For DELL

Dell Repository Manager is an application that allows IT Admins more easily manage system updates. Repository Manager provides an easy to use, searchable interface used to create custom collections known as bundles and repositories of Dell Update Packages (DUPs)
A Dell Update Package (DUP) is a self-contained executable in a standard package format that updates a software element on a Dell server such as the BIOS, a driver, firmware and other software updates. UsingRepository Manager in conjunction with other OpenManage tools helps to ensure that your PowerEdge server is kept up to date.
