Dell customers have told us they need a server manufacturer that inspires confidence through its reliability, availability and quality of products. By listening to and focusing on what our customers want, weve set a simple reliability goal: Deliver quality products that stand the test of time.
To help meet this goal, Dell is dedicated to improving reliability processes by:
Intelligent, Connected Systems Management
Along with its adherence to open standards, Dells systems-management portfolio focuses on simplicity, efficiency, cost containment and cost reduction. Additionally, weve integrated our management solutions with third-party offerings to provide your organization with a holistic focus across the solutions stack.
Integrated on the server, the Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration, and diagnostics in a pre-OS environmentall from a single, intuitive interface called the Unified Server Configurator (USC). This can help eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
The PowerEdge R815 also features an interactive LCD display positioned on the front of the server for easy setup, monitoring and maintenance. Plain-language diagnosis and a programmable messaging system can help users address issues quickly, while a color-based alert screen (blue for normal operation; amber for a problem) simplifies day-to-day monitoring.
Dells OpenManage systems-management portfolio also includes the Dell Management Console, which is included with every Dell server, and provides IT managers with a consolidated view of their entire IT infrastructure.
