Infotech Lead India: HP announced new software and services that help automate the life cycle of IT services — from data center maintenance to delivery of business processes.
HP says its new data center automation and cloud management software is designed to enable enterprise IT to deliver services on a massive scale—on premises or via the cloud.
By automating time-consuming operations, the automation and cloud management software from HP minimizes complexities in heterogeneous environments and allows IT to focus on higher- impact activities to increase the overall value for the business.
HP’s automation, orchestration and cloud management software solutions drive business growth by deploying innovative IT services on a massive scale with HP Operations Orchestration (OO) 10, which automates the execution of up to 15,000 simultaneous operations.
The new cloud management solution lowers IT costs by delivering computing capacity with HP Server Automation (SA) 10, which automates server life cycle management to increase utilization, while reducing manual administration.
McKesson utilized HP’s new cloud management solution and delivered both IaaS and PaaS in under an hour. The company also reduced IT service outages by 78 percent. It also reduced the occurrence of critical IT incidents by 65 percent. McKesson deployed 40 percent more IT systems.
Andy Smith, vice president, Application Hosting Services, McKesson, said: “HP cloud and automation software enabled us to improve our IT operations by automating routine, repetitive tasks prone to human error, encouraging our employees to focus on innovative IT services.”
HP OO 10 speeds time to value with support for more than 5,000 IT operations, including new support for Amazon S3 Storage, HP ArcSight, HP Fortify, OpenStack and SAP applications. This enables IT organizations to quickly automate their business processes.
The HP SA 10 enterprise-grade server life cycle management platform allows IT to manage more than 100,000 physical and virtual servers(2) from a single pane of glass to eliminate management complexity. It also improves operational economics by reducing the administrator-to-server ratio by up to 60 percent.
HP SA 10 offers HP Server Automation Standard, a virtual appliance that allows smaller organizations and department-level IT teams to begin managing server environments in less than one hour.
