From a software perspective, UCS Manager 3.2(1) enables support for the next generation UCS Management platform. This cloud-based management platform provides easy adoption through a device connector that will provide access to new UCS server management functionality. While details of the functionality of the next generation UCS management platform will be available when it is released, this provides a convenient method to take advantage of the new functionality when customers are ready to use it without having to do an additional software or hardware upgrade. All that will be needed is to sign-up for the new platform, point the device connector to the cloud-based management platform by configuring any HTTP proxy information, claim the appropriate devices, and start taking advantage of new features and functions.
