iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller

iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller

The integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller is embedded management in every Dell PowerEdge™ server. The data it provides helps you deploy, update, monitor and maintain Dell servers with no need for any additional software to be installed. This means that you get more essential management tasks done faster, your overall server availability increases, and your operational expenses diminish. The Dell iDRAC works regardless of operating system or hypervisor because it’s embedded within each server from the factory. With powerful, easy-to-use, remote management and configuration options, iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller alerts you when an issue occurs, enables streamlined local and remote server management, and reduces or eliminates the need for administrators to physically visit the server — even if the server is not operational.

An integral part of iDRAC, the Dell Lifecycle Controller simplifies server lifecycle management — from provisioning, deployment, patching and updating, to servicing and user customization — for servers both local and remote.

The Lifecycle Controller is a collection of out-of-band automation services, embedded pre-OS applications and remote interfaces that provide deployment, update and maintenance capabilities. Lifecycle Controller includes managed and persistent storage that combines with its systems management features to eliminate the need for traditional media-based systems management tools and utilities.
