OME 1.3 and OpenManage Mobile 1.0 Released!

We’re happy to announce the release of OpenManage Essentials v1.3 and OpenManage Mobile v1.0.

OME continues to expand its ever growing list of supported devices and architecture improvements in v1.3.  It is now a native 64 bit application with upgrade and migration support from previous installations in 64 bits and 32 bits OSes respectively.  Please visit for more details on support matrix and installation/upgrade process as well as the download.

For those customers who want to interface to OME, there are a new set of REST interfaces that can be used to retrieve device and health data that can be useful for integrating with other tools or home grown reporting.  More information is on the documentation page here.

And we are very excited to announce our first mobile product, OpenManage Mobile.  It is an Android client that can monitor your systems via your OME 1.3 server or by directly associating it to your iDRACs.  You can download it from the Google Play store today.

OME v1.3 also provides some integration with Dell AppAssure backup software to allow customer backing up their entire stack of HW, OS and software with one single process.  See this whitepaper for more information.

A compatible version of SupportAssist v1.3 is also now shipping.  See the Support Assist site for additional new features.  There is support for new Windows 2012 Server configurations as well as new devices. 

 For additional information review the product README file and be sure to visit the following DellTechCenter sites:

Many thanks to our OME users, we really appreciate your support.
