OME Team,

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.
