Dell OpenManage Storage Services (OMSS), also known as Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Storage Management is designed for system administrators who implement hardware RAID solutions and understand corporate and small business storage environments. OMSS allows you to configure the storage components attached to your system. These components include RAID and non-RAID controllers and the channels, ports, enclosures, and disks attached to them.

Using OMSS, you can configure and manage controller functions without accessing
the BIOS. These functions include configuring virtual disks and applying RAID levels and hot spares for data protection. You can initiate many other controller functions like rebuilds, troubleshooting, setting thresholds, and so on. Most functions can be configured and managed while the system remains
online and continues to process requests.
