HP Blade enclosure & blades, when do I use HP SUM and when do I use VUM?

Hello,

 

This is a general question.

 

I've read that HP SUM will update firmware, software, drivers and VMware VUM does something similar. What is the difference between them?

 

When would I use VMware VUM as apposed to using HP SUM? 

 

If HP SUM can do the whole firmware from enclosure throught to the blade components, why wouldn't I just use this? to do everything.

 

Until someone explains the difference if appears their paths cross to a degree?

 

Also can you use HP SUM without having HP SIM?

 

Anyone help explain this I would most gratful.

 

Thanks.
