Embedded within every Dell EMC PowerEdge server is a powerful leading-edge remote server management processor.
The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) is designed for secure local and remote server management and helps IT administrators deploy, update and monitor Dell EMC PowerEdge servers anywhere, anytime.
Telemetry streaming, which requires the iDRAC9 Datacenter license, allows you to discover trends, fine tune operations, and create predictive analytics to optimize your infrastructure. Using tools such as Splunk or ELK Stack, you can perform deep analysis of server telemetry including storage, networking and memory parametric data for proactive decision making and decreased downtime. Telemetry streaming can be used for system customization, optimization, risk management, and predictive analytics.
By utilizing standards-based APIs such as Redfish and robust scripting tools like RedHat Ansible and Racadm, you can efficiently manage thousands of servers and increase productivity.
SELinux and configurable options like HTTPS, TLS 1.2, smart card authentication, LDAP, and active directory integration provide security in your working environment. You can enhance security incident prevention with features like Simple 2-Factor Authentication, Automatic Certificate Enrollment, and advanced password security. You can also protect your system from unwanted configuration changes via System Lockdown Mode.
With embedded SupportAssist tools, you can view a continuously updated health and status report that monitors 5,000+ system parameters. You can easily view the SupportAssist Collection details of your system without uploading to the cloud.
