VMware and HP continue to innovate systems management

HP Insight Control Is the First Integration with VMware vCenterâ„¢ Server to Provide a Single Solution for Managing Both Physical and Virtual Infrastructures

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., September 1, 2009 — Today at VMworld 2009, VMware and HP announced a solution that will enable customers to manage both physical and virtual infrastructure through the VMware vCenter™ console. This solution will increase administrator efficiency. HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter™ Server, the first integration of its kind, was unveiled during HP’s Super Session keynote at VMworld 2009. It is also being presented at demonstrations throughout the event and at the HP booth in the Solutions Exchange (Booth No. 2023).

Customers are demanding tighter integration between virtual and physical environments to simplify the user experience and provide greater infrastructure control in a simple, familiar interface. HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter Server will enable administrators to more efficiently and easily manage both the physical and virtual components of their virtualized infrastructure through the VMware vCenter console. Customers can streamline day-to-day monitoring and management tasks while freeing up IT staff to focus on more strategic projects that better align technology to business needs.

“VMware and HP have joined together to help customers maximize their return on investment in virtualization, continuing our longstanding relationship of deep technology collaboration,” said Raghu Raghuram, vice president and general manager, Server Business Unit, VMware. “The new HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter™ Server combines two industry-leading management solutions to offer customers the best of both worlds through ‘single-pane-of-glass’ infrastructure management. The solution will help customers manage virtualized environments more easily, with familiar tools that their IT staff has been trained on. At the same time, customers will be able to improve operational efficiencies by spending less time on maintenance issues and more time building out solutions that will help increase revenue.”

This is great news, anything we can do to make support and management of the virtual and physical infrastructure has to be a good thing for the end user, being able to move between environments can reduce support costs and improve delivery. That I can have a unified viewpoint of the infrastructure might also enable us to further move towards the application specific or infrastructure specific customer viewpoint – where are we in terms of utilization on both the physical and virtual server estates. Interesting, I’ll need to check it out.
