Upgrade Your Career: Get HP ExpertOne Certified on NNMi v9



HP ExpertOne Network Node Manager (NNMi) Certification

HP Network Node Manager i (NNMi) software gives your network operations team powerful capabilities for managing a network of any size efficiently, reducing the business risk of downtime and increasing network service levels.


Why upgrade to NNMi v9?

NNMi v9 represents a major version upgrade, encompassing strategic and ongoing investments by HP in network management products. NNMi v9 increases ROI dramatically, by significantly enhancing ease of use, speed of deployment, and value returned. NNMi v9 is a major rewrite of the earlier, leading-edge NNMi 7 series, taking advantage of state-of-the-art coding methodologies used by today’s software developers. 


The primary advantages to customers upgrading to NNMi v9 include extreme scale, unified polling, a single configuration point, and a common console for all users, enhanced by a “user roles and responsibilities” login facility. NNMi v9 also enables extremely low administrative overhead, without sacrificing a sophisticated root cause analysis set of features.


The typical network management platform might be tasked with hundreds of thousands of events in a single day. With most NMS systems, these unconnected and meaningless events just clog up the event browser, and the operator has to review each separate event to try to figure out what is happening on the network. NNMi eliminates these problems, by analyzing incoming events in real time through RCA and correlating them on a massive scale. Instead of having thousands of events visible in the browser, NNMi can generate a single root-cause-based incident with the events being correlated under the parent incident.


Other capabilities that differentiate NNMi are its Spiral Discovery Engine, its real-time layer-2 fault analysis and database, and its ability to monitor virtual and physical networks.


Take advantage of powerful new enhancements, including operator efficiency and scalability, virtualization technologies, and smart plug-ins. Upgrade to NNMi v9 today!
