HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) software is a modular comprehensive resource management platform. With its extensive device support, IMC software provides true end-to-end management for the entire network, as well as the entire operation cycle.
HP IMC Virtual Application Networking (VAN) Software Defined Network (SDN) Manager Software is an IMC module providing comprehensive management including fault, configuration, accounting, monitoring and security for SDN environments. VAN SDN Manager Software integrates with the IMC platform, so administrators gain a single interface to manage both traditional and software-defined networks.
VAN SDN Manager Software monitors and manages all three layers of the SDN architecture: infrastructure, control and application layers. You will be able to visualize your software defined-network, including location of the switches- both physically and logically- relative to the control point of the network.
The traffic flow across the SDN domain is monitored and represented visually in VAN SDN Manager Software, enabling fast troubleshooting. IMC Software provides lifecycle management and monitoring of the HP VAN SDN Controller and provides details of network service status and OpenFlow related information.
