MegaRAC® SP-X is a powerful server management solution composed of firmware and software components based on industry standards like IPMI 2.0, SMASH, Serial over LAN (SOL) and key serviceability features like remote presence, CIM profiles and advanced automation. MegaRAC SP-X is available for nearly all of the latest System-On-Chip (SoC) designs from the major SOC providers in the market today.
For remote access, MegaRAC SP-X provides a user-friendly web interface through an integrated web-server, a command line protocol (CLP) based on the DMTF SMASH specification and programmable web services based on the WSMAN standard. MegaRAC SP-X also provides Secure-Shell (SSH)-based Serial over LAN for remote access.
MegaRAC SP-X firmware features a high level of modularity, with the ability to easily configure and build the firmware image by selecting/deselecting features using an intuitive graphical development tool chain. These features are available in individual packages which are independently maintained, adding a higher degree of maintainability of the firmware stack.
Stack components like the web interface and OEM-specific features and components can be completely customized and enriched with MegaRAC® DS, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for server management designed as a set of Eclipse plug-ins. MegaRAC DS has been extended to include the ability to customize the SP-X firmware, build and debug it all at the same time.
