Just as the modern universal remote control automates many of the manual processes of interacting with the various components in your entertainment center, BMC’s Atrium Orchestrator does exactly the same for your datacenter.

Just as the modern univeral remote solved much of the manual effort of using my entertainment center, BMC’s Atrium Orchestrator can do the same for your datacenter.
