Reading Time: 4 minutes Redfish is the new standard, promoted by Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), for secure and scalable server management automation. With Redfish, the challenges of expanded scale, higher security, and multi-vendor openness are managed, while also enabling automation with modern DevOps tools and processes. Historically, in Dell(EMC) servers the out-of-band management function is implemented by the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller component, embedded in every PowerEdge server (with different version, starting from the express to the different enterprise). For modular servers there is also another component called Chassis Management Controller (CMC) that provide […]
