Demartek Evaluates HP OneView vs. Cisco UCSManager

on ‎07-29-2014 06:43 AM

HP commissioned Demartek to compare HP OneView and Cisco UCS Manager with respect to deploying and maintaining blade server platforms.  Demartek found that for Day 1 tasks, such as initial server deployment, HP and Cisco were comparable with HP taking less time .  However these tasks are the first few minutes of a 3 year life of a server. 
Where HP OneView really shines are the next 3 years of IT tasks that IT admins deal with every day.  These include break fix tasks, change management, etc and this is where HP OneView’s features that provide true and lasting business value for new revenue producing services and service availability become true differentiators.

 

Demartek had worked with Cisco UCS Manager in other testing they had done, but working with HP OneView was a new experience for them. The report is very interesting in what they discovered when comparing the two infrastructure managers.
