We’ve been hard at work since our previous release of OME last October. There has been a lot of attention lately around our fantastic new server platform from Dell called VRTX. So we’re excited to bring support for this new product into our new release of OpenManage Essentials. For companies running remote or branch offices, the combination of VRTX and OME 1.2 will be a tremendous benefit to the administrator trying to monitor devices in multiple physical locations.
The traffic and feedback on the forum has been really great to see. It’s starting to get more of a community ‘feel’ to it. Many of you have made OME part of your day to day operations in your datacenter, and for that we are very grateful. You should see a good number of feature requests and fixes that you sent us show up in this new release. We are also refreshing and launching a number of new whitepapers today on Dell TechCenter. We have around thirty whitepapers today dedicated to OME and expect to have more on the way
Take a few minutes to view the OME 1.2 overview video and get an idea of some of the key new features in this release.
Here is a list of some of the new features to look for in OpenManage Essentials 1.2:
Again, thanks for all of your feedback. Please continue to post on the forum and keep those suggestions coming. We will have an OpenManage Essentials Chat on July 16th at 3PM US Central so we can get your feedback and answer your questions on the release.
To find links to the OME 1.2 download and for the latest information on the product, vist the Dell TechCenter page on OpenManage Essentials. We will be working this week to get all the links on our DellTechCenter / OME page updated with the latest information.
Too bad the download of OME1.2 does not work. Dell's server has an uncanny tendency to break the connection after 2M downloaded. I have tried different ISP, different browsers and different computers at different days (since last week). and it is not giving me the whole package.
Anybody cares to trace the server logs and fit this? Or just put it somewhere else where I can get it.
SkyDrive, Dropbox, Box.Net are all good.
This one is not!
