Systems Director Management Console (SDMC)
May 2012: The IBM® Systems Director Management Console (SDMC) has been withdrawn from marketing and can no longer be ordered. For customers who have installed the SDMC, an MES is available to convert it to an HMC.
From the announce letter:
IBM Systems Director Management Console (SDMC) V6.7.3 is the next-generation Hardware Management Console (HMC). The SDMC incorporates the IBM Systems Director software to provide consistency with IBM Systems Director on other platforms. The SDMC is available on physical hardware that is identical to that of the current HMC with additional memory and disk resources. SDMC is also available in a virtual appliance format for managing small-tier servers. The SDMC offers several advantages over the HMC, including the ability to manage both Power Systems servers and Power Systems blades based on Power Architecture®.
