HP Storage Management Integration with Microsoft System Center


Previously I’ve covered HP Storage Management Pack but now there is another HP Storage tool that integrates with System Center component named HP Storage UI add-in for System Center Virtual Machine Manager. These two tools combined together represent HP Storage Management Integration with Microsoft System Center.

So what is exactly this new tool:

HP Storage UI add-in for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) enables enhanced integration of SCVMM and HP Storage providing our customers a single pane-of-glass monitoring view of physical, virtual and cloud environments. It automates HP Storage management and provides an integrated view of VMs and associated storage resources.

HP Storage supports all SMI-S-enabled functionality introduced in SCVMM 2012 – Storage Discovery, Storage Classification, Storage Provisioning and Storage Allocation.

HP Storage also provides a new HP Storage UI Add-in for enhanced monitoring, provisioning and control of HP Storage in SCVMM environment.

 

Personally I haven’t the chance to try it but from what I’ve seen from demos and screenshots it is definitely worth a try if you have one of the following storages:

  • HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage – HP 3PAR StoreServ 10000 Storage, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage, F-Class, T-Class, HP 3PAR OS 3.1.1 and 3.1.2
  • HP StoreOnce Backup – HP StoreOnce Backup: HP D2D 2000, D2D 4000 and HP StoreOnce B6000 Gen 3 Backup Systems

You can download it for free from here.
