Improve operational efficiency

Help manage your servers using the Dell OpenManage portfolio, including Dell’s exclusive integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. iDRAC, an embedded systems management feature, allows you to manage Dell servers in physical, virtual, local and remote environments, either in-band or out-ofband, with or without a systems management software agent. OpenManage also integrates and connects to leading third-party systems management solutions you may already use, allowing you to maintain a single point of control and capitalize on your existing investment. OpenManage simplifies the lifecycle of deploying, updating, monitoring, and maintaining your Dell PowerEdge servers.

 

PowerEdge M-series blade server line

Implement the right combination of features and performance scalability with the PowerEdge M-series blade servers, which can handle tough workloads in any size data centers. In addition to the world-class management features provided in all PowerEdge servers, the M520 also takes advantage of the capabilities of the M1000e Chassis Management Controller (CMC). The CMC allows M-series blades to be managed individually or as groups, in single or multiple chassis, and within a data center or in multiple geographically dispersed locations around the globe without requiring a single agent or additional hardware. PowerEdge M-series blade servers use the redundant power, cooling, and networking infrastructure provided by the Dell M1000e blade enclosure, which is exceptionally easy to deploy and manage, and maximizes power and cooling efficiency.
