HP OneView Automation + VMware Virtualization


As Luigi explained in detail in a recent blog, HP’s OneView automation platform allows you to automate the roll-out of hundreds of active/active highly available Virtual Connect configurations. Recently, HP has announced the HP OneView and VMware integration. Now allowing administrators to easily provision, monitor, update and scale physical and virtual resources from the vCenter Console. In this blog, I will be highlighting the major benefits, providing an example and linking you to a couple of great articles from the 1Cloudroad Content Network.

Unique benefits: HP OneView-vCenter integration

  • Understand the relationship between physical and virtual
  • Provision, monitor, update and scale all resources without leaving vCenter
  • Automate control of HP compute, storage, and networking resources without detailed knowledge of each device

Below I have provided an example of how the HP OneView Integration could allow your team provision infrastructure >12x faster

Allowing an administrator to preform these management tasks within VMware Center is key. End result is the organization delivers IT services faster, more reliably and at lower cost. As an administrator, I would like my single pane of glass into my VMware Infrastructure to be VMware vCenter. HP has done just that with the OneView + VMware Integration. Combining physical and virtual views from a single pane of glass, monitor the status and configuration of HP server, networking and storage that runs on your virtualized infrastructure, all of this in context of the cluster, host or virtual machine from VMware vCenter. Overall great direction from HP and VMware. Look forward to seeing the future enhancements and gaining complete visibility into all the layers via VMware VCenter.
