MegaRAC® FP-X Fabric Management Firmware

MegaRAC® FP-X Fabric Management Firmware is a powerful firmware / software stack that combines complete fabric management functionality with that of a baseboard management controller (BMC). It offers all of the BMC management tasks as defined by IPMI 2.0, Serial over LAN (SOL), complete out-of-band (OOB) connectivity and an advanced component management framework to support PCIe switch-based management, NVMe, RAID and industry-standard drivers. For remote access to fabric management tasks, MegaRAC FP-X provides a secure embedded web server and UI, along with Secure-Shell (SSH)-based SOL as well as standard IPMI-based SOL.

MegaRAC FP-X is based on the proven, highly stable and widely-used MegaRAC SP-X stack, sharing the same code base. Like SP-X, FP-X firmware provides a high level of modularity, with the ability to easily configure the complete stack by selecting available features in package form. OEM-level modifications are made using MegaRAC Development Studio (MDS), an Eclipse™-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for server management with the power to customize, build and debug all at once. Additionally, MegaRAC FP-X support is available on all of the advanced System-On-Chip (SoC) devices from the leading manufacturers.
