Converged storage management
But of course storage is only part of your infrastructure. What about your servers and networking gear, and their relationships with your storage? Most management tools are designed with specialists in mind, but sometimes you need the big picture. In hybrid, cloud, and software-defined data centers, control is moving up the management stack—from IT specialists to IT generalists, to application and service owners, to users, and ultimately to applications themselves. Converged management embraces this trend.
HP believes that a big part of tearing down data center silos is transforming management as well—into something that’s not just automated, but converged, software-defined, and open. With insight and control that spans compute, storage, and networking domains, converged management means fewer conversations, fewer customized scripts, fewer errors, and faster time to solution.
