Wondering how to get your HPE ProLiant Server up and running with improved security using industry standard interfaces?
Each HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). This industry standard is a set of interfaces between the system firmware, the operating system, and various components of the system firmware that deliver enhanced security benefits for the HPE Servers.
The HPE ProLiant system BIOS is a UEFI solution based on the latest UEFI Specification revisions. In addition, most HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server are UEFI Class 2 solution, supporting both Legacy BIOS boot and UEFI boot modes, providing users the flexibility to switch between modes. UEFI supports iLO RESTful API and is Redfish API conformant.
The Scripting Toolkit (STK) for Windows and Linux provide flexible scripting to automate steps in HPE ProLiant server configurations to scale high volumes of server deployments rapidly and cut deployment time substantially. The STK includes a modular set of utilities and documentation that describe how to apply the scripting tools for an automated deployment process.
It delivers hands-off, unattended installation for high volume HPE ProLiant server deployments and is integrated with other management tools such as Integrated Lights Out (iLO), BIOS and is based on Intelligent Provisioning. Its "Rack and Go" approach frees up scarce IT resources, delivers consistent server configurations across multiple servers, and integrates into popular methods for operating system deployment. Past versions were based on SmartStart, and were known as the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit.
