HP Enhances Automation Software

Company enhances its Business Service Automation software suite with updated versions of HP Storage Essentials and HP Operations Orchestration.

HP, a technology solutions provider, today announced new enhancements to its Business Service Automation (BSA) software suite to help customers better manage and reduce operational costs associated with virtualized data centers.

The company states that enhancements within the HP BSA software suite include updated versions of:

* HP Storage Essentials - a standards-based storage resource management software, helps customers manage the increased storage requirements of virtualized data centers by optimizing capacity allocation and utilization.

* HP Operations Orchestration - a run book automation software that automates incident resolution, change orchestration and routine maintenance tasks in the data center. This new release allows customers to reduce operational costs by better provisioning and repurposing servers and storage without service downtime.

The company adds that it has also launched HP BSA Essentials, an online community and subscription services offering that helps customers maximize the value of their HP BSA software investments.

It explains that virtualization can help IT organizations consolidate resources, cut capital expenditures and meet changing business requirements. However, the downside of virtualization can be higher operational costs due to increased complexity and storage management requirements. The new offerings are designed to help customers address these challenges so they can realize the benefits of the virtualization technology.

"Some customers have reduced the amount of time it took to provision and configure servers by 85 percent by using HP Business Service Automation software," said Michel Feaster, senior director, Products, Business Service Automation Software, HP. "Unlike other vendors that focus only on virtualized infrastructure or individual infrastructure silos, HP offers an integrated server, storage, network, client and process automation solution to coordinate the deployment of IT applications in virtual and physical infrastructures."
