- HP claims new software offerings help clients reduce complexity, save time and automate costly projects
- Minimizes application failure risks as a result of poorly constructed server clusters
HP announced new offerings that it claimed improve visibility into the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructure, enabling organizations to reduce complexity and take control of their IT processes and services.
The new HP Configuration Management System (CMS) 10 includes new HP Universal Discovery software, which offers automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects, it said in a statement.
Automated discovery capabilities enable clients to reduce costs and risks associated with service disruptions, as well as decrease the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50%, the company claimed.
HP Discovery software offerings are currently being used by 40% of the Fortune 50, six out of the seven largest global automotive manufacturers, and four out of the five largest global telecommunication service providers, it said.
HP CMS 10 enables enterprises, governments and managed service providers (MSPs) to:
- Save time by quickly discovering software and hardware inventory, as well as associated dependencies, in a single unified discovery solution;
- Speed time-to-value with a simplified user interface and enhanced scalability, allowing IT teams to consume and use rich intelligence hosted in the HP CMS;
- More easily manage multiple client environments within a single HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB) with improved security, automation and scalability;
- Save money by automatically locating and cataloging new technologies related to network hardware, open-source middleware, storage, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and infrastructure software providers; and
- Minimize application failure risks as a result of poorly constructed server clusters by introducing new server compliance thresholds.
“Service disruptions within complex cloud and virtualized environments are difficult to identify and resolve,” said Chew Kai Peng (pic), country manager, HP Software, HP Malaysia.
“With the new enhancements to HP Configuration Management System, IT executives now have the configuration intelligence they need at their fingertips to make rapid decisions to ensure consistent business service availability.”
HP CMS 10, a key component of the HP IT Performance Suite, is available worldwide in 10 languages and sold through HP Channel Partners. Additional information about the HP CMS 10 is available at www.hp.com/go/CMS.
