IPI Appliance

The IPI Appliance provides an intelligent gateway to gather information about power, thermals, security, alerts, and all components in the physical infrastructure of each cabinet.

Access the IPI Appliance

VxBlock Central or Vision Intelligent Operations uses SNMP to poll the status of the IPI Appliance and then passes the results to VMware vCenter.

For cabinet-related operations such as adding users or cabinet access cards, see the Dell EMC Intelligent Physical Infrastructure Appliance User Manual.

See the release certification matrix (RCM) to identify the recommended firmware version for your IPI Appliance. Contact Support with any questions.
