iLO Amplifier Pack (Integrated Lights-Out) is an at scale inventory and update management tool which enables customers with large Gen8, Gen9 and Gen10 Hewlett Packard Enterprise server deployments to get rapid up-to-date inventory and automate firmware and driver updates. It also assists in manual and automated recovery of systems with corrupt firmware. It scales to thousands of servers reducing personnel and downtime. It is a pre-tested solution which allows maintenance to come from the administrator at a console with a browser-based GUI versus having to physically touch each unit or create and manage customized scripts. It has an integrated discovery engine that identifies components that need to be updated on servers and take care of inter-dependency issues. Current version of iLO Amplifier Pack available for download is v1.50.
