New software management tools, which can be deployed across HP's x86 ProLiant and BladeSystem servers, keep track of assets within an enterprise's data center.
Hewlett-Packard on Jan. 16 is scheduled to unveil a series of software management tools designed to keep track of assets within an enterprise's data center.
The new software, which includes improvements to HP's Insight Control Environment, Systems Insight Manager and Insight Power Manager, will work with the company's x86 line of servers, which includes the HP ProLiant and BladeSystem systems. The software will also work with Microsoft Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems.
These software offerings are all part of the Palo Alto, Calif., company's Unified Infrastructure Management portfolio, which falls under HP's Adaptive Infrastructure program. This program, which brings together hardware, software and services, is HP's effort to address data center issues in a more holistic and flexible way.
"When you look at the proliferation of a data center's assets and then try to manage all those assets, it really starts to become a burden," said Paul Miller, vice president of marketing for industry-standard servers and BladeSystem at HP.
