HPE Expands Composability with HPE OneView 3.1


HPE OneView News.pngThis week at Discover 2017 Las Vegas, HPE introduced an update to HPE OneView that expands composability and brings software-defined intelligence to more platforms. HPE OneView 3.1 adds software-defined storage, extends platform support, enhances lifecycle management, improves remote support and offers new features in the global dashboard. The latest version of HPE’s extremely popular and award-winning infrastructure automation engine will be available for customers to download, evaluate, and purchase later this summer.

HPE OneView streamlines lifecycle operations across compute, storage and fabric resources through a single interface designed for the way IT thinks and works. Productivity is increased via a unified API that connects infrastructure with applications and places customers firmly on the path toward a composable infrastructure.

The newly announced HPE OneView 3.1 delivers enhancements, including:

  • Common approach to storage management simplifies provisioning of storage volumes and removes inefficiencies with support for HPE’s leading composable, software-defined StoreVirtual VSA storage.
  • Extended platform support gives even more HPE customers the ability to easily manage their platforms with one, comprehensive management tool.  HPE OneView now provides support for HPE Synergy, ProLiant BL, DL and ML, HPE Apollo and HPE Superdome X servers.
  • Simplified firmware management enables updates to occur faster and easier with minimal disruption to production workloads.
  • Enhanced remote support lets you plan service contracts more efficiently. Contract and warranty display is available for each device, so you can easily see in advance what is going to be out of contract and warranty.
  • Global dashboard extends functionality to even more HPE platforms, adding support for up to 12,800 servers and 20 HPE OneView appliances. The update also added the ability to backup and restore the global dashboard in the event of a disaster, and easy access to data using customized reports with built-in filtering, sorting, and saving.
  • New HPE Composable Ecosystem additions give customers even more choices to take advantage of the unified API to automate their solutions. The latest partners include: Mesosphere for provisioning and extending clusters, ServiceNow for improving service levels with immediate event visibility, by Cirba for intelligent capacity optimization, and Red Hat OpenShift for bare-metal containers as a service.

“Today’s businesses need a break-through infrastructure automation tool that simplifies hybrid IT and lets them operate faster, streamline lifecycle operations and increase software developer productivity,” said John Schmitz, CMO HPE OneView/ HPE Synergy. “HPE OneView does just that – it makes your complex hybrid IT infrastructure simple to deploy and manage. HPE OneView 3.1 continues the tradition of HPE innovation by providing even more ways for you to increase the speed of IT delivery for new applications and services, while still efficiently managing your traditional IT.” 

After HPE OneView 3.1 becomes available, HPE will offer a free trial download.  HPE also provides a comprehensive array of services and flexible licensing options to help accelerate a customer’s transition to HPE OneView. These include a fee-waived HPE OneView readiness assessment, HPE OneView migration implementation services, education and training services and lower cost HPE OneView upgrade license for customers who previously purchased iLO Advanced, Insight Control and/or VCEM with their servers.
