Dell is taking server management for its PowerEdge servers one step further. According to this report on The Register, Dell has OEMed the SCE 2010 software from Microsoft and has worked with Microsoft to integrate its Windows management console with its own OpenManage tools.

The company will integrate Microsoft's SCE 2010 software with its own OpenManage tools.
