MegaRAID Storage manager comes with it, installs on Windows or Linux and can be monitored centrally. You monitor the blades individually since although the Bladecenter S has shared storage it's just zoned via a SAS switch so in effect individual disks are connected directly to individual blades even though in the shared bays.
