Embedded Management: Agent-free Intelligence built into PowerEdge Servers

Dell PowerEdge systems management starts with the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller that is embedded within every Dell PowerEdge server. This core technology makes it possible to start managing your Dell servers from the moment they’re plugged in, with no additional software needed to monitor and manage your systems. Dell’s agent-free solution makes quick work of software deployments, updates, firmware settings and monitoring. And with no software to install, there’s no need to certify, install or update software agents.

Simplicity and Automation: Fewer Tools and Low-Touch Processes

We design our OpenManage tools for ease of use, with a common, consistent interface that makes it easy to view data and take action in just a few clicks — and without switching from one tool to another. The automation of OpenManage tools makes them particularly useful when performing one-to-many types of updates, or various setting changes across multiple systems. Dell OpenManage tools are easy to understand and use as well as highly automated, there’s less risk of one-off, manual configuration errors.

Integrations and Connections to third- Party Management Tools: Use Existing Management Frameworks and Skill sets to Manage Dell Platforms

Data from Dell consoles, tools and from the individual PowerEdge servers can be connected to or integrated with third-party tools. This is especially important in heterogeneous environment where Dell equipment is managed alongside that of other vendors or where customers are using IT frameworks to manage hardware and software. Dell systems are easily managed in such frameworks and those existing IT investments can continue to be utilized, saving both time and money.

This savings is exactly why customers invest in Dell equipment as well as the OpenManage technologies that are built into every PowerEdge server: to ensure that business applications are available, to increase the efficiency of the IT staff and to give them the ability to monitor and manage their Dell assets.
