Software

Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) 9

The integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 9 (iDRAC9) with Lifecycle Controller is embedded within every Dell EMC PowerEdge™ server and provides functionality that helps IT administrators deploy, update, monitor, and maintain  servers with no need for any additional software to be installed.   iDRAC functions regardless of operating system or hypervisor presence because from a pre-OS or bare-metal state, iDRAC is ready to work because it is embedded within each server from the factory.

(Optional)

OpenManage Essentials

OpenManage Essentials (OME) is a systems management console that provides simple, basic Dell hardware management and is available as a free download.

Storage Spaces Direct

Storage Spaces Direct is included in Windows Server 2016 Datacenter.

Storage Spaces Direct uses industry-standard servers with local-attached drives to create highly available, highly scalable software-defined storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN or NAS arrays. Its converged or hyper-converged architecture radically simplifies procurement and deployment, while features like caching, storage tiers, and erasure coding, together with the latest hardware innovation like RDMA networking and NVMe drives, deliver unrivaled efficiency and performance.
