It is the software that makes a blade server into a BladeSystem
HP BladeSystem servers, infrastructure and software are designed as a comprehensive solution for the modern datacenter. Taken by themselves, blade servers could be seen as just a bunch of servers. HP goes beyond that fact, building an intelligent infrastructure, integrated signal routing featuring switching by industry-standard manufacturers like Brocade, Cisco and Nortel, plus industry leading software based on HP Systems Insight Manager.
The HP BladeSystem Management Suite brings the most-desired extensions to HP Systems Insight Manager together as one easy-to-use and integrated system. It is easy to use because all of the features follow the same operational model, reducing training costs and building on existing skills. The BladeSystem Management Suite brings benefits from first startup through the life of the system:
Rapid Deployment: Automatic tasks can be set up and customized to install operating system and optional software at your command or because of an event like insertion of a blade in a slot. Because this eliminates the inconsistencies of manual installation, systems deployed this way are easier to support in the long run.
Performance Management: Many organizations have found that they have to use their most experienced personnel to diagnose issues with performance, taking them away from other essential tasks. The Performance Management Pack reduces the need for this expertise and empowers even junior members of the staff to troubleshoot and identify potential configuration problems.
Security and Vulnerability: Auditing systems to ensure compliance with security policies is a very time-consuming activity. Taken together with the high visibility that security breaches have at the highest levels of the organization, this ranks as a priority in most IT organizations. More than just a patch acquisition and deployment system, the vulnerability and Patch Management pack provides comprehensive scan and remediation capability to easily make sure systems are within your own security policies.
