Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) is the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) standard for secure out-of-band (irrespective of the power state or the clients' operating system) and remote management of desktop and mobile systems.

 

AMD is an active member in DMTF and is committed to supporting the DMTF DASH standard as a part of our comprehensive commercial platform support.

 

Microsoft® System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (SCCM 2012), also known as ConfigMgr 2012, is a systems management software product from Microsoft for managing computers running various desktop and mobile operating systems.  The features supported by SCCM 2012 are remote control, patch management, software distribution, operating system deployment, network access protection and hardware and software inventory.

 

AMPS 2.1 is a product that extends SCCM 2012 to manage the desktop and mobile systems' out-of-band using DASH standards.

In the AMPS 2.1 release, the features supported are:

 

  • Manual and Auto DASH Discovery
  • Power Control
  • Boot Control
  • Inventory
  • Wake on DASH
  • Collection
  • Digest and Active Directory Authentication

 

I am happy and excited to announce the availability of AMPS 2.1 product for download! Please reach out to your AMD representative or visit the forum with any questions or feedback you may have.
