Platform management that is easy and efficient<br />IBM Systems Director 6.1 provides easy-to-use, powerful tools for managing both physical and virtual resources for System x and BladeCenter and other IBM and non-IBM systems. The new version provides simplified deployment, installation and update processes, and can be accessed from anywhere with a consistent, web-based user interface. New tasks can be quickly learned with intuitive wizards, tutorials and integrated help. The broad portfolio of systems managed by a single tool can reduce staff training and operational expenses.<br />IBM Systems Director 6.1<br />
  45. 45. Reducing complexity of choosing, finding, and learning management tools. <br />IBM ToolsCenter consolidates the needed tools for managing servers individually into an integrated suite. The tools are organized by function: deployment, updates, configuration and diagnostics. Tools are now simpler to access and use with a single easy-to-use webpage for access, a common look and feel and a common command line interface for the scripting tools. The ToolsCenter Bootable Media Creator offers significantly more functionality than past tools with the ability to add more tools to the bootable image and to automatically download the bootable environment if needed. The bootable media creator supports CD, DVD and USB key. <br />ToolsCenter<br />
