Features

Converged Management

HP OneView delivers a single management platform that supports HP DL servers, BladeSystem, 3PAR storage, and ConvergedSystem 300 and 700 platforms.
HP OneView delivers a simple converged management workspace that your entire IT team can use to manage your infrastructure. The 'one model, one data, one view' approach streamlines activities and communication while providing a consistent view of your environment.
HP Smart Search provides fast, sophisticated search to instantly find the exact information for which you look. And HP Activities gives you a common communication stream of real-time messages (like alerts, team messages, and updates) to reduce ad hoc processes and team productivity inhibitors.
HP MapView lets you see resource status, relationships and dependencies. Visualizing connections and relationships between resources provides fast collaborative troubleshooting and reduces operational errors.
HP Dashboard shows every device in your data center, from anywhere, with a fully mobile client. Tasks and alerts are shown, along with additional information which can be displayed for more specific areas of interest. Instantly receive notification of changes thru the state change message bus.

Software-defined Control

Software defined control via profiles and templates allows subject matter experts to create server, storage, and network resource definitions once and roll out new resources with consistency and reliability.
Fully-automated SAN zoning, including Brocade fabrics, allows you to attach/detach SAN volumes to server profiles without manual zoning. You can also use direct attach (Flat SAN) profiles between HP Virtual Connect and 3PAR StoreServ Storage.
Network Management using HP Virtual Connect supports Fibre Channel and FlexFabric interconnects. Enhancements support untagged traffic, VLAN tunneling, 'per FlexNIC' traffic stats, configurable LACP timers, min/max bandwidth settings, and bulk creation of networks via the UI or REST API.
Server profile configuration support for HP ProLiant BL and DL Servers automates firmware maintenance, boosts productivity, and saves time. Software-defined approaches capture your best practices by your experts into common templates and processes for leverage by your wider team.
The state change message bus and REST APIs provide automation and a closed-loop method of providing compliance. This allows virtualization administrators to automate control of HP compute, storage, and networking resources without detailed knowledge of each device.

Automated in Your Environment

HP OneView for Microsoft System Center enables provisioning using server profiles to create or grow a Hyper-V cluster. It shows clear relationships for health monitoring and alerting, and all existing HP integration features will work with HP OneView managed hosts.
HP OneView for VMware vCenter integrates with VMware vCenter, Operations Manager, and Log Insight. An HP entitlement allows Operations Manager integration on the standard edition. It leverages 3PAR shared storage and/or boot from SAN for creating or growing clusters using an automated workflow.
HP OneView for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization provides a single view of the virtual and physical infrastructure -- showing inventory, health, and configuration monitoring. HP management tools such as iLO, OnBoard Administrator, and Virtual Connect can be launched with single-sign-on.
HP OneView is fully programmable to allow users easy creation, integration, and customization for their own environment. The architecture allows full management access using its open REST APIs, a consistent data model, and state-change message bus.
HP OneView can be used to automatically synchronize physical and virtual networks. Provision ESXi hosts up to 20x faster with this approach or create clusters in an automated fashion 6x faster than with conventional tools. Using HP OneView as an intelligent hub speeds your IT implementation.
