HP has released Storage Operations Manager, a new heterogeneous storage resource management package. The software is customer installable and designed to be simple to get up and running so that you can discover and visualize your storage environment and gain new levels of control over it. The installation takes about 40 minutes to complete, start to finish, most of which is after user input is complete. The install does require a bit of pre-planning but if you have all the requirements in order, it is smooth sailing.
