Cisco UCS Manager v UCS Director

Hello Experts,

Can someone please tell me the difference between Cisco UCS Manager and UCS Central? There appear to be features in UCS Manager that doesn't appear in UCS Central. e.g. I can't find the tabs for LANS and SANs in UCS Central, which are available in UCS Manager, see below:

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

UCS Manager provides the control of specific datacenters, clusters, or "fabrics" and would be used for system setups and the day to day mangement tasks.  UCS Central is a top level monitoring and management app.  See the "video data sheets" on these pages. Cisco can explain better than I.
