The Power of One - A new approach to accelerating service delivery

Data centers have embraced virtualization and are tying applications and compute together- and some are even extending virtualization to build up stronger cloud environments and extend efficiencies. However, for the most part, they still exist in a world of silos- around virtualization, clouds, the availability of resources for different applications and provisioning those resources, around managing across infrastructures and troubleshooting across those infrastructures.


IT managers need a more agile, reliable converged infrastructure platform that is purpose-built for enterprise workloads such as virtualization and cloud computing, delivering industry leading TCO while increasing IT staff productivity.  Only HP BladeSystem and HP OneView deliver a single infrastructure and single management platform with automation for rapid delivery of service and rock-solid reliability with federated intelligence.  We call it the “Power of One.”


Paul Durzan, HP Vice President, Enterprise Server Business, explains how The Power of One is designed to allow you to move at the speed of business. 




As a result, HP BladeSystem is one infrastructure with one management platform founded on the principles of convergence, federation, and automation. We are bringing everything together into a single experience and the advantages are: 



       -     It encompasses everything – compute, network, storage, virtualization and management in one system, so you can save costs



     -    When you bring together HP BladeSystem and HP OneView, the chassis becomes a single canvas or a single system. While federated, HP OneView makes it one system such that you can move server profiles across multiple chassis, so any compute blade is available for any appropriate workload in the whole system.  A valuable benefit is the ability to automate the entire environment.

      -      Because it is federated and not hierarchal, this also creates a safer environment as failure domains are smaller and a failure in any one part does not impact the other parts

      -     We give choice of network fabrics but still act as a single system - as a whole



      -      HP OneView is a single software defined platform reducing the need for multiple management tools, streamlining processes and eliminating common sources of errors to speed the delivery of services.

      -      Making day to day lifecycle management easier with autonomic provisioning and proactive health monitoring and VM failover.


HP BladeSystem with HP OneView deliver a whole new experience for IT with the Power of One- one infrastructure, one management platform, from one company to speed the delivery of services.   Only the Power of One delivers leading infrastructure convergence, availability with federation and agility through data center automation.   HP BladeSystem helps you lower data center costs by 68% so you can shift investment from routine maintenance to innovation, maximize availability by reducing downtime up to 90%, and accelerate enterprise workload deployment such as virtualization and cloud computing up to 66x faster.
