DSView® 3 management software provides you the benefit of centralized management of your Service Processors. DSView 3 software gives you one common interface to access and manage console and power management appliances. It also provides secure access authentication, a failover hub and spoke architecture, event notifications, and access to IPMI-enabled servers.

Service Processor Manager streamlines and consolidates the management of servers with service processor technologies such as Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI, versions 1.5 and 2.0), Dell® Remote Access Card (DRAC), HP® Integrated Lights-Out (iLO), IBM® Remote Supervisor Adapter II (RSA II), Sun® Advanced Lights Out Management (ALOM), Sun Integrated Lights Out Management (ILOM), Fujitsu-Siemens integrated Remote Management Card (iRMC) and IBM BladeCenter.

Service Processor Managers simplify and significantly reduce the deployment costs of out-of-band management of servers with service processor technologies by consolidating IP connections, user access and server health information.

The Solution not only makes it easier to take advantage of Service Processor (SP) features, but also enhances SP functionality with add-on features. For example, the SoL feature complements the continuous data logging capabilities, resulting in additional security and auditing. Also, simultaneous power control of multiple servers boosts the already existing power management capabilities of SPs, including graceful shutdown support for IPMI. These features allow the user to completely unleash the power of SP technologies.
