What's New with HPE OneView 5.0What's New with HPE OneView 5.0

HPE OneView 5.0 simplifies managing firmware compliance and adds new software-defined capabilities to automate data center management.

Many businesses are managing and consuming more IT services across a hybrid infrastructure that combines traditional IT along with private, managed, and public clouds. Managing infrastructure within these multi—site environments can be complex and time-consuming, because common tools and automation across all these sites are lacking. Many IT administrators often waste countless hours on manual tasks that are prone to errors and responding to constant change requests.

IT administrators can transform their IT infrastructure with software-defined automation by using HPE OneView that enables IT administrators to deploy infrastructure faster, simplify lifecycle operations, and increase productivity.  Then, IT administrators can easily compose on-premises physical infrastructure. Since the physical infrastructure of the datacenter is defined using software, it becomes programmable and able to be managed as code through one unified API.  Finally, HPE OneView enables IT administrators the ability to connect their software-defined infrastructure from core to cloud by provisioning turnkey private cloud infrastructure with a diverse partner ecosystem.

Customer success story with HPE OneView

ELFETEX, one of the largest providers of wholesale electrical products in the Czech Republic needed a better way to track, update, and deploy their servers and storage systems. After comparing different infrastructure management solutions, ELFETEX selected HPE OneView. “There are two main reasons why we chose HPE OneView,” says Becvar, IT Specialist at ELFETEX. “One is the centralized monitoring capabilities, which helps me resolve issues more rapidly. The second reason is efficiency.” He explains, “We have a fleet of seventeen different servers. With HPE OneView, I can view all my servers to deploy packages and drivers from one location instead of individually, which saves me time.”

What’s new with HPE OneView 5.0

HPE OneView 5.0 adds many updates that will help simplify managing your IT infrastructure.  Below are some key features that will be available in this release:

Firmware compliance dashboard

HPE OneView 5.0 introduces an innovative concept for managing firmware compliance at scale for all HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers, HPE BladeSystems and HPE Synergy. When a new firmware baseline (Service Pack for ProLiant) is loaded, HPE OneView generates a new firmware compliance view on the HPE OneView dashboard. HPE OneView will compare the installed firmware versions of the managed hardware with the new component versions in the added SPP and will generate this compliance report. The firmware compliance dashboard is an interactive experience that enables the users to quickly determine what firmware is out of compliance and manage the firmware updates based on their schedules.

Automated SAN Storage volume provisioning for DL and Apollo Servers

This new feature provides a simple way to automate SAN volume provisioning in HPE OneView via server profiles and templates. Instead of taking hours to manually provision storage for DL and Apollo servers, HPE OneView automation allows IT administrators to complete the task in minutes with just a few clicks.

New HPE OneView features for HPE Synergy

With HPE OneView 5.0, improved performance, enhanced security and new management features can be achieved through new features that improve the overall HPE Synergy experience. Here are some key examples:

  • Secure boot where system firmware is not compromised during upgrades
  • Remote access via iLO that allows updates
  • Troubleshooting and restore from a remote client
  • IPv6 support, giving HPE Synergy customers at telco companies and service providers the ability to expand network address space they need
  • Streamlined network deployment across HPE OneView resources in a single step using automated VLAN provisioning.

Usability enhancements and new platform support

HPE OneView 5.0 offers an updated user interface, providing a common look and feel across HPE management tools like HPE OneView Global Dashboard.  It also adds support for the HPE Superdome Flex.  

The Future with HPE OneView

With over one million plus licenses sold, and as CRN’s 2018 Product of the Year, HPE OneView continues to demonstrate value for customers looking to manage their complex IT infrastructure in a more efficient way. HPE OneView 5.0 will become available in late summer 2019.
