Video: Benefits of Agent-Free Management with iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller 02:10

Simplify your server system management

In the heart of every Dell PowerEdge server beats the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. This open, agent-free management component allows you to:

  • Manage at the server or remotely through a traditional console or mobile device
  • Integrate with leading IT management solutions, including OpenManage Essentials
  • Implement intelligent, automated server lifecycle management
And for multiple server blades or nodes in a modular chassis, such as the PowerEdge M1000e, FX2 or VRTX, the agent-free Dell Chassis Management Controller (CMC) enables you to deploy, monitor, update and maintain these systems through a browser-based console that covers each system’s servers, storage and networking components.

Features and Benefits

iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller and the Chassis Management Controller are at the core of Dell's enterprise infrastructure management. They enable intelligent, automated control of servers, storage and networking modules in rack, blade and converged environments with easy-to-use browser-accessible consoles and an array of OpenManage tools to assist with integrating Dell systems into your unique IT environment, with options for using command-line instructions, scripted routines and ready access to onboard automation that can manage ongoing operations.

iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller


The integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller provides embedded management in every Dell PowerE
The integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller provides embedded management in every Dell PowerEdge server. It provides functionality that helps you deploy, update, monitor and maintain Dell PowerEdge servers with or without a systems management software agent, and because it is embedded, iDRAC doesn’t need an operating system or hypervisor to start working. This agent-free operation means that with OpenManage technology, your new server is ready to deploy a new OS or accept new settings without installing extra software. And with powerful, easy-to-use, remote management and configuration options, iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller can alert you when an issue occurs, no matter where you are. Learn More

Chassis Management Controller (CMC)


Dell Chassis Management Controller (CMC)
The Chassis Management Controller furthers OpenManage innovation with quick, easy and intuitive management for multi-server chassis and the server modules, storage and networking devices within.

The Dell CMC module's secure browser-based interface can be used to make a thorough system inventory, perform configuration and monitoring tasks, remotely power on/off servers, and enable alerts for component events in the system chassis. Embedded into the platform chassis, CMC requires no additional software installation and is also accessible from a front LCD panel.

Since CMC interacts with the iDRAC in each server, you can perform server-specific iDRAC functions like updates, settings changes, or remote console sessions from the CMC interface. Learn More
