|LifeCycle Controller Embedded Management|
The optional Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced embedded management and is delivered as part of the iDRAC Express or optional iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R310. The Lifecycle Controller is in the server and helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
