driving complexity from enterprise computing, including virtual infrastructure. Together, Dell and VMware deliver efficient virtual infrastructure solutions that are fast to deploy and easy to manage, so you can:
Drive new levels of efficiency through consolidation and management automation
Increase IT control of the quality of service through service level automation
Achieve the flexibility to easily adapt to changing requirements
