HPE OneView Microsoft Azure Log Analytics 1.0: one powerful way to manage your hybrid cloud

By Doug de Werd

If you have HPE OneView deployed in your IT environment, you know that it is one powerful tool that can transform servers, storage, and networking into a software-defined infrastructure. This, in turn, helps you eliminate complex manual processes, spur IT collaboration, and increase the speed and flexibility of IT service delivery. 

You have been so impressed with what HPE OneView delivers for you that many have asked me when its capabilities would be available for Microsoft Azure environment. The answer, I am pleased to report is: “Right now” with the recently-introduced HPE OneView for Microsoft Azure Log Analytics 1.0. 

Perfect timing. 

HPE OneView for Microsoft Azure Log Analytics 1.0 is a new integration that provides a bridge between Microsoft cloud management services and HPE hardware infrastructure. It runs in the Azure public cloud and provides on-premises HPE infrastructure information such as hardware and firmware inventory, infrastructure health and status, and long term event correlation and trend analysis into Azure Log Analytics. 

The solution contains an Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template that provides an HPE dashboard showing summaries and status of:

  • HPE OneView Appliances
  • Server Hardware
  • Server Profiles
  • Enclosures
  • Logical Interconnects
  • Physical Interconnects
  • Storage Systems
  • Storage Pools
  • Storage Volumes
  • SAS Interconnects
  • Drive Enclosures

Data is automatically collected from HPE OneView and HPE Synergy and processed in Azure Log Analytics. The solution includes Azure Automation runbooks that drive the generation of log records from information collected from on-premises instances of HPE OneView leveraging the Azure Hybrid Runbook worker. 

Additionally, any log record in the dashboard provides a link to the underlying Log Analytics search query, which allows you to create powerful and detailed custom searches.  A set of pre-defined saved searches is included to help navigate the log records generated by the solution. 

It also includes Azure Automation runbooks that drive the automatic generation of log records from information collected from on-premise instances of HPE OneView and HPE Synergy, leveraging the Azure Hybrid Runbook Worker.
