iLO RESTful API Ecosystem

Simplify and automate your remote server management

One RESTful Interface for Integrated Control

HPE Integrated Lights Out (iLO) server management provides intelligent remote control automation through scripting or an API. Gain even more capabilities that go beyond scripting by leveraging one API to manage your complete lifecycle of HPE Gen9 and Gen10 servers – iLO RESTful API.

A single RESTful API interface integrates server management components and full compute power. Use it with HPE iLO 4 and iLO 5 to perform remote server provisioning, configuration, inventory and monitoring to industry standards through Redfish API conformance.

Redfish API Implementation

Obtain simple, secure management of today’s scalable data centre hardware with the Redfish API ecosystem. It’s an open, industry-standard specification and schema that helps you integrate solutions within your existing tools. Published by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), it’s ideal for cloud and web-based infrastructures, which typically have large quantities of servers in heterogeneous environments.

RESTful API Developer Community

Gain from the news, resources and connections from the HPE Software-Defined Infrastructure developer community that you won’t find anywhere else. Read blogs posts from HPE engineers and get keen insights on server management automation and integration. Share your server management experiences with other developers on the iLO RESTful API Forum for a better level of support.
