With HPE OneView reaching one million licenses globally, HPE is simplifying the infrastructure management with advancements to OneView and OneSphere. The company aims to help businesses automate and streamline data center operations, gain insights faster across hybrid cloud and accelerate service delivery.
HPE OneView is an infrastructure automation engine that helps enterprises to deploy workloads faster and increase efficiency through workflow automation.
The new features in HPE OneView 4.1 will enable customers to automate virtual machine (VM) farm lifecycle management for VM clusters and offer cloud-based support.
It features integrations for Microsoft Azure Log Analytics and VMware vRealize Orchestrator, to enable faster deployment of workloads. HPE said that integration with Azure Log Analytics will provide a bridge between Microsoft cloud management services and HPE hardware infrastructure.
OneView for VMware vRealize Orchestrator will automate the complex IT tasks. It comes with a predefined set of HPE tasks and workflows that customers can use in vRealize Orchestrator.
Further, HPE stated that there are new reference configurations in OneView for Chef automation, and reference architecture for HPE Synergy with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This expanded ecosystem will help customers to quickly compose infrastructure and workloads.
“As enterprise cloud adoption continues to mature, organizations are developing a comprehensive strategy for managing both on- and off-premises infrastructure,” said Ric Lewis, senior vice president and general manager, Software Defined and Cloud Group, HPE. “HPE OneView brings together all aspects of everyday lifecycle management across compute, storage and network resources into one place, giving companies the cloud performance they need to meet today’s rapidly evolving business needs.”
On the other hand, HPE OneSphere is an as-a-service hybrid cloud management solution used to simplify management of hybrid clouds. It is a platform for IT operations, business executives and developers to work together effectively.
With the updates, OneSphere now includes expanded support for Microsoft Azure public cloud and Kernal-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. It will help enterprises to easily provision resources and get key insights in utilizations and costs of workloads usage in clouds.
OneSphere is now available, while OneView 4.1 is expected to be available by end of June 2018.
