Client tier

The client tier includes:

  • A console, a graphical user interface (GUI) that:
    • Gives system administrators a host of sophisticated tools for managing and automating data center procedures.
    • Lets system administrators provision operating systems onto servers.
  • A command line interface (BLCLI) that provides application programming interface (API)-level access to the functionality available through the console.
  • A web interface to Portal if it is installed at your site.
