Technology solutions giant HP Malaysia's new solutions can help double the speed of cloud and help IT departments have enhanced control of their IT processes, it said.
A deeper view of the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructures will help to clarify complexity, according to HP Malaysia country manager, HP software, Chew Kai Peng.
"Service disruptions within complex cloud and virtualised environments are difficult to identify and resolve," said Chew. "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."
He said the new HP Configuration Management System (CMS) 10 included new HP Universal Discovery software, which offered automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects. Automated discovery capabilities help clients to reduce costs and risks associated with service disruptions, as well as decrease the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50 percent, according to HP's study filed at the TechValidate Research library.
In addition, HP CMS clients have recently seen an increase in speed of projects completed, said Chew. By using HP's solutions, Austria-based financial services firm Raiffeisen Rechenzentrum Süd GmbH said it has increased operational efficiency by 20-30 percent in a case study.
"Following the introduction of HP Universal CMDB and Discovery and Dependency Mapping (DDM) Software, we are right up there with the front runners when it comes to combining IT processes with best practices and technologies," said Raiffeisen Rechenzentrum Süd GmbH managing director, Dietmar Schlar. "This reinforces our position as a strategic partner for our customers and leading provider of computer centre technology further still."
More efficient means of modelling data centre services
"CMDB implementations have additional complexity when there are requirements for dependency mapping, discovery and inventory tools," said Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst, IT operations management, Ronni Colville. "A unified offering that combines the best of both could offer users a more efficient means of tracking and modelling data-centre services, applications and infrastructure."
HP Discovery software offerings are currently being used by 40 percent of the Fortune 50, as well as six out of the seven largest global automotive manufacturers, and four out of the five largest global telecommunication service providers, said an HP media statement.
The 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
- Minimise application failure risks as a result of poorly constructed server clusters by introducing new server compliance thresholds.
Available worldwide in 10 languages, HP CMS 10 is a key component of the HP IT Performance Suite, the next-generation enterprise performance software platform that enables IT management to improve performance with operational intelligence.
