The BMC Server Automation product is a comprehensive system for the initial provisioning and ongoing automated management of data center servers. Using this system, administrators can provision operating systems onto servers and then specify how the server should be configured. BMC Server Automation lets administrators manage servers with a consistent user experience, regardless of whether the servers are physical or virtual.
