Using iDRAC7 With Lifecycle Controller
The benefits include:
Increased Availability — Early notification of potential or actual
failures that help prevent a server failure or reduce recovery time
Improved Productivity and Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
— Extending the reach of administrators to larger numbers of distant
servers can make IT staff more productive while driving down operational
costs such as travel.
Secure Environment — By providing secure access to remote servers,
administrators can perform critical management functions while maintaining
server and network security.
