Frost and Sullivan: HP OneView Product Innovation Award report

on ‎11-13-2013 07:19 AM

HP had recently announced our new Converged Infrastructure managment platform: HP OneView. Already it is being recognized for its innovative approach to managing the new Style of IT being implemented today in advanced data centers.


Frost & Sullivan recently announced their "2013 North American Software Defined Data Center

Management Platforms New Product Innovation Award"


Excerpts from the award:


.....There is a new technology model that is enabling business results. The software-defined

data center, or SDDC, follows virtualization and cloud computing in IT’s current technology

evolution. By enabling all data center components to be defined in software, delivered as a

service, and managed by a robust orchestration platform, IT is able to maximize its

infrastructure and scale services as needed, while making them as effective and efficient as

possible. Frost & Sullivan notes that its value lies in the ability to deliver applications and

data to users more quickly, efficiently, and effectively than ever before, while reducing the

overall data center footprint. Application and service optimization and delivery is at the

heart of the SDDC’s value proposition.


HP has a new infrastructure orchestration platform that was launched in late September

2013. Branded as HP OneView, the platform is an integrated management offering designed

to manage HP infrastructure across compute, storage and networking today, but is swiftly

moving toward multi-cloud management for both physical and virtual environments from

multiple vendors through a single user interface. Developed using open standards and

modern APIs, it allows IT organizations to efficiently provision and manage an entire

environment through a single management platform. It can also automate security and

compliance resulting in considerable time savings and risk reduction from human induced

errors. HP OneView relies on representation state transfer, or RESTful, API, enabling easier

management of environments including mobile or social components that also rely on the

REST protocol. HP OneView is part of HP’s overall software offering and moves the company

closer to an application-centric mode of data center operation and management.
