HP OneView is a fresh approach to converged infrastructure management, inspired by the way you expect to work, with a single integrated view of your IT infrastructure. HP OneView delivers a modern, integrated workspace for IT team collaboration. HP OneView is a software-defined management platform that deliberately addresses the challenges of manual operations, human error, and limited extensibility in virtualized BladeSystem and rack server environments. It is an optimal management platform for BladeSystem environments. By capturing processes, configurations, and best-practices in software, HP OneView creates a modern collaborative management approach that automates the deployment and management of infrastructure repeatedly, reliably, and at scale.
HP OneView delivers lifecycle management from a single, integrated platform designed for every member of the team to increase their productivity. It facilitates collaboration, removes friction and accelerates time to value. Transform inefficiencies into converged, agile operations that collapse cycle times and eliminate error-prone work. And because HP OneView is designed for open integration with existing tools and processes, it enables you to more effectively pursue your organization's IT objectives. With HP OneView, you'll work smarter-with greater visibility and control-and fully capitalize on the benefits of a converged infrastructure.
- Appliance simplicity
The management appliance is the lifecycle management tool that provisions, monitors, updates, and repairs your infrastructure.
- Modern architecture
HP OneView is a lifecycle management platform for the converged infrastructure. It manages the physical infrastructure needed to support virtualization, cloud computing, and mixed computing environments. Deploying, managing, troubleshooting, and maintaining a converged infrastructure for thousands of workloads is handled as easily as one.
- Single, integrated platform
With a single, integrated platform, every member of the team - across servers, storage, and networking - increases their productivity. It facilitates collaboration, removes friction and accelerates time to value. Transform inefficiencies into converged, agile operations that collapse cycle times and eliminate error-prone work.
- Simplicity by design
HP OneView streamlines day-to-day responsibilities by eliminating time-consuming process steps and tasks, leading to increased productivity and reduced costs. Manage IT across the entire infrastructure lifecycle-designing, provisioning, monitoring, updating-through a single interface that's designed for the way you think and work.
- Software-defined flexibility
Prepare for growth by capturing and standardizing your IT team's best practices - leveraging your best expertise across the organization. HP OneView keeps your best-practice approaches intact as you grow, but still allows for customization so that you maintain ultimate control. Faster provisioning, greater configuration consistency, and fewer errors dramatically improve IT performance overall.
- System health
Efficient data views and effective control enable you to respond to issues for managing the health of HP ProLiant servers. HP OneView simplifies monitoring by providing a streamlined, modern alert management architecture.
- Firmware updates and configuration change management
HP OneView enables efficient, reliable, non-disruptive, and simple firmware management across the data center with firmware baseline capabilities.
- Server provisioning
HP OneView provides the right-to-use a complete provisioning solution for HP servers, with capabilities for multi-server OS and firmware provisioning to ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. Server provisioning automates the process of deploying and provisioning server software, enabling companies to quickly and easily adapt to changing business demands.
HP OneView provides a secure platform for data center management. Key security characteristics of the architecture provide a holistic basis for security: the separation of data and management planes, incorporation of best practices by using groups, and provisioning control.
HP OneView provides a specific user role for appliance backup without permitting access to other resource views and tasks. Backup files are encrypted and contain configuration settings and management data - there is no need to create separate back up files for the appliance and its database files.
