On the services front, HP is upping the ante on support.
"From the original design, we thought about services from the start," says Mary McCoy, vice president of Technology Services at HP. "HP is including three years of 24-by-7 technical support and three years of updates with each license."
"You also get 60 minutes of web-based training," she adds. "CIOs buy tools for IT managers and often those tools will only get used at 20 percent of their capacity. We want people to access the full capacity of this tool. We want you to know everything this tool is capable of, to understand its full extensibility and programmatic approach."
HP will make OneView available beginning in October. Pricing will begin at $799 for a single license.
